Georgi Naydenov was formar Bulgarian keeper and the best ever to emerge from Bulgaria. Naydenov was reliable keeper with outstanding reflexes, well positioned and with great understanding with his defenders. He was also in good athletic shape which resulted in his solid speed and very long drop kicks. Naydenov was regarded as one of the 4 best keepers in the world in late 50's and even Lav Yashin said he learned from Naydenov. Naydenov started to play for Cherveno Zname in 1949-1950, than Spartak Sofia 1950-1955, CSKA Sofia 1955-1965 and again Spartak Sofia in 1966-1967. He was honoured as Bulgarian Footballer of the Year in 1961. Naydenov won the top Bulgarian league, 8 times (all with CSKA) in 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, as well as the Bulgarian Cup, 3 times (all with CSKA) in 1955, 1961, 1965. For the Bulgaria national football team Naydenov featured in 51 games and won a bronze medal at the 1956 Summer Olympics. He played for his country at the 1962 and 1966 World Cups. Sadly Georgi Naydenov died on 28/05/1970 in Damascus, Syria aged only 39 under mysterious circumstances. The real truth about his sudden death remains even nowadays a secret but from I've read, I believe he was poisoned.

Stop the PSD copycats...
