Ramos sacked after 6 weeks at CSKA Moscow
Moscow: Spaniard Juande Ramos was sacked as CSKA Moscow coach Monday following Sunday`s 3-1 defeat by Russian Premier League rivals FK Moscow, the club said.
"As of today the contract of Juande Ramos was terminated by mutual consent," CSKA said on their website.
The former Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur manager lasted only six weeks at the army club after replacing Brazilian Zico, who was fired following a string of poor results in September.
Former FK Moscow and Krylya Sovietov Samara coach Leonid Slutsky, 38, has taken over from Ramos on a three-year contract, CSKA president Yevgeny Giner said.
Giner hired the experienced Spaniard, who won back-to-back UEFA Cups with Sevilla in 2006-07, to lead them to the Champions League knockout round for the first time.
His arrival paid immediate dividends, with 3-0 league wins over Samara and Dynamo Moscow, but soon after CSKA were back to their usual stuttering form both domestically and in Europe.
