Spanish Alcorcón broke Mallorca’s winning streak in a tense game that ended in a 1-1 draw.

      Valery Karpin's team stopped short of winning its sixth consecutive match.

      Earlier, Russia-IC reported that the Russian coach’s fate was up in the air after seven rounds where Mallorca managed to get just two points after two draws and five lost games.

      The club’s board of directors decided to sack Karpin due to the side’s dismal performance but it stunned its supporters and opponents by winning all the succeeding games.

      Valery Karpin moved to Spain in August 2014 after he had been fired from Spartak Moscow.

      After several seasons in Moscow, the long-standing coach was fired after two losses in matches against Terek Grozny in the Premier League and Tosno Leningrad Region, a club from the second division, in the Russian Cup.

      Coming sixth in the previous season of the Russian Premier League, Spartak Moscow has now ambitious goals to get back into the top three and the European club tournaments, dreams buoyed up by the signing of Roman Shirokov from Zenit and a newly built stadium, Otkritie Arena.

      The team’s owner, Leonid Fedun, complained the title was floating away despite the fact that Karpin had all he had wanted.

      Murat Yakin replaced Karpin as the new coach.
