El Mundo Deportivo reports that currently unemployed Pepu Hernandez could be on his way to Russia. He could replace Kestutis Kemzura, head coach of Khimki. Russian club spent lots of money last summer to bring Carlos Delfino and Jorge Garbajosa to the team.
Although Khimki are not having bad results this season but their recent losses encouraged speculations that Lithuanian coach Kestutis Kemzura is no longer needed.
According to Spanish media, Pepu Hernandez was contacted by Khimi but negotiations have not progressed very far yet.
Hernandez's biggest success came in 2006 when he lead Spain national team to the world champions title in Japan. If the move comes true, he will join Spanish international Jorge Garbajosa.
