Actually, Jaaber doen not have the bulgarian passport yet, 'cause it must be paid off.. it is so complicated the whole story with this passport, but if finally he foins the team of Paniwnios BC, then he will get the passport. ;)

P.S. Keep up the good work!

Rumours say that mr.Lianos, the chair-man on Paniwnios BC has agreed with Ibby in a 3-years contract, but you wrote that Roma wants him to stay in Italy..and also, Mahmuti, Benetton's head coach, wants him also according to italian sport-sites..
