When I visit some old friends there, I am totally thrilled in the clum museum. There many photos of me. Estoril highly estimated me. The coach at that time was Fernando Santos who in the new century made a name in the Greek national team and in the team of AEK. He is an exceptional person and a professional. I lived about a kilometer from the stadium. My sons Alexander and Stoycho started training in Estoril.  Me and my family have wonderful memories from my stay in Portugal. Estoril was the last team in which I played as a professional. But this was a new beginning. I became a coach.”
