CAS allowed Sardar Azmoun to remain at Rostov

July 23, 2016 - 22:47

Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has accepted the appeal by Sardar Azmoun’s lawyer against the Russian club Rubin Kazan claim.

Azmoun, who spent 2015-16 season at Rostov on loan from Rubin Kazan, was supposed to return to Tatars at the end of the season; however Rostov triggered the buyout clause in Azmoun's contract. Rubin denied this clause and claimed Sardar is the player of the team but Azmoun’s lawyer appealed the case to CAS.
Finally CAS ruled in favor of Azmoun and he is now included in Rostov's UEFA Champions League third qualifying round squad for the game against Anderlecht on Tuesday.
Azmoun finished seventh in 2015-16 Russian Premier League top scorer list scoring nine goals in 23 appearances, despite getting half as much playing time as some other top scorers.
He was also voted as the fifth most valuable player of the league, narrowly behind players such as Fyodor Smolov, Moussa Doumbia, and Brazilian superstar Hulk.
