The Macedonian FA has confirmed they changed the vote of Napoli attacker Goran Pandev in the Ballon d'Or ballot.

The FA has apologised to Pandev for changing his FIFA Coach of the Year vote for Jose Mourinho due to "a technical error."

On Friday the Macedonian Federation released an apology, admitting they had changed the vote to Del Bosque due to "a technical error."

They claimed "when the FIFA forms arrived to elect best player and Coach, the Federation contacted Pandev by telephone and he chose Mourinho.

"Due to a technical error in the completion of the form, Del Bosque's name was ticked, but Pandev had voted for Mourinho."
