Coach of Bulgaria Top Football Club CSKA Resigns
CSKA Sofia coach Lyuboslav Penev has surprisingly submitted his resignation on Friday, citing disagreement with a series of decisions of the club from earlier this week.
The news comes after CSKA suffered a number of defeats, one against rival Litex Lovech 2-0, another at home against Minyor Pernik 3-0 and yet another 3:0 against FC Basel in a Europa League game.
Penev suspended on Monday nine players after they were spotted at nightclubs, a violation of the Bulgarian team's disciplinary rules. Shortly after however four of them were granted amnesty by the club president Dimitar Borisov, who promised he will do the same with the other five as well.
The suspended players included Bulgaria internationals Ivan Karadzhov, Ivan Ivanov, Kiril Kotev and Yordan Todorov.
Lyuboslav Penev was appointed CSKA Sofia coach in the spring and replaced his uncle Dimitar Penev. The team ranked second after the national champion Levski in the previous season.
