Gadzhi Gadzhiev has been dismissed as coach of FC Saturn Moskovskaya Oblast after a dire run of results saw them knocked out of two competitions.
A 3-0 defeat at VfB Stuttgart ended Saturn's UEFA Intertoto Cup campaign, and they then lost successive Russian Premier-Liga fixtures before being knocked out of the last 16 of the Russian Cup by FC Volga Ulyanovsk. Gadzhiev and his assistant Boris Ingnatiev have both been dismissed, with Dmitri Galyamin named as his temporary replacement. "The dismissal of a coach is a common event nowadays," sighed Gadzhiev. "Last season we finished fifth and that was the best result in Saturn's history. We could have achieved more with this team in the future, but they did not give me opportunity to do that."
