MOSCOW, May 6 (RIA Novosti)
Dynamo Moscow coach Sergei Silkin has dropped joint top scorer Igor Semshov and captain Andriy Voronin from the squad for a crucial Russian Premier League tie with capital city rivals Lokomotiv amid reported feuds with both players.
Anything but a win for Dynamo dramatically reduces their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League.
On Wednesday, midfielder Semshov claimed the team were “ashamed” that coach Sergei Silkin opted to “park the bus” in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Spartak, before issuing an extensive apology on Friday.
Voronin, a former Liverpool striker, both played for the Dynamo reserves team Saturday, the second reserve game in a row for Voronin, who has started just one of Dynamo’s last seven games and last scored in October.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
