Kiev - Brown Ideye’s manager, Oleg Blokhin has resigned his position as coach of Dynamo Kiev.
The former Ukraine coach resigned from his job in charge of Kiev following a 2-0 loss to bitter rival Shakhtar Donetsk in the domestic league.
The 61-year-old former Dynamo and Soviet striker stepped down after the game late Wednesday, leaving the club seven points behind league leader Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk after 18 months at the helm.
Dynamo president Igor Surkis accepted his resignation "for the club's poor results."
Following his appointment in September 2012, Blokhin briefly continued to coach the national team. But a month later he underwent a minimally invasive heart operation and quit the Ukraine job. He led the national team to the 2006 World Cup quarterfinals, the farthest any post-Soviet team has advanced in the tournament.
Ideye and another Nigerian, Haruna Lukman Kiev will be handed another manager in the coming days.
