Liga II outfit Farul Constanta have surprised the football world by appointing Grigor Pasha as their new manager.
Pasha, who is Bulgarian, is no stranger to the Black Sea region. In the 1980s he played in the Varna region in Bulgaria.
He then took time out from football, working in the merchant navy and what is perhaps best described as security consultancy.
In a brief statement, Mr Pasha said, ‘The rumour, currently doing the rounds on social media, that I have moved over the border to avoid alimony payments has no basis in fact. None whatsoever’.
He added that he was excited to be taking over at ‘the marinarii’.
