Schwarz reflects on initial few months at Dynamo Moscow

Sandro Schwarz created a lot of headlines by deciding to end his time in German football – for the time being – by taking over the managerial job at FC Dynamo Moscow. Schwarz has made most of his name in the managerial game at Mainz 05. After being offered the youth team managerial job at Mainz 05 in 2013,Schwarz slowly moved up the ranks beforebecoming the first team boss in 2017. He spent just over two years in charge of team. During this period, Schwarz was in charge of more than 80 games with an average return of just over one point per match.

After leaving Mainz 05 back in November,Schwarz had been out of work for almost a year. Even though the pandemic meant that there was little football player during this period, Schwarz surprised everyone by returning back to management with Russian outfit Dynamo Moscow. The move is expected to bring reduced pressure upon the 42-year-old, who disagrees with the consensus. He says that there is pressure at any club and it would be nice to think otherwise. After a lot of investment into the Dynamo Moscow squad, the club are expecting success. So far, Dynamo Moscow have been unable to make a major impact in the Russian Premier League and the club are sixth in the standings.

“There is always pressure. Pressure is not unusual for a coach. I can handle it well. I can already speak the most important words, but I still have a long way to go. Standing in front of the Kremlin on Red Square for the first time: that was impressive. We are constantly being tested. In this respect, our little bladder is more or less a familiar life,” saidSchwarz.Schwarz made his name at Mainz 05 as a player and as a manager.
