Georgi Dermendzhiev has resigned as Ludogorets head coach after champions defeat in Bulgarian Supercup final against Botev Plovdiv on Wednesday.
Georgi Dermendzhiev has won three Bulgarian league titles with Ludogorets (2015, 2016 and 2017) and one Bulgarian Supercup (2014). In 2014 Dermenzdhiev qualified the Eagles into the Champion League group stage to become the second Bulgarian coach in the modern era after Stanimir Stoilov to do so.
“The management and everyone at PFC Ludogorets would like to thank Georgi Dermendzhiev for the joint work through the years, as well as for his empathy for the Ludogorets project since its start. Dermendzhiev has a massive contribution for the six consecutive titles, as well as for the team’s successful performance on the European scene”, says a statement on Ludogorets official website.
“The whole Ludogorets crew wishes Georgi Dermendzhiev even more success and fulfilment in his future career. He will always be welcome at Ludogorets Arena.”
Ludogorets will now look on for a new head coach and will try to appoint someone before the first Europa League playoff game against Suduva on August 17th.
