Russia Update

March 13, 2011

Further to my blog post on the Caucasian clubs and the first weekend of the Russian Premier League, it was an unspectacular start for the two clubs. Ruud Gullit’s first taste of Chechen football ended in defeat with the score Terek Grozny 0-1 Zenit St. Petersburg. Over in Dagestan it was 0-0 between Anzhi Makhachkala and FK Krasnodar, brief highlights below. My predicted soap opera unfolding could have taken an interesting twist already. In a series of tweets from Belgian football insider John Chapman it appears that Mbark Boussafa’s move to Terek has fallen through due to what were deemed to be unreasonable demands. His actual destination now looks like being Anzhi instead. See below.
