Bulgaria manager quits after racist abuse at England game

This post was originally published on this site

Bulgaria’s manager has resigned after a Euro 2020 qualifier had to be paused twice due to racist abuse directed at England players.

Sky Sports News said Krasimir Balakov resigned on Friday despite an interview with the outlet after the game on Monday in which he said he did not hear the abuse and would only apologise if European football governing body UEFA proved there had been discriminatory abuse.

The match in the capital, Sofia, was temporarily halted twice after England players were subjected to monkey chants and Nazi salutes by home fans.
