he will be always exposed to the blame of "Levski favoritism" and "Raeva puppet".
And he might well be one a bit. I have no idea who I want. I don’t know why they don’t try with Georgi Vassilev - true the guy is more of a club coach, be he is the only Bulgarian coach I think with some, though not that great western experience. Balakov would be the other one and there is this guy Angel Chervenkov in hearts, I think. Lupko Petrovic might be a good choice too, but he is a bit too old for that may be.
A foreigner (Lupko is hardly a real one) might be a good choice, like Scheffer and so on. The core of our team, the bets players are all working abroad for years now, so a foreigner with more modern approach to football might work well. What I think happens (as I am working abroad for 6 years now and sort of have a feeling like that too), is that the likes of Berbo, Marto, etc get their ars whooped around in the big clubs, they get used to that system there, but then they come back to the NT and it feels like vacation, as the methods and the discourse (the way people talk to each other, the insults, the jokes, the attitude) are all old fashion, too slow, too not so serious enough and so on. So its not like they set the tune, but quite the reverse - the local realities, local players and coach stuff are winning over their hearts. And who can blame them - you work like horse for the money, come back home, mummy is cooking, you are star, everybody is a friend, you are just human. It happens to me too
PS No disrespect to all hard working people in Bulgaria, most of my friends are there (or - back there) and I know things are pretty serious in the private sector. But I have that feeling our football clubs, methods are still lacking behind.
