Plovdiv pinch Pirin youngsters

PFC Lokomotiv Plovdiv have signed two talented youngsters from Bulgarian rivals PFC Pirin Blagoevgrad.

Impressive debuts
Loko Plovdiv have pulled off a coup with the capture of Bulgaria Under-21 striker Vladislav Zlatinov, who scored 14 goals in 29 games in his debut season in the top flight. The 22-year-old will be joined at his new club by 20-year-old midfielder Hristo Zlatiniski, who also broke into the Pirin team during the 2004/05 campaign, making 24 appearances and scoring twice.
