DAILYKENN.com -- England soccer players overreacted to racist chants from fans of their Bulgarian opponents, according to Bulgarian goalkeeper. Rather, Plamen Iliev said the Bulgarian fans behaved well.
Nonetheless, protests from offended players ended the career of the president of Bulgaria's football association Borislav Mihaylov resigned. The leagues website attributed the resignation to "tensions" without mention of race.
The occasion was Monday's Euro 2020 qualifier.
It's incredible that black players are tough enough to play professional contact sports, but shallow enough to be phased by heckling.
