The tension in Botev (Vratsa) has risen significantly in recent days. The chairman of the board of the club, Vangel Vangelov, recently had a conversation in the dressing room in a rather loud tone, which startled the players, writes “Tema sport”.
The boss was adamant that if the team continues with the weak performance, the winter will undertake a serious cleaning. Competitors have even been warned that fines or an indefinite suspension of payments could result.
Botev (Vratsa) – Lokomotiv (Sofia) 0:2 (Development of the meeting by minutes)
One goal in each half
The cup of patience has overflowed after the match with Septemvri Sofia for the Bulgarian Cup. Vracani qualified for the 1/8-finals after success with penalties. In regular time, the match ended 3:3, and in overtime – 5:5. Before that, Botev lost 1:2 to Eter at Ivaylo. Tarnovtsi are a direct competitor in the battle for survival. On October 21, Vracani were beaten 3:5 at home by Botev (Plovdiv). Thus, in the last three games, the team has allowed as many as 12 goals.
Under the leadership of new coach Hristo Yanev, who replaced Daniel Morales, Botev has only one win. It came on his debut – 1:0 over Beroe, who at that time also changed his coach and had serious problems of all kinds, from which the team took advantage. But then things went back to the old way and the team recorded 4 losses and 1 draw in the championship.
All this has led to the questionable increase in tension among Vracani. Among the foreigners, Mori Bamba has already left the club. He did not agree to the terms of his contract. The only three who were not hit by Vangelov’s whirlwind are Brian Perea, Mimchel Tsvetanov and Stefan Velev.
Today, the citizens of Vratsa host Lokomotiv Sofia and the victory is more than mandatory. It was put before the team almost as an ultimatum.
