The police added they are attempting to spot more suspects.

England routed Bulgaria 6-0 on Monday throughout their struggle from the Vasil Levski scene. However, the game was stopped twice at the first half of the new three-step process from Europe’s soccer governing body, UEFA, because of home fans — some wearing masks — taunting black English players with Nazi salutes and monkey chants.

England’s Football Association promptly hailed the”abhorrent racist chanting” leveled in the federal team as”improper”.

The UEFA has since opened disciplinary proceedings against Bulgaria on charges such as”stereotypical behavior”, “casting of items”, and”disturbance of national anthem”.

The episode has also resulted in the resignation of Bulgaria’s soccer marriage chief Borislav Mihaylov.

Meanwhile, the team supervisor Krassimir Balakov, who originally resisted the episode, has since published an announcement on Facebook to”sincerely apologize to the English footballers and to those who felt offended.”

“I condemn all sorts of racism within an unacceptable behavior that interrupts ordinary human connections,” he added.
