CSKA came out with a position after the “Army” scandals during the match with Luboslav Penev’s team.
Here is what the club wrote:
“In connection with what happened at the “Bulgarian Army” stadium on August 29 and the wave of comments on the hot topic, we feel obliged to the public to express CSKA’s position as well. The match against the guests from Bistrica was accompanied by many emotions, understandably – mainly negative, the temper of our fans prevailed. The pain of thousands of Cesek fans was poured into the stadium against those whom those same thousands have sworn by, for whom they have come to love their beloved club, with whom they have wept in pain and happiness together over the years and side by side are faced the enemy. CSKA fans have now unequivocally shown their attitude towards actions they consider treasonous. We cannot control the chanting of more than 6,000 people in such a high-pressure match. We cannot dictate to the hearts of CSKA supporters who to continue to love and whom to deny.
However, we can condemn actions that crossed the line. CSKA as a club has distanced itself from the desecration and attempts to destroy the Walk of Fame and specifically the stars of some of the team’s legends that were scratched, doused with liquids and erased. Yes, we are also hurt by their decisions, but we must not forget that they are all part of the history of the glorious team, which we cannot and must not erase.”
CSKA’s punishment is clear!
