Apostol Popov sues over newspaper

The Bulgarian international, Apostol Popov, will file a lawsuit, next week, against a small and yellow regional newspaper in Haskovo city, Bulgaria, which dared to claim that the player was involved in illicit activities some years ago without having any documentary evidence whatsoever to corroborate its preposterous allegations. The lawsuit will be directed against the newspaper and the author of the lie.

The lawsuit will claim moral damages and breach of reputation, among other allegations.

It is noteworthy that the yellow contribution comes only a day after Popov was named among the Bulgaria players for the qualification with Switzerland later this month. It is thus evident that the article aims at breaching the impeccable reputation of the player, who is in his best shape at present.

GRADEV SPORTS will probably join Popov on the lawsuit against the ridiculous regional newspaper.
