Tomas only took charge of the club in the summer but had gotten off to a good start, with the 1-0 loss to Petrocub being their only defeat in domestic competitions this season.

However, speaking to the media after the match, the 46-year-old hinted that the defeat was in fact due to the team being distracted by Thursday’s trip to Old Trafford.

Tomas even hinted that it was his fault and took the blame for the loss himself before quitting his role.

He said: “It seems like the players were thinking about the game in Manchester, there was no concentration. That’s my mistake.

It remains to be seen whether Sheriff will have a new manager in place before they travel to Manchester this week in the penultimate game of their Europa League group stage campaign.

As things stand, Sheriff sit third in Group E, with United in second place and capable of guaranteeing progress to the next round if they avoid defeat to the Moldovan side.
