Bal era bursts at Vorskla

FC Vorskla Poltava have parted company with coach Andriy Bal after a slow start to the season.

Ukrainian Premier League side FC Vorskla Poltava have parted company with coach Andriy Bal after a disappointing start to the season.

Heavy defeat
Vorskla accepted Bal's resignation following Sunday's 4-0 defeat at Arsenal Kyiv, a result which left the club with one win from their opening six games. The Vorskla management had stated that only a top-four position would suffice this season, and that anything less would affect Bal's position at the club. Bal's coaching staff have resigned in support of the trainer.
