Valery Karpin, 45, has overseen a U-turn in Spain’s Mallorca fate just as the club’s directors were ready to kick him out.
Mallorca caught second breath by celebrating its fourth consecutive win in Segunda, Spain’s second league. Battered by critics after a dismal start, it has now climbed to 12th place, with 14 points.
The team lost to Valladolid (1:2), Leganés (1:3), Recreativo (1:2), Osasuna (4:6) and Real Zaragoza  (0:2), drew against Las Palmas (1:1) and Barcelona B (2:2), and then went on to win Alavés (2:0), Llagostera (4:1), Sabadell (1:0) and now Lugo.
7,500 spectators enjoyed a thrilling game where Karpin’s players proved stronger 2-1.
RCD Mallorca: Cabrero, Company, Bigas, Kasim, Gulan, Joao, Bustos, Arana (Markovic, min 76), Pereira (Martí, min 84), Marco Asensio, Scepovic (Fofo, min 90).
Karpin is obviously out of the danger zone, praising his team’s concentration and ambition to win, as reported by the club’s official website.
The Russian sports media have been closely watching Karpin’s performance abroad.
Earlier, Russia-IC reported that the board of directors had decided to sack Valery Karpin due to the side’s dismal performance. In seven rounds Mallorca has managed to get just two points after two draws and five lost 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.

Murat Yakin replaced Karpin as the new coach.
