MOSCOW, September 2 (RIA Novosti)
Dynamo Moscow coach Dan Petrescu snubbed the post-match news conference after his side suffered a shock 2-1 home defeat to his former club FC Kuban on Sunday.
It was Dynamo's sixth defeat in seven league games this season, leaving the club at the very bottom of the Russian Premier League table.
Ex-Chelsea right-back Petrescu was emotional during the whole match and stormed out of the dug-out after an injury-time winner by Kuban’s Aras Ozbiliz.
"Petrescu doesn’t feel well," Dynamo spokesman Konstantin Alexeev said after the match.
The match Petrescu’s first league game from the dugout as Dynamo coach after serving out a six-match touchline ban.
The Romanian manager took charge of the long-suffering side on August 17, with Dynamo completing only one win so far under his reign.

The growing outright rivalry between the United States and China gives Russia more foreign policy weight, enabling it to assume the role of a balancer. So far it has been doing so rather skillfully. Today it may participate in a joint naval exercise with China that Beijing positions as outwardly anti-American. But tomorrow it can team up with the naval forces of the Old World.
