Volga Nizhny Novgorod coach, Omari Tetradze added to the dump list in the Russian Premier League
Omari Tetradze has joined the likes of Ruud Gullit, Yuri Krasnozhan and Vladimir Eshtrekov in the sacking list from Volga Nizhny Novgorod.
It is reported that the Russian club has found an immediate replacement in Dmitry Cheryshev to become the successor of Omari Tetradze at Volga.
Omari Mikhailovich Tetradze born 1969 is a Georgian Greek football player who had managed Dynamo Moscow and Anzhi Makhachkala in RPL, A.S Roma from Serie A and most notably Mikhailovich have managed the national team of Russia for ten years (1992-2992).
Mikhailovich who is 41 now had resigned from Anzhi Makhachkala as a head coach only three days after Anzhi promoted to the Russian premier league. Having won the Russian Championship with Anzhi, Mikhailovich was tipped to join Volga. He provided a flying
start to the club by promoting it to the Russian premier league. Since then things started to become worse for the manager as he failed to meet the clubs expectations.
Volga has had impressive start of the season by winning in front of the home crowd against FK Tom Tomsk. However their biggest home victory was against Dynamo Moscow in which they won by 3 goals. Since then Volga has failed to prove its stance by winning
total 4 games in the season and drawing 7 out if the 13 matches played.
Governor at Volga, Oblast Valery Shantsev made the official statement
“Volga has had a successful start in the Premier League, won several games, but then began to lose match after match. The worst things are not the defeats, but rather the characterless game, which depends on the team’s head coach. Last match ended with a
2:4 loss and you could feel it: the team was passive, unable to put up resistance and show team spirit. If there was some resistance, then the coach could be trusted”
The Governor was complaining about the style of play adopted by the foreign coach and bemoans the position of Volga at the league table. The fact that Volga has easily dropped their weapons against FC Krasnodar made the governor on high alert who believed
that Volga did not do necessary to win the game rather than they were not resisting to the defeat.
The analysts have constantly questioned the playing style of Volga by suggesting the quality of football has gradually declined under the manager. The Governor further accused Mikhailovich who failed to develop team spirit among the squad since taking over
as the head coach.
It is further reported that Volga has lined up a Russian coach this time. With Dmitry Cheryshev on top of their wish list, the club is moving in the right direction. Cheryshev has managed the Russian national team for four years and the former Dynamo Moscow
striker has been recently working as a sporting director in the Russian first division club, Sibir Novosibirsk.
