Hristo Stoichkov will not continue in his role as an advisor with Rostov, with the exact reason for his departure unclear.

According to the Russian outfit’s general director, Yury Belous, the decision was made by the club.

“Stoichkov’s contract expired on December 1 and we decided not to renew it,” Belous told Sport-Express.

“Why? We had a problem communicating and collaborating closely, as Hristo was abroad for most of the time.”

However, agent Mircea Dimitrov intimated that Stoichkov walked away, after becoming increasingly frustrated with Rostov’s restrictive financial budget.

“The contract was suspended due to the fact that Rostov simply can’t afford to fulfil all Stoichkov’s ideas,” Dimitrov told Sovetsky Sport.

“He wanted to introduce the latest (training) methods (and) this requires funds.”

“Meanwhile, Rostov’s main task for today is to avoid relegation from the Premier League.”

“Stoichkov doesn’t want to wait until the end of March, when it will be known if the club will remain in the top division.”

Stoichkov made his name as a player with Barcelona in the Early 1990s, and has since managed the Bulgarian national team, Spanish club Celta Vigo and South African outfit Mamelodi Sundowns.
