FA admit to Pandev/Mou error

The Macedonian FA has apologised to Goran Pandev for changing his FIFA Coach of the Year vote for Jose Mourinho due to a 'technical error’.

The Napoli striker insisted last week that his vote for the Real Madrid boss has been changed to Vicente Del Bosque without his knowledge.

At first Mourinho and Pandev appeared to blame FIFA, who then published a copy of the fax they received from the Macedonian FA.

The Macedonian Federation however, have since released an apology, admitting they had changed the vote to Del Bosque due to “a technical error.”

They claimed “when the FIFA forms arrived to elect best player and Coach, the Federation contacted Pandev by telephone and he chose Mourinho.

“Due to a technical error in the completion of the form, Del Bosque’s name was ticked, but Pandev had voted for Mourinho.”
