Amkar Perm's Football Coach Fired for Disappointing Results

"We came to a unanimous decision that we would terminate Slaboljub Muslin's contract because he was not getting the results that were needed this season," Amkar said on their website.

The 61-year-old Muslin, who previously coached French club Girondins Bordeaux and Red Star Belgrade, took charge of Amkar before the start of this season. They have collected 12 points from 16 matches and are just one place above the relegation zone.
