It has been quite a eventful day for Estonian football.
In the very very early morning, newspaper recognized journalist Dannar Leitmaa published in Eesti Ekspress some kind of conspiracy theory (based on some inside speculations from person around Estonia NT). There came out/speculated that the main reason why there has been tensions inside team, is the way, how Pehrsson treated legendary goalkeeper Sergei Pareiko (who is nationally russian). After Pehrsson decided to drop Pareiko from team, other russianestonians (Vassiljev, Dmitrijev, Kruglov) started some kind of revenge or sth against Pehrsson, playing without desire. Ofcourse it is impossible to say, if it is true.
Leitmaa also claimed, that the reason, why Ojamaa has been ignored by Pehrsson, is his difficult character and selfishness. Apparently he and former captain Raio Piiroja almost fought with eachother. Ojamaa is very unpopular among other players and was hated in Legia Warswawa. And when Legia wanted to sign Flora player Maksim Gussev in january, club president put a veto on it, claiming that Legia won't sign never another Estonian player
In 10.00 it became official, that Magnus Pehrsson has been sacked as NT manager.
In 12:00, Estonian FA confirmed Martin Reim (record international with 157 caps) as new manager. Mart Poom (120 caps) and Janno Kivisild continues as goalkeeper or assistant coach. New member in coaching staff is Andres Oper (all time top scorer, 134 caps and 38 goals).
