Skorovich parts ways with MFK Sinara Ekaterinburg

Sergei Skorovich and MFK Sinara Ekaterinburg have mutually agreed to part ways, leaving the coach able to put his focus entirely on his duties with the Russian team.

"I offered Sergei Skorovich the chance to leave our team due to his frequent departures with the national side and poor results with the club," Sinara president Grigori Ivanov said, UEFA.com reports. "It's hard to fight on two fronts and at the same time Russia face two important tournaments: UEFA Futsal EURO 2012 and the FIFA Futsal World Cup.

"Now Skorovich has the opportunity to fully prepare for these significant competitions without getting distracted by other things. Sinara will now be guided by coach Andrei Yagoda and Igor Putilov."

Skorovich won the Russian Cup in his first two seasons at Sinara and Ekaterinburg took home the UEFA Futsal Cup in 2008. Since then, Skorovich added the role of Russian coach to his work with the club, straining his availability.
