Former title winners
Kishishev, 34, has joined from Leicester City FC after eight seasons in English football, six of which were spent at Charlton Athletic FC. The former Bulgarian international, capped 78 times by his country, played an instrumental role in Litex's two league titles in 1998 and 1999 before leaving the following year. The 32-year-old Petkov arrives from Russian side FC Kuban Krasnodar after spells in Turkey with İstanbulspor AŞ and Fenerbahçe SK. He was also part of Litex's 1998 championship-winning side and recently earned a recall to the national team, taking part in the friendly against Switzerland last week. Litex have also announced the signing of 24-year-old Hungarian midfielder György Sándor and Brazilian forward Doka Madureira. The club are third in the domestic standings and trail leaders PFC Levski Sofia by five points, with the league resuming on 28 February.
