Former Manchester United assistant coach Rene Meulensteen has lasted barely a fortnight in charge of Anzhi.

Meulensteen has been SACKED after a slow start to the Russian Premier League season.

Anzhi collected just two points from their opening four games and their board chairman Konstantin Remchukov announced Meulensteen's dismissal on Twitter.

The Dutchman has been immediately replaced by Gadzhi Gadzhiev, his third spell in charge of Anzhi.
