Stratev resigns a Vardar coach

Stratev steps aside at Vardar
Monday, 15 March 2004
FK Vardar coach Zoran Stratev has resigned following his side's 5-2 defeat by local rivals FK Pobeda on Sunday.

Faltering title defence
The result left the defending champions in fourth place in the Macedonian First League, seven points behind leaders Pobeda, and Stratev's assistant Toni Jakimovski will take charge for another derby encounter on Wednesday, against FK Rabotnicki.

European exits
Stratev was appointed last summer and guided the club to the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round, where they were eliminated by AC Sparta Praha. AS Roma then knocked out the Macedonian champions in the UEFA Cup first round.


he showed he was a good coach by making great CL qualifs performances. i think vardar players have been too much infatuated with themselves after this huge experience and they didn't work seriously after that. Of course, the macedonian Prva Liga is nothing compared to european emotions but they're football professionals above all and must admit they don't play for Real Madrid. they should have shown more humility and humbleness. Now Pobeda will certainly win the championship. and it's a shame because Vardar is obvioulsy our best domestic squad, reinforced by such good signings as Masev and Serafimovski, and surely the best squad to compete in such a tough competition as the CL qualifs.
but Pobeda completely deserves his 1st place. thanks to kanatlarovski who courageously committed himself with the NT as he certainly knew he could win the title with His former club.
