Valeriy Lobanovskiy

Coached the national teams of the USSR, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates and Kuwait, clubs Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk and Dynamo Kiev.

Football fans of the older generation, I found the beginning of 1960, should be good to remember the famous corner kick striker Dynamo Lobanovsky. He tightened the ball so skillfully that he was describing a curve, suddenly wrapped in a neighbor or a distant corner of a sudden for a goalkeeper.

None of the spectators, however, did not suspect that skillfully mastered reception was preceded by ... rigorous physical and mathematical calculations. Lobanovsky footballer, who graduated from school with a silver medal, playing in the Dynamo, while successfully studied at the Kiev Polytechnic Institute. Speaking the language of science, in their brand of angular, he used the so-called Magnus effect, deflecting rotating body from the rectilinear motion. Footballer with the aid of calculated speed run, the application point of hitting the ball and his strength, and then brought pursuant to the corner of automatism, hundreds of times practicing kick in training.

The same scientific approach to football and later became the basis of coaching Lobanovskiy, and coach, he became very early - at twenty-nine years. Prior to that, seven years Lobanovsky played at Dynamo Kiev, three years in Odessa "Chernomorets" and two years at Shakhtar Donetsk. Special coaching education Lobanovsky not received, but he closely observed the work of outstanding coaches, under whose leadership played - Viktor Maslov and Oleg Oshenkov. As if to justify a general rule, Valery Lobanovsky, remembered for its magnificent corner, a great player and did not, but as a coach immediately drew attention to themselves.

His first club was the Dnipropetrovsk "Dnipro". When in 1968 a young coach led the team, she played in the first league. Five years later, "Dnipro" came out in the big leagues, and immediately made an amazing jump, finishing in the USSR Championship 6 th place. Then the coach asked to lead the thirty four eminent Soviet Club - Dynamo Kiev, from which Ukraine had expected only victories. Agreeing Lobanovsky coach invited to work together with him his former partner on the game at Dynamo Oleg Bazilevich, who then worked at Shakhtar Donetsk.

Tandem Lobanovsky - Bazilevich lasted two and a half years. During this time, young coaches have dramatically changed the training process, first in the country, putting it on a scientific basis. In the training program there was nothing minor, the whole season was divided into stages so as to ensure players are not cases of physical or emotional downturns. In accordance with the determined load and physical exercise. Each player had an individual lesson plan, and the prospect for next season. Footballers held daily medical test control.

Load during training were very large, unusual training exercises.

Exercise and control tests trainers have developed along with a team of sports physicians and researchers, they also determined the "dose" loads for each player in accordance with his physical state at one time or another. Nothing of the kind in the Soviet team, and even in foreign at the time was not yet.

Equally scientifically coaches came up and the organization of the game, making it a purely rational. Came the famous "destination model" Lobanovskiy - on foreign fields, the team played in an emphatically defensive football, but is often defeated by counter-attacks. At its same field Kievans are brought formidable offensive force, leading the powerful attack, which was based, again, rationality and strict organization.

Coaching innovations are not all the players liking. Some load seemed unbearable, and training exercises are too difficult, it was hard to get used to the daily tests and constant contact with the medical team. Some of the players went to other clubs. But those who stayed, significantly added to the endurance and skill.

Hyper-rationality game Dynamo also initially not to everyone. Sports journalists unanimously rebuked Lobanovsky and Bazilevich that their "models" are deprived of football entertainment and beauty. However, since the first season in 1974 was the coaches job to bring high-profile victory. Strong Leningrad Zenith, for instance, was defeated with a score of 5:0. The coaching debut of the "tandem" was sverhudachnym - in 1974, people of Kiev became the champions of the USSR and won the National Cup. In 1975 he again became champions.

Also in 1975 came loud and international success. Kievans done something before this could not be any one of the Soviet team - won the Cup Winners' Cup, surely winning the final of the Hungarian "Ferencvaros - 3:0. Autumn was won more big victories - Dynamo Kiev won the European Super Cup, defeating two games famous Bayern Munich, which for two consecutive years owned the European Cup.

In both games scored by Oleg Blokhin, who in that year, in addition to all the successes of Kiev the best player in Europe. In Munich, Blokhin, receiving a sharp pass on the rate went from defenders ahead of the Franz Beckenbauer and accurately hit the corner of the goal Sepp Maier. This goal was the only one in the second leg in Kiev Blokhin scored against Bayern Munich has two goals - one at the end of the first half and another early in the second. Magnificent victory largely facilitated by the fact that Lobanovsky having a solid "dossier" on Bayern Munich and had a full picture of her playing style and individual needs of all players, in accordance with this built a model of action for his team.

At the same time, Valery Lobanovsky at the same time was the head coach and the team of the USSR.

He was appointed in the spring of the same 1975, "hastily" after being in a European Championship qualifying games in 1976 the Soviet national team in his first match against Ireland suffered a crushing defeat with the score 0:3.

Without further ado, Lobanovsky created a new team of eleven players of Dynamo Kiev. Then was born a playful saying: "The Soviet team - it's Dynamo Kiev, weakened by players from other teams." In the next four games team won four victories in a row and ahead of schedule was ranked first in the group.

However, in spring 1976 still had an inordinate burden that fell the people of Kiev, who fought on three fronts. In April, the USSR national team lost in the first quarterfinal match of Prague, Czechoslovakia national team, the future champion of Europe in 1976. The return match ended in a draw - 2:2. USSR squad eliminated from the draw. In the same year the USSR Olympic team, which were all the same Dynamo Kiev, lost a semifinal match of the football tournament XXI Olympic Games in Montreal, the GDR national team and eventually became only the 3 rd prize.

After this period of enthusiastic praise, which hits Lobanovskiy, followed by a sharp criticism of his methods. From the management team, he was released, fell apart and the coaching tandem. " Lobanovsky been alone all focused on working with Dynamo Kiev, which next year once again brought to the championship of the USSR, and in 1978 he won the USSR Cup.

Like any coach, Valery Lobanovsky was destined not just to experience the vicissitudes of fate. Twice he had to leave the Dynamo and twice returned to his native club. Twice, when not ladilis affairs in the national team, he again invited to lead the first team of the country. He had to work abroad - in 1990-1992, he coached the national team of the United Arab Emirates in 1994-1996, the national team of Kuwait. At different periods of his coaching methods are praised and criticized. However, they took over the leading foreign coaches, but he did his job, achieving outstanding results.

Dynamo Kiev under his leadership won the USSR championship eight times and six times conquered Cup. Even after the collapse of the USSR Kievites five time champions of Ukraine and three times won the Ukrainian Cup. In 1986, the second time in its history, people of Kiev won the Cup Winners' Cup, beating, this time in the final match of the club Atletico Madrid - 3:0. Honors Lobanovsky as the head coach of the Soviet Union were still modest: in 1988 the Soviet team was the vice champion of Europe, giving the strongest team of Holland - 0:2.

Last years of his life Valery Lobanovsky led Dynamo Kiev and the Ukrainian team.
