The Russian Premier League club Anzhi Makhachkala have sacked coach Yuri Krasnozhan after little more than a month in the job, opening up the possibility that Fabio Capello, who left his England job last week, could take over.

"The club made a decision to part company with the head coach," the outfit, bankrolled by billionaire Suleiman Kerimov, said. "Both sides have agreed not to discuss the reasons." Local media have made Capello the favourite to take over. The Italian visited Moscow at the weekend to negotiate a deal with Anzhi.
