Bulgaria goalkeeper Nikolay Mihaylov, who had a spell at Hellas Verona FC last season, is looking forward to playing against his childhood idol Gianluigi Buffon:


For me he has always been the best goalkeeper in the world as will always be. I remember, when I was a kid, that Hristo Stoichkov brought me Buffon's kit and gloves. I put them near my bed and now they are in a frame. Of course, there are other great goalkeepers, but for me Buffon will always be my number one. I have never compared the coaches. I respect all of them. Our new coach Ivaylo Petev has ideas, the atmosphere inside the team is great.
