It ended with our victory with a humiliating hockey score of 7: 4. In 1990, Vyacheslav Bykov and his colleague on the ice decided to move to the Swiss club, Friborg Gotteron, but both continue to play in the CIS team.

During this time, the gold of the Olympics-92 and the World Cup-93 was added to his piggy bank. After 8 years, Vyacheslav moved to an ice hockey club “Lausanne”, Switzerland, after 2 years, he ended his career as an ice hockey player. At this time, the legendary striker was 40 years old.

Coaching career

After completing his playing career, Vyacheslav Bykov (coach), whose biography described above, stayed in Switzerland, became a citizen and started working at the hockey club. Friborg Gotteron. Then, in 2004, Vyacheslav was invited to lead the CSKA group, where he worked until 2009. And from 2006, he was invited to lead the Russian team.

Success is not long, and in the recent season, both teams can reach the main peak: CSKA reached the semi-finals of the playoffs in the Russian championship, and the team won in three stages European Championship, but lost in the final.

In 2007, under the training of Vyacheslav Bykov, the Russian team at the World Championship won bronze, and a year later, she was able to win the title of world champion, at the age of 15. In 2009, when Vyacheslav was still the country’s head coach, he signed a contract with hockey club Ufa Salavat Yulaev.

Under Bykov’s leadership, the team won a bronze medal in the 09/10 season and the following year they won the Gagarin Cup. In 2011, Bykov left the Ufa club. A year ago, the Russian national team under Bukov’s leadership suffered a heavy defeat, losing the Olympic Games in Canada in the quarterfinals with a score of 3: 7, and in 2011 at the World Championship in our country.

There is absolutely no reward. This is the reason for the departure of Bykov. In 2014, Vyacheslav returned to hockey and became coach of the SKA team, and in the first season, the club managed to get the Gagarin Cup. In 2015, Bykov left the club, and to this day he does not participate in a coaching career. As Vyacheslav himself said, his return was impossible.
