Markov steps down
Bulgaria coach Plamen Markov
Bulgaria's Euro 2004 coach Plamen Markov has reveled he has turned down an offer to extend his contract.

Markov's side lost all their games in Portugal but the 46-year-old, who has held the post since 2002, insisted: "I did not resign.

"My contract expired on Wednesday and I told [Bulgarian football chief] Ivan Slavkov I would not prolong my contract as a coach of the national team."

Bulgaria lost to Sweden (5-0), Denmark (2-0) and Italy (2-1) in Euro 2004.
