Murat Yakin is doomed to leave Spartak Moscow after a lackluster performance against 10-men Terek Grozny.

      The red-and-white needed to win to get into Europa League but with just a few weeks left they squandered their chance.

      Terek’s foreign players scored four goals to propel the Chechen team to eighth place, above Kuban and Mordovia and just behind Lokomotiv.

      Spartak is likely to remain 6th, facing a protracted crisis and the pressing need for a new coach.

      Earlier, Russia-IC reported that the Swiss coach was rumoured to be axed after a series of losses to outsiders Arsenal and Rostov.

      Former Swiss player Murat Yakin has come under a lot of fire, failing to catch up with the league’s leaders.

      Earlier, Spartak Moscow lost forward Artiom Dzyuba who is going to move to St Petersburg in six months, according to a new contract he signed with Zenit. The terms of the contract have not been disclosed.

      Roman Shirokov, the new signing expected to shine in Spartak, fell out with the coach and management and was sent on loan to Krasnodar, where he scored a number of important goals and made several assists.

      Having won 12 Soviet championships (second only to Dynamo Kyiv) and 9 of 19 Russian championships they are one of the country's most successful clubs. They have also won the Soviet Cup 10 times and the Russian Cup 3 times. Spartak have also reached the semi-finals of all three European club competitions.
