FIDE President Arkady Dvorkovich appointed IM Sami Khader as the new Chairman of the FIDE Trainer’s Commission. Only a few days ago, a famous grandmaster and FIDE Senior Trainer who coached Olympiad 2022 Champions, Ivan Sokolov announced he will no longer work at seminars or any actions with FIDE. Peter Heine Nielsen connects the dots between Ivan Sokolov’s announcement and the appointment of Khader as the FIDE TRG Chairman: “Ivan Sokolov announces he will never work with FIDE again. Sami Khader is announced shortly after as new head of the TRG. Lets try and connect the dots shall we?” writes Nielsen on his twitter account.
