Russia coach Dick Advocaat has revealed he will step down after the European Championship this year.

The Dutchman’s contract expires after the tournament in Poland and Ukraine.

Advocaat says that he will not take up an offer of a two-year extension.

“After the European Championship, I’ll go,” the 64-year-old told Sport-Express. “I haven’t told the players yet, but I’m sure it won’t affect our preparation for the tournament.

“We will make every effort to have a successful campaign.

“I can’t tell you the reasons yet, but knowing about all the speculation, I’ll say right now it’s not about the money.”

Advocaat succeeded countryman Guus Hiddink in May 2010, and has led Russia successfully through qualification for Euro 2012.

Russia will compete in Group A in the tournament alongside Poland, Greece and Czech Republic.
