Ruud Gullit given hilarious public ultimatum by Terek Grozny: win next game or be sacked
Ruud Gullit has been told to win his next game in charge of Chechen side Terek Grozny of face the chop.
The ultimatum was issued in a press statement on the club’s official website, which outlined that the club were not happy with Gullit’s management, his party lifestyle and his general failure to take advantage of the fortuitous situation in which he finds himself.
Sounding like a cross between the world’s most unprofessional press release, an HR manager’s worst nightmare and the cheapest tourism brochure in history, the hilarious statement reads: “Today, we must acknowledge that Gullit has not satisifed the expectations of the club’s board.
“Gullit’s actions at the helm of the team during this half year shows that he has no basic understanding of his players or his line-up.
“Gullit has to know he has not been invited to spend his time at nightclubs, but rather to work at the football club and, moreover, get a result. Yes, we do not have drug abuse or indecent nightlife institutions, which are aplenty in Holland and Europe.
“With regard to alcohol, Ruud has forgotten that Chechnya is a subject of the Russian Federation, and alcohol is sold in special licensed stores. But in Grozny there are all the conditions for people with a healthy lifestyle.
“There are modern cinemas, ice palaces, parks. The head of the Republic Ramzan Kadyrov has created excellent conditions for the coaching staff and players.
“In addition to good bonuses and salaries, the club president provides just gifts for a good game and pays double or triple bonuses.
“For today, head of the republic Ramzan Kadyrov is extremely disappointed with Ruud Gullit’s approach to his duties, as instead of working with his sleeves rolled up, considering the team’s tournament position, he has bars and discos on his mind.
“Considering the above, Ramzan Kadyrov sets the task for Ruud Gullit to get three points from the next away game in Perm. Otherwise, Gullit will be dismissed from the head coach position.”
Back to the indecent nightspots of Holland for Ruud, by the sound of it.
