Position for the που noise that has erupted around the jersey with which the national football team of Northern Macedonia is playing in Euro 2020, which contains the badge with the initials FFM (s.s. the initials of the words – Football Federation of Macedonia ), took the Prime Minister of Northern Macedonia, Zoran Zaef.
In a written statement, Mr. Zaef notes: “All of Europe knows that our national football team represents Northern Macedonia in the Championship.
Even if the Federation is not a public entity, the national team is. As is the case in all countries of the world. So it is and must be clear at all levels and to everyone that it is the national team of Northern Macedonia, regardless of the initials of the Federation on the jersey.
We have already raised this issue with the Federation and it will be resolved in the near future on the basis of the Prespa Agreement and UEFA rules and traditions.
The implementation of the Prespa Agreement is a work in progress and our goal is to gradually find with our neighbors solutions that implement the agreement and push us forward, on the basis of cooperation and mutual respect. “
