Sofia, Oct 15 (IANS) The Bulgarian Prime Minister on Tuesday asked the head of the country’s football association to step down after England players were racially abused during an European qualifier.

“I call on Borislav Mihaylov to immediately resign as president of the Bulgarian Football Union,” Prime Minister Boyko Borissov was quoted as saying by the BBC.

“After yesterday’s shameful loss of the Bulgarian national team and given the bad results of our football, I ordered to end any relationship with BFU, including financial, until the withdrawal of Borislav Mihaylov from the post.”

The match was won by England 6-0 but had to be stopped twice because of racist behaviour by home fans.

England forward Raheem Sterling tweeted to describe the call for Mihaylov to resign as a “good move”.
