Borislav Mihaylov

Nationality: Bulgarian
Date of birth: 12 February 1963
Association president since: 2005

• Bulgaria's most capped player with 102 appearances, Borislav Mihaylov is part of a goalkeeping dynasty; his father Biser Mihaylov played for PFC Levski Sofia in the 1960s while his son Nikolai Mihaylov has now followed him into the national team.

• Borislav Mihaylov won three league titles and three Bulgarian Cups with Levski, played in Portugal, France, Italy and Switzerland and captained the Bulgaria side featuring the likes of Hristo Stoichkov, Emil Kostadinov, Krasimir Balakov and Yordan Lechkov that reached the 1994 FIFA World Cup semi-finals.

• Hanging up his boots in 1998, Mihaylov became a member of the Bulgarian Football Union (BFS) executive committee in 2000, and was vice-president from 2001 until he was elected president in October 2005. He said: "Our aim is to develop the game on all levels - from children, youth and women's football to improving the quality of the elite teams. We are working closely with UEFA in all possible areas for the development of the game." Following a second term from 2009, Mihaylov was re-elected again in February 2014. He was elected to the UEFA Executive Committee in 2011.
