RUS M: Verbov no longer head coach of Zenit-Kazan

This was expected considering the worst season Zenit had this year. From the absolute domination at the national and international level, they became average team. If Alekno comes back, Mikhaylov goes back to the opposite spot, and they find one great outside hitter they might be able to form great team again. Reply
