Six Bulgaria fans arrested after England racist taunts

Six Bulgaria football fans have been arrested for shouting racist abuse at England players during a Euro 2020 qualifier in Sofia.

The men were detained after the game – which England won 6-0 – after monkey chants were aimed at some footballers.

A ­statement by Bulgaria’s ministry of the interior said: “work is still ­ongoing to identify others”.


Bulgaria coach Krasimir Balakov, has condemned the supporters’ behaviour and apologised to the ­England squad.

And, the president of the Bulgaria Football Union (BFU), Borislav Mihaylov, resigned on Tuesday following a demand from the country’s Prime Minister, Boyko Borissov.

England debutant Tyrone Mings and goal scorers Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling were targeted by racist chants.

The game was on the verge of being abandoned, but England’s players decided to play on.
