Ramos Fired From CSKA Moscow
AP , October 26th, 2009 4PM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

CSKA Moscow fired coach Juande Ramos after a 3-1 home defeat to FK Moscow. Ramos, who has also coached Tottenham and Real Madrid within the last year, replaced Zico at the beginning of September. His short reign at the club produced a record of three wins, two losses and a draw. The loss to FK Moscow, however, dropped CSKA Moscow to fifth place in the Russian Premier League.

CSKA has appointed former Krylya Sovietov and FK Moscow coach Leonid Slutsky in Ramos' place. Slutsky quit Krylya on Oct. 9 after a summer game-fixing scandal involving the Samara club. UEFA recently sent a letter to the Russian Football Union requesting it investigate Krylya's match against Chechen team Terek Grozny in June, among other games.

CSKA has only four games left in its domestic league. It sits one point ahead of city rival Lokomotiv Moscow in the race to the league's last qualifying spot for next season's Europa League. This season, CSKA is in the midst of a Champions League campaign. It lies third in Group B, with three points from three games. Manchester United leads the group with nine points, with Wolfsburg in second on four. United hosts CSKA next on Nov. 3.
