Tsarsko Selo were relegated from the Bulgarian First League after missing a late penalty, moments after their owner had stormed the field to prevent a player from taking it.

A win would have kept their hopes alive and sent them to a relegation playoff due to their superior goal difference over Botev Vratsa.

However, Tsarsko missed two penalties in their 1-1 draw with Lokomotiv Sofia, the second awarded in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

Martin Kavdanski and Yusupha Yaffa were involved in a dispute over who would take the kick, with club president Ivo Andreevski then coming onto the field as it appeared Yaffa was set to attempt to score from 12 yards.

He was stopped from doing so with the ball eventually handed back to Kavdanski, whose tame effort was easily saved by Damyan Damyanov, condemning Tsarsko to the second tier in remarkable circumstances.

Guys if you asked any local fan, you would know that this was deliberate, and the game was rigged. Tsarsko Selo was created only a few years ago as a private club with no fans, specifically to rig games.
People should investigate this circus.
