I personally see a sad future for football and volleyball in Pazardzhik. I don’t know if these guys (the winner of the election race Petar Kulenski and his team, b.r.) will allocate funds for sports. I don’t know if they will find sponsors. I can not say anything.” This was stated by the previous mayor of Pazardzhik municipality in response to journalists. Todor Popov at a briefing after losing the run-off in the local elections.
“I don’t want to be a bad prophet, but the situation especially in sports, and especially in volleyball and football, will be quite complicated. I’m afraid these two projects won’t get the traction they need – at least from what I’ve heard so far from these guys on the subject. If it is different – it will be a surprise… Yes, some of the factors in football and volleyball have a personal commitment with me, but in my capacity as mayor, not in my capacity as Todor Popov. Therefore, I assume that the presidents of clubs will have a meeting with the new mayor after he is sworn in and Mr. Kulenski will make decisions.
From Monday, the new leadership is responsible for everything that happens in our city and in the villages”, emphasized Popov, who previously accepted the loss philosophically and wished success to the winner of the race, which we wrote about HERE.
