Dan Petrescu: Staying put in Russia

The former Chelsea defender was strongly linked with a return to London in a management capacity after Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace and Fulham parted company with their coaches.

The two clubs subsequently looked elsewhere - to Tony Pulis and Rene Meulensteen respectively - and Petrescu, who joined Dinamo in August 2012 on a three-year deal, has no intention of leaving his current job.

In comments reported by Dolce Sport, Petrescu is quoted as saying: "Offers have been made and will be. We'll see what is going to happen in the future.

"We had some discussions in England but I could not get there.

"I have a year-and-a-half on my contract with Dinamo Moscow. I've said it before and I repeat - I do not want to leave until either my contract expires or Dinamo fire me.

"If I want to stay here, it means I feel good here."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
