Despite featuring one famous name in the squad, George Weah - not the Liberian former World Player of the Year, but his son, George Weah Jr, Kaliakra has had a poor run of form lately.

The club, promoted to the top flight for the first time in 2010, suffered their 14th league defeat of the season when they were thrashed 4-0 at home by Chernomorets Burgas on Wednesday.

The Kavarna-based club have not won a point in their five games this year and they are in penultimate place in the standings with seven points from 19 matches.

As it languishes eight points from safety in the Bulgaria A PFG relegation zone, the club president has taken drastic action - wages will be suspended until the team starts winning.

"The decision will be in force until further notice," Kaliakra president Ventsislav Vasilev was quoted as saying.

How long that fighting spirit might persist while they remain unpaid, remains to be seen.
