On Thursday, there will be a meeting of the Executive Committee of the BFS, at which the President Borislav Mihailov will probably resign.
Along with him, some of the members of the Executive Committee will also resign, reports Sportal.bg. A congress is expected to be scheduled for February or March next year, at which a new president and Executive Committee will be elected, but the date will be further specified. Mihailov will not run for a new term.
It is not excluded that Mikhail Kasabov will again take the position of acting president of the BFS, as was the case with the previous resignation of Bobi Mihailov in October 2019. Then he submitted it a day after the racist scandal during the match Bulgaria – England (0:6).
There is a high probability that Dimitar Berbatov will be elected to the post.
“The Bulgarian Football Union is extremely saddened and disappointed by what happened in the center of Sofia during the match, but it is categorical that, given all the signals of provocations received by the various state and international institutions, the final decision of UEFA is absolutely justified This was also confirmed by the representatives of the European headquarters who were present at the match – the meeting delegate on duty, the two security officers, as well as the advisor to the UEFA president who was specially sent for the occasion. All of them expressed the opinion that the measures taken and the organization of the hosts made so that the match will be played – because otherwise the sanctions for Bulgarian football, respectively for the Bulgarian state, would be huge”, says an official statement of the BFS.
At the end of the statement, however, it is specified: “Next week, the president of the Bulgarian Football Union will convene an urgent meeting of the Executive Committee in order to schedule a date for next year’s congress.”
