Georgi Dermendzhiev will debut tomorrow for the third time leading Ludogorets. This will happen at the Şükru Saraçoğlu stadium against Fenerbahçe, who have won 17 in a row.

"Coach Kartal has created a team at a high European level, not by chance with 17 consecutive wins. It is good to play against such players," he began.

"I'm happy to make my debut against Fenerbahce. I've always wanted to play against strong teams. These matches are tough. These guys played a good game against Ajax, for example," he added. "I will be happy with a draw. It will contribute to the confidence of the players, and a point will be important for us. Because Ludogorets can be second in the group. My first debut was against Partizan. Both games are very good, they can be compared. It remained in history, hopefully the meetings with Fenerbahce will also go down in history," he said. "Ludogorets is a well-structured club. The owners created it. Now the team is regressing, but I am confident that they will play in the Champions League again. The players have to believe that they have quality. That will happen with time. Fenerbahce has very strong players. This is evident from the results and ranking. I hope we have success."

"I want a coach in my staff, but at the moment Dyakov is engaged, he is in my team, and soon there will be more coaches, Zdravko Zdravkov is the goalkeeper coach," he thinks.

"I am happy that they chose me. I am loyal to Ludogorets", concluded Dermendzhiev.
