    Is this for real? This is honestly an embarrassment that we now have an Albanian as our president of our own Football Federation. What a joke some of the people in power are letting this country become. Shameless cowards. I don’t care to hear any of you by the way come and tell me how a bunch of our guys on our team are Macedonian and Albanian. That’s great that they represent us proudly and I appreciate that. But what I even don’t appreciate is when I hear that some of these guys don’t even speak the language or know the anthem and that’s not right if you’re representing that country, that needs to change.

    1. Gushev do you for real thing we care what you Bulgarians think..
      N. Macedonia is not Bulgarian and stop with your ugly dreams
