Bulgaria's record title holders CSKA Sofia have signed ex-national team winger Martin Petrov on a season-long contract.

This will be Petrov's second spell at the "red" club, after he played there for 2 seasons, 1996-1998, before going on to make a successful career in European clubs such as Wolfsburg, Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, and Bolton.

The speedy left winger, who is now aged 34, also has 90 matches for the national team, including 19 goals, in the period 1999-2011.

During the press conference after his official presentation, Petrov said he was considering retirement several weeks ago, but his wife and CSKA coach Stoycho Mladenov convinced him to return to his beloved club.

Petrov last played for Spanish Espanyol, who released him this summer.
