It’s a game that most football fans feel is the highlight of the season as Liverpool host rivals Man Utd this Saturday!

Former Denmark international Michael Laudrup has signed a 18-month contract to coach Spartak Moscow.

“I received a very serious offer from a big club,” Laudrup, 44, was quoted as saying by Spartak’s website (www.spartak.com).

He succeeds caretaker coach Igor Ledyakhov, who replaced Stanislav Cherchesov last month after he was fired following Spartak’s 8-2 aggregate defeat by Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League third qualifying round.

Laudrup most recently managed Spanish Premier League team Getafe, who reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup last season.

Spartak have been in disarray in recent years. They have only won one Russian Cup since 2001 and currently lie in fifth position in the league, nine points behind leaders Rubin Kazan.
