Ex-Barça: Stoichkov to Mamelodi Sundowns

South-African first division club Mamelodi Sundowns has earlier today officially announced the appointment of former Barcelona forward Hristo Stoichkov (43) as their new manager.

Iranian first division club Abu Moslem had last month announced the appointment of Stoichkov (43) but the Bulgarian denied the news a few weeks later (read more here). Stoichkov, who will soon be presented at a press conference, has been away from coaching since he resigned as Celta Vigo coach in October 2007.

Hristo Stoichkov joined Barcelona in the summer of 1990, arriving from CSKA Sofia. Five years later, he moved to Italian club Parma but came back the next season. In 1998, he returned to CSKA Sofia.

With Barcelona, Stoichkov won five Spanish leagues in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1998, two Spanish cups in 1990 and 1998, four Spanish super cups in 1991, 1992, 1994 and 1996, one Champions League in 1992, one European Cup winner's cup in 1997 and two European super cups in 1992 and 1997. In 1994, he won the Ballon d'Or.

"I will always hate Real Madrid. There is just something about them that gets up my nose. I would rather the ground opened up and swallowed me than accept a job with them. In fact, I do not like speaking about them because it makes me want to vomit."
