Why don’t people resign by not doing their jobs…We stand in solidarity with all the fans who are protesting in all the cities of the country. We are a small town, but our voice must be heard. We cannot tolerate it anymore, that’s why we have come out all the fans from all over the country to take down this criminal organization, whether Berbatov, whether Lacho Tanev, or any other professional who understands , to build stadiums with the help of the state, to have a place for our children to play…”
