Finnish side FC Haka have dismissed Olli Huttunen after 32 years at the club as a player and then coach, with experienced midfielder Sami Ristilä coming in as his replacement.
The 49-year-old former goalkeeper, capped 60 times by Finland, played his first competitive game for Haka in 1978 and went on to make 431 top-flight appearances before retiring in 1995. He immediately moved on to the club's coaching staff, as an assistant, taking sole command before the 2002 season and leading the Valkeakoski side to a league title and two Finnish Cups. Huttunen is also part of the Finnish national team's coaching staff. His replacement, the 35-year-old Ristilä, is in his third spell as a player with Haka.
