Ruslan Rotan, the acting head coach of the Ukrainian national football team, who is also the coach of Oleksandriya, received a red card in a 1-1 Premier League (UPL) match against Dnipro-1. The incident took place in the first half.


In the 20th minute, Danil Skorko brought down Oleksandr Nazarenko in the penalty area. The head referee Yaroslav Kozyk gave a penalty, which caused Rotan's indignation. The coach went to the Dnipro-1 substitutes' bench to settle the matter, where he was pushed by the visitors' Brazilian legionnaire Beglou.


The referee immediately sent off both Ruslan Rotan and Dnipro administrator Vadym Komardin for unsportsmanlike behaviour.


Oleksandriya was managed by Rotan's assistant Serhiy Kravchenko for the rest of the game. The coach himself watched the match from the stands of the stadium in Uzhhorod.

As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the Ukrainian national team led by Ruslan Rotan lost to England without a chance in the opening match of the Euro 2024 qualifying tournament.
