The general director of Grozny “Akhmat” Akhmed Aidamirov will not be the boss of the Russian Premier League (RPL). This was reported to RBC Sport by a source from the RPL and an interlocutor familiar with the situation.
“This option was discussed, but the bid was rejected by the Russian football leadership,” an RPL source said. An interlocutor familiar with the situation confirmed this information.
RBC Sport has turned to RPL and Aidamirov for comment.
On the evening of May 8, Chempionat, citing two sources familiar with the situation, said that Ashot Khachaturyants would voluntarily step down as head of the Russian Premier League at the end of the season. “Due to the current situation, Khachaturyants do not see a future in his role as leader of the RPL,” said one of the sources. The second said that with a high degree of probability Khachaturyants will continue to participate in Russian arbitration, because for him this is a fundamental point.
RB Sport later reported that if Khachaturyants stepped down as RPL president, a large group of clubs would nominate Aidamirov for this position. Akhmat CEO, commenting on this information, told RIA Novosti: “We have the president of the league, Ashot Khachaturyants, but we have no replacements.”
