Tired Tetradze quits Anzhi

MOSCOW - Former AS Roma defender Omari Tetradze has quit as coach of Russian Premier League newcomers Anzhi Makhachkala just one game into the season.

"I'm just too tired mentally, I miss my wife and my daughter," the 40-year-old Tetradze told local media, referring to the constant travelling and the pre-season training camps Russian teams go through.

Anzhi started the season with a 0-0 home draw against Spartak Nalchik last Saturday.

Former Russia international Tetradze, who also played in Italy, Greece and Georgia, guided Anzhi last season into the top flight for the first time since 2002.
