The 34-year-old is now able to join Russian club Spartak Moscow. “We wish Dominico all the best and every success with his new challenge in Moscow,” said sporting director Jochen Schneider.

Domenico Tedesco took over the role of head coach at the club for the 2017/18 season. He led the Royal Blues to 2nd in the league and to the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal.
