CSKA Sofia FM17 Club Guide | Be Someone New

CSKA Sofia are a Bulgarian football club who currently play in the top tier of Bulgarian football. They hold the record for the most top division titles with 31, however they suffered a forced relegation in 2015 due to financial trouble.

In Football Manager you take over a recently promoted CSKA side who have returned to the top division and will be looking to take back their crown that Ludogorets have taken firm control of.

The following post is an overview of the club should you choose to take them on in Football Manager 2017. Go on, be someone new!

The Squad

Top Players

gustavo culma

Gustavo Culma

Colombian winger Gustavo Culma is a 23 year-old with good all-round attributes. He is a new player at Sofia and is a fairly low earner. He could be a good performer for you should you play a system with wide men, though he can also play in central attacking midfield too.

ruben pinto

Ruben Pinto

Deep lying playmaker Ruben Pinto is perhaps your best asset. He is very versatile in that he can play in most positions down the spine of the team and has very good attributes both in defence and attack.

Portuguese Trio

In addition to Pinto, you also have three other impressive Portuguese players to use. These three are midfielders, meaning that as a team you have a very good set of midfielders but should look to strengthen in both defence and attack.

Hot Prospects

kiril despodov

Kiril Despodov

Our first hot prospect in the Sofia ranks is Kiril Despodov. He could, and perhaps should, be used as one of your first choice strikers this season. With a lack of depth up top, Kiril could take advantage of this and really push on towards his potential.

stoycho atanasov

Stoycho Atanasov

Full-back Stoycho Atanasov is another hot prospect that will benefit hugely from first team football this season and beyond. His attributes look promising; a year of first team football will really help his development.

tonislav yordanov

Tonislav Yordanov

Like Despodov, Tonislav Yordanov is a hot prospect in attack. At 17, he could be too young for a full season in the first team but it won’t hurt to throw him in the mix occasionally. One for the future.
