Revolt forces Shovkovsky out as Kiev captain

KIEV, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Dynamo Kiev skipper Oleksander Shovkovsky has paid the price of failure by his club in the Champions League.

Ukrainian media also reported internal disagreements at Shakhtar Donetsk, with captain Anatoly Tymoshchuk uneasy with at least one of his team mates although a spokesman for the skipper denied the claims.

Shakhtar have gained only two points from four Champions League Group D matches while Dynamo have lost all four games in Group E.

Shovkovsky was sacked as skipper by Dynamo president Ihor Surkis after he failed to turn up to watch the 3-0 home defeat by Olympique Lyon two weeks ago.

He was suspended for that match after being sent off in the 5-1 defeat at Real Madrid in September.

Shovkovsky told Dynamo's Web site he watched the Lyon game at a bar and said Surkis had no right to remove him from the captaincy.

'It is the team who chose me as captain and if it is to be decided I am no longer to have this honour, the players should decide that at a meeting,' he said.

Tymoshchuk, who according to media reports has ambitions to move to a stronger European club, was banned for this week's 2-2 draw with Valencia after receiving two yellow cards in earlier games.

He was replaced as skipper by Brazilian midfielder Matuzalem.

Coach Mircea Lucescu said in August that he supported Tymoshchuk's ambitions to join a stronger club but also needed an acceptable bid before he could allow him to go.

Lucescu rejected an offer of four million euros ($5.11 million) from Scottish champions Celtic, saying he wanted at least 10 million.

Last month, Lucescu described Matuzalem as the only player to perform to his standards in last month's 2-0 defeat at Valencia.

The popular Web site quoted Tymoshchuk as saying Matuzalem was not worthy of the captaincy.

Tymoschuk's spokesman Vitaly Yurchenko denied the player had made the comment and said team morale was high ahead of Monday's Premier League match with Dynamo Kiev.

'His relationship with the coach is workmanlike as it always has been,' said Yurchenko.

'The coach has no complaints. As to the team, relations are quite friendly, there are no conflicts.'

Although the Champions League hopes of the two Ukrainian teams are over, Dynamo and Shakhtar could yet gain a UEFA Cup spot by finishing third in their groups.
