One of the leading Bulgarian players in the first half of the 20th century. Kapuy was inside left and formed legendary partnership with player of similar name Asen Panchev on the left side of the Levski and NT attacking line. Although he had many qualities he was remembered especially for fantastic volleys in wwhich nobody could match him. He had very strong shot, physical power and deadly left foot. Excellent technician with great sense of combinative play and vision of the game, two-footed with good pace as well. Peshev was born on April 5, 1908 in Sofia. He started his football career in the capital, "Vladislav", which should not be confused with his famous namesake, Varna - Bulgaria's first champion in 1925, 16 years old dress shirt "Levski" and wear it proudly as 13 seasons. During this period played 99 league games, which marks 86 goals - an outstanding achievement for its time. Also has assets in his 62 international matches with 52 goals.

His qualities have not gone unnoticed by foreign observers and coincidentally the period 1934-1939, the Peshev play in Czechoslovakia, and toured consistently "Zhidenitse" (Brno) and "Moravska Slavia". And at that time Czechoslovakia world football force, the national team is a step away from the World Cup, losing the final in 1934 by host Italy after extra time. Asen Peshev was named first player number 1 in Bulgaria in 1931. in a survey of then newspaper "Sport". He has 41 games (18 as captain) and 10 goals for the national team, which debuted on July 17, 1927 in 3-3 draw against Turkey in Sofia. As national Peshev Cup triumph of the Bulgarian Olympic Committee in 1931, and the Balkan Cup in 1932 and 1935, which are the biggest successes of Bulgarian football in the years before World War II. The tournament in Belgrade in 1932, it marked one of the goals for the 2-0 win over Romania, is best from our team. Before the decisive match against Yugoslavia favorite and host Peshev said: "I am confident in the victory of Bulgaria". As indeed it is - to our 3:2. Then he launches the ultimate success and 2-0 over Greece. At the end of the year Bulgaria defeated Turkey 3-2 in Istanbul and Caputo again recorded among the goalscorers. Alternate triumphs and downs, as he was the captain of the ill-fated team of Bulgaria registered record with a 0:13 defeat by Spain on 21 May 1933 in Madrid. On the Balkan Cup tournament in Sofia Peshev still scoring goals in the doors of Greece 5-2 victory and a 4-0 defeat in Romania.
