Bosses at Russian Premier League club Akhmat Grozny were so angry with their side’s performance in their 3-1 defeat by Nizhny Novgorod that they sacked coach Andrey Talalayev at half-time, reports “Championat”.
The hosts missed a penalty in the 16th minute through Gamid Agalarov.
Timur Suleymanov gave Novgorod the lead just six minutes later and that was reason enough for Talalayev to be dismissed. The coach reportedly left the stadium during halftime.
Akhmat equalized in the 59th minute through Yuriy Zhuravliev, but the visitors took the lead again through Suleymanov and Kiril Gotsuk confirmed the win for the visitors in the 64th minute.
With this result, Novgorod overtook Akhmat in eighth position in the standings after 9 rounds.
