Teimour Radjabov: Football only because I am obliged to

Yesterday I coppied Mtel Masters press release "Levski – Chess United to be replayed on 13 May".

Now Chessdom informs us that Radjabov is not really eager to run:
Teimour Radjabov will play on Mtel Masters 2008 for the first time. At the press conference he said, "I will play in the Chess United vs Levski match only because I am obliged to. I haven't played soccer since I was 14" After the sack of the coach of Levski Stanimir Stoilov and the statement by Radjabov, the match that last year created so much interest is in danger.

By the way, pairings are also up on Chessdom, 1st round will see Aronian - Topalov, Cheparinov - Bu, Radjabov - Ivanchuk
