European soccer’s governing body says it fined Krasnodar 50,000 euros ($56,100) because de-facto head coach Murad Musayev has spent the last year working without the right license.
UEFA says it ordered Musayev not to perform “any function of a head coach, as well as of any coaching staff, at UEFA competition matches,” and banned him from the dugout.

Musayev took over as Krasnodar’s head coach in April 2018, but his lack of a UEFA Pro license meant he’s been listed as a “senior coach” with other staff named as head coach, at least on paper. However, Musayev is widely seen as the one in charge during games.
