CSKA Sofia lose their manager

CSKA Sofia's head coach Pavel Dochev has quit just three days before the Bulgarians host The New Saints in the Europa League play-offs first leg.

CSKA have made a poor start to the new "A" League campaign, a point at newly-promoted Rakovski on Saturday their first in three games since the domestic season kicked-off.
Despite leading twice through goals from Delev and Marquinos, CSKA were held at the sixth-placed club, although the point did move them off the bottom of the table.
They lost their opening two league fixtures 1-0 to city rivals PFC Levski Sofia and 2-1 against PFC Chernomorets Burgas.
"There were many difficulties and obstacles," said former Bulgarian international defender Dotchev, who lost one of his leading players last week - Frenchman Elliot Grandin, who made his debut for Blackpool in Saturday's 4-0 win at Wigan.
"I didn't have support in my work but I'm leaving with my head held high."
The 44-year-old was only handed the reins in May at the end of the 2009/10 campaign, but has endured a disappointing start to his tenure.
CSKA say they expect to name a new coach within the next few days.
