Gisdol’s departure is one of several sporting consequences of the war, with events canceled in Russia and suspensions of their federations by FIFA and the International Olympic Committee, among others.

“I cannot continue my work in a country whose leader is responsible for a war in the middle of Europe,” he said in a statement making his immediate resignation effective.

“That is not my line of values, which is why I have resigned from my position as coach of Lokomotiv Moscow with immediate effect. I cannot be in the training center in Moscow, train the players and demand professionalism while a few kilometers, orders are being given that bring suffering to an entire town,” added the DT.

Lokomotiv Moscow is in seventh place, with 28 points, and 13 behind the leader Zenit.
