Bulgarian Coach Mitko Dobrev To Join Lobi Stars

The former Heartland coach is set to join another Nigerian premier league outfit...

Bulgarian coach Mitko Dobrev will lead Lobi Stars of Makurdi in the new league season in Nigeria, officials have told Goal.com

"We have agreed to sign the Bulgarian," a top official confirmed.

Dobrev was paid off by Heartland last season after the club blamed him for some indifferent results. He also worked in Ghana, leading Hearts of Oak to win the league championship.

Lobi Stars barely survived relegation this past season. Head coach Salisu Yusuf was fired after a poor run of results, leaving vice-chairman and former international, Dominic Iorfa, to take charge of the team.

Major changes are expected to be made at the club before the start of the new season.
