We've contacted Vardar's players Nikola Gjosevski and Oliver Peev who were gutted after the incident today

 – First of all, I'm very happy that there are no injured players after the incident, but I have to say that everybody is very disappointed. The players are questioning their self, if it's worth to play for Vardar, no matter the fame of the club and no matter the current results, because our health is the most important thing for us. Because of the bad results we get fines and punishments. We are fined financially, we can be expelled from the club and because of the bad results our price on the transfer market drops and we are also criticized by the media. That means that we get punished because of our bad performances and we really do care if we play good or bad. The fans must know that we live from the football and we love the club that we live from, said Nikola Gjosevski.

 – It was a real shame what happened today and I still can't believe that we were attacked by our own fans. We give everything to win and normally we want only the best for our club. No one from us, especially me, who am in the club for 11 years, want to see our club in this position, so we really shouldn't be treated like that by our own fans, said Oliver Peev
