Yordan Letchkov 1992-1996

Postby Albo7 » 2011 Jul 29, 13:34

Club: Hamburger SV



Growth Type: Standart/Lasting

INFO:

He began his career as a youngster with Sliven football club (Bulgaria), after breaking into the first team at a young age he secured a transfer to Bulgaria's top side CSKA Sofia (Bulgaria, 1991-92 season) and soon after he made the move to Germany with Hamburger SV (Germany, from 1992-93 season to 1995-96 season). After that he secured a move to Olympique de Marseille (France, 1996-97 season) at this point one of the top clubs in Europe. However a difficult relationship with the clubs management led to his departure after one season. His next stop took him to Turkey with Besiktas Istanbul (Turkey, from 1997-98 season) after a two year period away from the game he finished his career in 2001-02 season back with CSKA Sofia. Lechkov is often referred to as being part of the "Golden Generation" of Bulgarian football, who along with Stoichkov, Kostadinov and Balakov led the national side to the semifinals of the 1994 World Cup.

Lechkov played 45 matches and scored 5 goals for the Bulgaria national football team;[2] However his international career was limited by a series of disagreements with coaches and the Bulgarian Football Federation.
He is perhaps best remembered for scoring the winner against Germany in the quarter-finals of the 1994 World Cup, as Bulgaria reached the semi-finals where they were beaten by Italy.
Lechkov went on to shine in the 1996 European Championships in England despite the failure of Bulgaria to reach the quarter finals producing a man-of-the-match performance against a strong French side. He went on to contribute greatly to his nation's successful qualification campaign for the 1998 World Cup championships. However his chance to play in the tournament was blocked by FIFA due to a little publicised contractual dispute with Besiktas.

Personally I'd switch "Box to Box" with "Free Roaming".
It's still a nice set though.

Free roaming would make him too Attack minded, and with the 84 for attack he would always get into good positions while attacking, no need for it imo, he was renowned for for being a hard worker and helper of the defence as much as he was renowed for his talent, and with box to box this is reflected nicely in game.

Same logic as Karlsruher.
Some people call the club as its city ground (Karlsruhe), but its official name is Karlsruher Sport Club (or simply KSC).
