Rostov pitch 'closed' a week after Man Utd complaints

Rostov pitch

A week after Jose Mourinho criticised their pitch, the Russian Premier League has “banned” FC Rostov from hosting league games due to “shortfalls” in the playing surface.

Manchester United drew 1-1 at the Olimp-2 Stadium in their Europa League last-16 first-leg tie last Thursday.

“It’s hard for me to believe we are going to play on that field, if you can call it a field,” Mourinho had said.
