During his stay in Barcelona, he had become an idol for the club's fans, and was Barça's most popular player at the time, having earned a place in the supporters' hearts much like Johan Neeskens and Diego Maradona in the past.

    In his first season with the club Stoichkov was suspended for two months for stomping on a referee's foot, but he still netted 14 league goals and six more in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup.

    In 1994 he was named European Footballer of the Year after leading his national side to the 1994 World Cup semifinals.

    In 1997 he helped Barcelona win the Spanish Super Cup, Copa del Rey and the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup.

    Great player. One of the best actually. Remember how well he played for his national team as well.

    Hristo recently talked for official FCB site and heaped praise on Samuel Eto.
    I wish we found him some kind of role for Blaugrana, maybe as a scout for Balkans?
