Bulgaria coach Dzhambazki faces heavy punishment for attacking referees

first_imgBulgaria coach Atanas Dzhambazki is facing severe punishment after attacking two match referees at the end of his team Kariana Edren’s match versus Strumska Slava in the second division fixture on Saturday.He lost his temper after Kariana Edren conceded a late 90th minute goal and lost the match 1-2 at home. Dzhambazki invaded the pitch immediately after the goal was scored and marched straight towards the referee Ivaylo Nenkov.The assistant referee Georgi Velikov tried to defend the referee by standing in front of him. But, things took and ugly turn and Velikov was punched on the face twice and then hit in the chest by Dzhambazki.The Bulgarian Football Union (BFU) will discuss the incident early next week after watching video footage, officials said.The 49-year-old Dzhambazki, who previously coached several first division teams including Slavia Sofia and Montana, was escorted off the pitch by two policemen. The referee blew the final whistle shortly after the incident.Dzhambazki and his club declined to comment.A number of officials, including UEFA referees, have been attacked in Bulgaria in recent years during which the domestic championship has been marred by widespread accusations of corruption.The BFU and referees in the Black Sea state are facing widespread criticism from clubs, media and fans for allegedly favouring certain teams, including Ludogorets, who won the title seven times in a row after clinching their maiden top flight promotion in 2011.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more
