Russian Premier League club Krasnodar agreed to suspend the contracts of all eight foreign players within 24 hours of Daniel Farke’s resignation.

Krasnodar’s foreign contingent will train now alone in another location. Although no reason has been given, this decision is made in light of Russia’s invasion Ukraine.

Due to the closure of airports in southern Russia, the club was unable to fulfill a league match. Now, there is a mass exodus.

Ex-flipper Remy Cabella from Newcastle United is among the list of stars who were released. He is said to be training with his former side Montpellier in France.

Grzegorz Kraychowiak, a Polish international, has also left the club, despite signing an attractive three-year contract in August.

According to reports, the 32-year old joined his Polish colleagues in boycotting the World Cup semi-final against Russia. Krasnodar was not willing to end his contract.

And Jhon Cordoba, who cost £16.5million from FC Koln, has also been allowed to depart, just six months into his four-year contract.

Sergei Galitsky is a billionaire businessman who backs the Bulls. However, Farke’s departure on Wednesday rocked the Bulls.

After six weeks of not managing a single game since their appointments, the ex-Norwich City boss and his entire coaching team agreed to mutually terminate their contracts.

Farke was dismissed in November by Norwich after the club finished at the bottom on the Premier League table.

“Krasnodar and Daniel Farke terminated the contract by mutual agreement,”You can read the club statement. “Together with the German coach, his assistants Edmund Riemer, Chris Domogalla and Christopher John leave the club.”

Krasnodar is currently sixth in Russia’s Premier League. They are four points behind the European places and have not given any official reason for Farke to leave.

This resignation comes after Lokomotiv Moscow manager Markus Gisdol, 52, resigned with immediate effect on Tuesday. He cited the ongoing conflict in Ukraine for his reasons.

“For me, football coaching is the best job in the world,”Gisdol to German Outlet Bild. “But I cannot pursue my calling in a country whose leader is responsible for a war of aggression in the middle of Europe.

“This is against my values. I have resigned as Lokomotiv Moscow coach immediately.

“I can’t stand on the training ground in Moscow, train the players, demand professionalism and a few kilometers away orders are given that bring great suffering to an entire people. That is my personal decision and I am absolutely convinced of it.”
