MACEDONIAN FOOTBALL TRICKS
The disgrace called "Macedonian Football Federation" continues to exist, albeit barely. The thumping Milanovo Kumanovo received yesterday at the hands of Croatian based Slaven Belupo was the icing on the cake for the FFM.
Milano started off their UEFA Cup match with a 'youth' team who barely had the energy to run from one end to the other end of the field. With no money to compete in the Macedonian league, the club owner in jail, what prompted the spineless FFM to issue a UEFA license to Milano to compete and further embarass the already embarassing Macedonian club football.
Slaven Belupo, a rather mediocre Croatian team (has lost to other Macedonian clubs in friendly matches) played as if on training. If it wasn't for Markovski, Milano's goalie, the score could have been easily 12-0. Thanks to the great and at moments amazing goalkeeping Milano lost 'only' 4-0.
The players fielded from Milano were not even listed in an official document, rather they were added hours before the match. There was no questions these 7-8 new players were what can be qualified as "Youth", most being around 17, 18 years old.
Where is the FFM in all this? Nowhere, as usual. The FFM was fully aware FK Milano had no money, owner is jailed, no organization, no contracts with players. In other words, Milano is not a professional club. What qualified Milano to receive a UEFA Cup certificate ?
The Prilep based club, after three weeks of delicate thinking figured out a way to trick UEFA and FIFA. Pobeda will merge with another Prilep based football club called Pela. This way, FC Pobeda will become FC Pela. UEFA has banned FC Pobeda from Euro competition (for 8 years), but not FC Pela. Is this trickery moral? It is if you ask Pobeda's owners, already convicted by UEFA for fixing matches and betting against their own club.
The players will remain the same, the management will remain the same. Mafioso Aleksandar Zabrcanec (banned by UEFA/FIFA for life), will continue to manage the club, though will appoint a subordinate, close relative as the manager 'on paper'.
