Bulgarian news agency spreads false rumours

The Bulgarian media do what they can to increase the temperature for tonight’s soccer clash bewteen Sweden and Bulgaria in Euro 2004. News agency Novinite even spreads false quotes from the Swedish coach Lars Lagerbäck.

“This is the poorest play in defense that I can imagine, says coach Lars Lagerback.

In his words Bulgarians’ swift attacks are doomed to fail as “nobody know what to do”.

Forwarder, Bayer 04 Leverkusen’s Dimitar Berbatov, was described as “talented, but lazy”.

Lagerbäck denies having said anything close to this.
