The Bulgarian prime minister has called for the head of the country’s football association to resign after England players were racially abused in a European qualifier in Sofia on Monday.
Boyko Borissov “strongly condemned” the behaviour, which included Nazi salutes and monkey chants.
The match, which England won 6-0, was halted twice because of racist behaviour by home fans.
The British government is writing to Uefa on Tuesday to demand more action.
Downing Street says Prime Minister Boris Johnson has seen the footage and he thinks it is “vile and has no place in football or anywhere else”.
Bulgarian Prime Minister Borissov called his nation “one of the most tolerant countries in the world” but said it is “unacceptable” people there connect with racism and xenophobia.
“I call on Borislav Mihaylov to immediately resign as president of the Bulgarian Football Union,” he said.
“After yesterday’s shameful loss of the Bulgarian National Team and given the bad results of our football, I ordered to end any relationship with BFU, including financial, until the withdrawal of Borislav Mihaylov from the post.”
England forward Raheem Sterling tweeted to describe the call for Mihaylov to resign as a “good move”.
