Ivan Slavkov's thread!

I was thinking about it long time ago but now it is official. I do open a weekly thread on Ivan Slakov's interviews, words and actions. In case some one does not know - he is the President of the Bugarian Football Federation, the President of Bugarian Olympic Committee and a member of the International Olympic Committe!

Whay do I open this thread - well, stay tuned and you will see!

So, here is the thread dedicated to one genius - Ivan Slavkov /Bateto/.

Here is the first article of this thread.

taken from the Bg sportsnewspaper Meridian Match ... URL: http://www.mmatch.techno-link.com/ (only in Bulgarian)

The President of the BG Football Federation landed on Sofia Airport today aftet he took part in an official state visit in Mexico.

Q: Mr Slavkov, are you satisfied form what you have done in Mexico?
I.S.: Yes, however I don't wanna talk about it right now. I am in divorse proceedings ...

...

Q: Atanas uzunov (the Pres. of the Refferee Commission at BFU) has said that he wants to decrease the number of the profi refs?
I.S.: Good. The number of the refs should be prportional to the game played!

Q: Will you have the last word on the refferee official list?
I.S. My word will be instrumental not only for the refs list but for the results of the games!

Q: Who is gonna be the champ this year?
I.S.: This is sth that only I know! But I won't tell you (the journalists) because you will tell it to everyone ... . No, I am just kidding I haven't seen the first game yet (me: they haven't been played by the way ) Whoever plays better will be champion

Q: Levski has beaten Botev on Wen in a friendly?
I.S. Well, the Levski will be a champion. By the way, who played friendlies today?
Q: Levski won over Belasitca and CSKA lost to Beyer Leverkusen (me: 0-2).
I.S. Well, Bayer is a great team. We can forgive one loss
Q: What do you think about the upcoming friendly of the Nt against Germany.
I.S. the Germans show respect for this game. We expect a big delegation headed by E. Braun.
Q: There are rumours that Germany will coem with their second team?
I.S. Even better, then we will beat the Germans one more time
Q: Is true that BFU has an idea to gather together the golden team of 1994 and you have called Stoichkov already?
I.S. I think I should first gather together the 1986 team and then the one from 1970!!!
Q: Gibi Iskrenov (one of the most loved player ever in Buglaria) was about to start working for BFU ...
I.S. I haven't seen his papers on my desk yet!
Q: Gibi said he was ready to help the BG football?
I.S. I am also ready to fly in the Universe but can't find anyone to give me $ 20 bil ...



The one and only ... Ivan Slavkov!

More to come ... I bet!

Just before the Qualifier Bulgaria-Croatia at the newly renovated national stadium 'Vasil Levski' Ivan Slavkov was asked:
'What do you expect from the game?'
and the answer:
'Its end'

Another one! It was during the IOC (Intern. Olympic Commitee) meeting in Tokyo, I think. Few months ago. it was a special meeting on teh corruption.

A japanese journalsit went to Bateto and asked him:
Q: Mr Slavkov, is there any corruption in IOC?"

Without any hesitation Bateto turned his eyes and said:

"Of course, we have to make our own living!!!"

Calssic!!!

Today he said that if he becomes a Mayor he will stop building the underground

A journalist from Darik asked him sth and here comes what he replied:'Tell Tomislav that Darik Radio doesn't exist for me.I don't love you anymore.No. not you,only the radio.......I am in Plovdiv now-I am going to Rousse.....'

To Rousse through Plovdiv-a very wise decision

2 years ago bateto went with the NT to Sweeden I think for a friendly game. It was two weeks before the BG Football Union (BFU) congress where new Boss was suppose to be elected.

At the airoort on their way back home:

Q: Mr Slavkov, you were away forfew days and suddenly there are three candidates for your position at the BFU ?

B: I will wait for them to become 5 so I can crash them all in one ballot!!! (after 5 sec of thinking) Where do they think they are going? To eat honey with the bear?

Q: So, what do you think, how will the elections go?

B: Well, all of the pplin the congress are very knowledgable, they are real football people! They know and they see that the football in Bulgaria is growing and is heading to teh right direction day by day! Now they are already beating up the referees every week, in every round of the league!!!"

The res was 85% for ... BATETO!!!

I have decided to upload here some of the stuff that I shared with Barsa fans in their fm. It comes from the other Beutiful Mind in the Bulgarian football hemisphere, Mr. hristo Stoichkov himslef!

Hristo was again penalized for sth during one training to take free kicks away from the rest. Then Cruiff shouted at him saying "Hristo come back here and join the rest. We will have tactical lesson" Hrsito however wasnt willing to abide and said "you told me to take freekicks and I will be taking freekicks." Then Johan the Great got furious and screamed at his face, " Come here immiditaley; I made you as a player and I will destroy you if I want". Hristo put his hands on his waste in his typical and famous NUMEBR 8 pose, and replied:

"Why did you decide to make me a football player, if its so easy, why dont you make one out of your son, this piece of wood, Jordi"

And Hristo went to Parma ...

Yesterday Bateto was in Plovdiv. The local newspaper maritza reports that he bought a Trabant for 500 DM and told one of the leading sport journalist from the National TV to take care of it. Then, he said: I will write on one of teh doors "Solomon Pasi" (our froreign minister's name), on the seiling "Ivan Slavkov" and at the back CCCP (USSR), so people will know my priorities. On the front drivers door I will put the EU flag and will write "Knock".
