Former Bulgarian FA President reappoints himself

A concerning story emanating from Bulgaria has seen the nation’s former FA President ‘reappoint’ himself.

Borislav Mihaylov stepped down after what was described by the UK Police Football Unit’s Chief Superintendent Steve Graham as ‘quite simply the worst racist behaviour’ 18 months ago, on the part of fans in Sofia, as England faced Bulgaria.

Mihaylov claims that he has ‘changed a lot’ since stepping down, and will therefore run in the 2022 elections.

“I have the full support of the [Bulgarian] FA’s Exec Committee,” he said. “I have changed a lot over the past one-and-a-half years. There will be fresh elections in 2022.”

Berbatov to challenge

The man who will stand against him is former Spurs and Man United striker Dimitar Berbatov.

The 7-time Bulgarian footballer of the year announced his intentions the day before Mihaylov’s return was revealed.

‘Berba’ reacted by suggesting that his competitor’s campaign has caused panic and fear.

“Only a day after I announced my intention to run for president, resignations have been withdrawn… I can feel [certain people] are afraid and panicking.

“Legally, they might have the right to do that, however, morally… But I saw it coming. I won’t give up on my plans!”

Martin & Stiliyan Petrov to support Berbatov

Many supporters of Berbatov feel that, despite his inexperience, he would have to prove an upgrade on what has come before.

‘There is no way to know if #Berbatov he would be as good a leader as a footballer, but the current leadership of the Bulgarian Football Union has done enough to make any other candidacy seem a more adequate solution to the problems in domestic football,’ wrote Bulgarian-based journalist Moni Georgiev.

In the above image, both Stiliyan Petrov and Martin Petrov are pictured. The pair will partner with Berbatov in his push for presidency.

Exciting times could well be ahead for Bulgarian football, should Berbatov prove victorious.
