Posted on | September 8, 2008 | No Comments

Shakhtar has a disastrious start of the season with only 7 points from 7 matches and it looks like there are no chances for the title this year.



Shakhtar are occupying the 11th place at 11 points from Metalurh Donetsk and 9 from rivals Dynamo KievPremier League winners for three of the past four years, Shakhtar won only 1 game and made 4 draws.
The only consolation until now is the qualifying into the Champions League Group phase where they will meet Barcelona, Sporting and Basel.
FC Shakhtar Donetsk coach, Mircea Lucescu hopes that the team will recover from this bad form and will battle again for the title.
Lucescu is demanding more concentration from his players and also hopes that there will not be other injury problems.
There are speculations that Rinat Ahmetov is allready searching for a replacement of Lucescu.
If the victories will come there are chances for Lucescu to stay, but we have to wait and see.
