Chief Mihailov Resigns been President After Racism scandal



Borislav Mihailov the President of Burgarian football Union resign from his role as the president

He resign due to the wake of the scandal that has engulfed the national team following their 6-0 defeat to England.

Play had to be stopped twice in the first half owing to racist chants coming from the home terraces during the Euro 2020 qualifier.

The first break prompted an appeal over the stadium's public address system urging fans to refrain from racist behaviour, in line with UEFA protocols.

Several spectators left the stadium during a second, more prolonged, stoppage shortly before half-time.

A statement released by the FA read: "Today the Bulgarian FA president Borislav Mihailov has resigned from his position – his letter of resignation will be presented to the members of the FA’s Executive Committee at this Friday’s meeting.

"After many years spent in the post and with his many contacts at a high international level, Mr. Mihailov expresses his firm readiness to continue helping in the development of Bulgarian football in every possible way."

Earlier on Tuesday, Mihailov faced calls from the country's Prime Minister to step down from his post.
