CSKA Sofia - the end?
The article below was taken from eurobasket.com and it follows an article previously published here that shows the deteriorating situation of one of Bulgaria's most historic basketball clubs that is ironically already history.
Sterianopoulos and Prelevic, president and GM of the team respectively, declared to the bulgarian federation of basketball that the team will no longer compete in the league. The alleged reason for that is "criminal interference", which means that somehow the wages of the players were stolen although no such reports were filed to their respective embassies nor to the Police force of Sofia. Furthermore it explains how the players and coaches left to play for other teams and how they managed to dissolve the team, member by member.
The full article can be found here.
If CSKA Sofia has an official statement to make regarding this article we'd like to hear it as The Hoop would like to get both sides to this story. Thank you.
