I read in an interview with former CSKA Sofia player Joao Carlos (currently playing at Belgian side Lokeren) that he got sick of the maffia there. He got paid by bulldozerlike men in a sportscar, the money coming out of a sportsbag. He could get in trouble if he used the money in his native Brazil, 'cause he didn't pay any taxes. Weird story for a highly estimated team like that. Do you know anything about other teams in Eastern Europe that set up these illegal affaires ? ergo, is the maffia playing a big role in Eastern Europe football ?
