Because all the top teams suck this year,especialy Zenit who is find it hard even to get the third place.

Rubin budget is 30 million dollars.

Milošević winner gives Rubin the Russian title



FC Rubin Kazan have won their first Russian Premier-Liga title after substitute Savo Milošević's last-gasp strike clinched a 2-1 win against FC Saturn Moskovskaya Oblast.

CSKA slip
PFC CSKA Moskva's 1-0 home loss to FC Spartak Moskva on Saturday left Rubin knowing that victory would take them ten points clear with three games remaining. Rubin striker Aleksandr Bukharov had the first effort on goal in the first half but was denied by goalkeeper Antonin Kinski and visiting custodian Sergei Ryzhikov saved from Leonid Kovel at the other end of the pitch.

Championship secured
Milošević came on after the interval and with 14 minutes to go Rubin were in front though Roman Adamov but Petr Nemov quickly equalised by turning in Marko Topić's cross. However, in the final minute Milošević beat Kinski to make Rubin only the third post-Soviet Russian title-winners from outside Moscow and they can look forward to a UEFA Champions League debut in 2009/10.

Rubin bring up half-century with title triumph


FC Rubin Kazan celebrated their 50th anniversary in style on Sunday by winning a first Russian Premier-Liga title.

'Long road'
"It has been a long road to this success," said Kurban Berdyev, their coach of the last seven years, after Savo Milošević's last-gasp goal secured the deciding 2-1 victory at FC Saturn Moskovskaya Oblast. It lifted Rubin ten points clear of second-placed PFC CSKA Moskva with three games to play – a huge achievement for a team who made their top-flight debut in 2003 and had not previously improved on their third position that year.

Budget boosted
Tenth in 2007, just three points off the relegation zone, Rubin were not among the favourites during the close season, with their sole big signing being 32-year-old attacking midfielder Sergei Semak. Yet as the deadline approached, Rubin added experience via the likes Milošević and Sergiy Rebrov, plus Turkey playmaker Gökdeniz Karadeniz, and with a reported €40m budget provided by leading Tatarstan-based firms, suddenly the Kazan side were contenders.

Season of three phases
Seven matches into the campaign they had yet to drop a point. Trouble came with a 3-0 home loss to FC Spartak Moskva on 2 May, and when – after winning 2-1 at FC Moskva four days later – they were beaten 2-0 at FC Spartak Nalchik before registering six successive draws. However, Rubin returned to winning ways in early August with a Russian Cup defeat of FC Smena Komsomolsk, followed up by a spectacular 4-1 triumph at titleholders FC Zenit St. Petersburg. That result heralded a championship-winning run yielding 30 points from eleven games, as well as progress to the cup quarter-finals at FC Amkar Perm's expense.

'Deserved'
Berdyev said of the summer slump. "The fact we were leading the league was a bit too much for the boys. Away to Nalchik it was clear some players started to think they were stars." However, Rubin survived the blip and not even CSKA's seven-match winning streak could block their route to the 2009/10 UEFA Champions League. Semak, captain of club and country who had also won the league with CSKA, said: "This season we have produced the most consistent football in Russia and deserved to be champions."

Berdyev's role

The spotlight is a more unusual place for Berdyev, a retiring 56-year-old who has had Rubin playing efficient football, notably from set-pieces. He knows, though, that next autumn's challenge will demand a fresh approach. "To be successful in the Champions League we need to strengthen two or three positions," said Berdyev. 'We need good centre-forwards, holding midfielders, a winger and a playmaker. I am sure some day we will cause a surprise in Europe too."
