Marc Van Craen, the president of the Flemish football federation, condemns the party behavior of federal president Mehdi Bayat. As general manager of Charleroi, he let himself be carried away by the screaming supporters yesterday.
Charleroi won against Partizan Balgrado (2-1) in an empty stadium yesterday in the penultimate preliminary round of the Europa League. After the game, players and general manager Mehdi Bayat took to the streets where supporters were celebrating.
“As chairman of Voetbal Vlaanderen and as board member of the Belgian football association, I strongly condemn the behavior of the federation chairman”, Marc Van Craen reacts sharply on Twitter. “I will address him about this at the next Board of Directors,” he promises.
Mehdi Bayat is not only general manager of the league leader Charleroi, but also president of the Belgian football association.
