Ex-Barça: Laudrup dismissed by Spartak Moscow

Former Barcelona player Michael Laudrup (44) has been dismissed yesterday as manager of Spartak Moscow, the club he joined in September last year (read more here).

A statement on the official website of the Russian club reads as follows: "Michael Laudrup has been dismissed as FC Spartak Moscow coach on April 15 night due to unsatisfactory performance and poor results.

Michael Laudrup’s discharge has been initiated by General Director Valery Karpin. This suggestion found approval of the board of directors. Erik Larsen, assistant to Michael Laudrup, has also been dismissed from his duties."

Arriving from Italian club Juventus in the summer of 1989, Laudrup played five seasons for Barcelona. In a controversial move, the attacking midfielder joined Real Madrid in 1994.

With Barcelona, Michael Laudrup won four Spanish leagues in 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1994, one Spanish cup in 1990, two Spanish super cups in 1991 and 1992, one Champions League in 1992 and one European super cup in 1992.
