Ruud Gullit sacked by Terek Grozny
Tuesday 14 June 2011
Chechnya's Kremlin-backed strongman said he fired Terek Grozny coach Ruud Gullit today after the team lost a match billed as his last chance to prove he cared more for their poor league position than bars.
The Dutch Former World Player of the Year, who signed on at the Chechen team at the start of the year, was told on the Russian Premier League club's website (www.fc-terek.ru) that he would be fired if they did not win on Tuesday at Amkar Perm.
After the loss due to an own goal in the dying seconds of the match, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who is also the president of Terek, said: "Gullit will no longer train Terek.
"He was unable to prove himself as a trainer. Under his command over this season, the team managed only poor results in every game," Kadyrov told the Interfax news agency.
