Bulgarian FA president Mihailov resigns due to racist abuse in England clash

The president of the Bulgaria Football Union, Borislav Mihailov, has resigned.

It follows Bulgaria Prime Minister Boyko Borissov calling for him to quit on Tuesday after the racist abuse of England players by home fans in Sofia.

The Euro 2020 qualifier, which England won 6-0, was stopped twice because of racist behavior, which included Nazi salutes and monkey chants.

The BFU said the move “is a consequence of the recent tensions” but did not mention racism in their statement.
