MOSCOW (RUSSIA) – Leonid Fedun , patron of Spartak Moscow , was hospitalized because he tested positive for coronavirus.
Fedun is 64 years old and the doctors, after the first tests, deemed hospitalization necessary .
Fedun has been leading one of the most prestigious clubs in Russian football since 2003.
The Spartak patron loves Italian football and for this reason he has decided to focus strongly on the Italian-German coach Domenico Tedesco.
The Spartak Moscow record includes 12 Soviet championships (second only to Dynamo Kiev), 10 Russian championships played since 1992 (with very good placings, including three second places in a row), 10 Soviet cups, 3 Russian cups, a Super Cup of Russia and a Russian Federations Cup (altogether 15 national cups).
He also reached the semifinals in each of the three European Cups (in the 1990-1991 Champions League, in the 1992-1993 Cup Winners' Cup and in the 1997-1998 UEFA Cup).
Spartak's big rival is CSKA Moscow, although this opposition is relatively recent, having only emerged in the 1980s.
One of the historical rivalries also concerns Spartak and Dinamo Moscow's neighbors.
Matches against Lokomotiv Moscow and Zenit St. Petersburg also attract thousands of people and are almost always played in full stadiums.
Another historic rivalry has been lost with the collapse of the Soviet Union: the one with Dinamo Kiev, one of the leading teams of the Soviet championship which is now competing in the Ukrainian championship (source Wikipedia).
