SOFIA – The Bulgarian Football Union (BFU) has suspended three referees for poor officiating in domestic league matches, local media reported on Monday.
Krasimir Popov, Dimitar Manolov and Ivan Mihaylov have been taken off the roster for an unspecified period, the BFU’s refereeing commission said, less than a week before the begin of the new Bulgarian league season.
“It’s true that the three referees have been taken off the list,” Nikolay Dzhuganski, who was appointed as the commission’s chief last week, was quoted as saying by the local media.
“There are several reasons (for their suspension) with poor refereeing and lack of adequate reports in some matches among them,” added Dzhuganski.
Bulgarian refereeing has come in for criticism in recent years and Litex Lovech coach Hristo Stoichkov has held the country’s soccer authorities responsible for that. (Reporting by Angel Krasimirov; editing by Amlan Chakraborty)
