    Questions about Hristo Stoichkov

    These questions are probably more suited to the older folk here, but anyone can answer! I just wanted to do some research on the player and where else should I go then asking Barcelona fans!

    1. During his period at Barcelona, what positions he best at? Left wing, Left forward, Right wing, Right forward, or Second striker? I have read many conflicting pieces and I wanted to know which position he was best at. "Forward" meaning he is more central, obviously.

    2. Was Stoichkov a good passer and crosser of the ball?

    3. Was Stoichkov a hard-working player? Many sources say this, but I ask just for confirmation.

    4. How good was Stoichkov's weaker foot?

    5. On a scale of 1-10, how much of a team player was Stoichkov?


    Thanks in advance.

    He played as striker or second striker. He wasn't just a goalscorer, he also had vision and could play little throughballs or chipped passes from just outside the box to send someone clean through on goal.

    So, he rarely played on the wing? I assumed he would have considering Laudrup would have most likely played the middle and the year when Romario came he was a winger. So before Romario, Stoichkov was the striker/SS?

    How good was Stoichkov's weaker foot, if you don't mind me asking?
