Hristo Stoichkov: New boss of CSKA Sofia

The 47-year-old former Bulgaria forward and coach succeeds Milen Radukanov, who left his post after CSKA finished third in the Bulgarian top flight last month.

"I can promise supporters with me there will be discipline," Stoichkov said during his presentation at the Balgarska Armia Stadium.

"It will be harder for the players during the week - they will have to give their everything during training - not just in games. You know I'm a perfectionist.

"What matters to me is to fight for the win, to do anything to win. I want the players to constantly strive for excellence."

The former European Player of the Year, who spent last season at Litex Lovech, also said he would clamp down on his players' use of social networking sites as he wants them to be fully concentrated on their roles.

"We must be focused when working, so they will not need to use their phone or be on Facebook as often," he said.
