Former senior coach of Levski Emil Velev-Kokala has decided to revive the brand “Levski-Spartak in Bulgarian sport”. This name will be given to the last school’s coaching staff, who led the Blue to the 2009 title.
The official opening of the school is on March 3rd from 10 am in the morning at the “Peace and Friendship” complex in the Student city.
Levski-Spartak was the name of the merged club, created in January 1969. The company was under the auspices of the Ministry of the Interior and successfully competed with the team of CSKA Sept Army. flag in all sports. And Levski-Spartak and CSKA Sofia. flags have won more Olympic medals than most NOCs.
Emil Velev was a player of Levski-Spartak in the notorious 1985 Cup of Bulgaria finals. Then, after the excesses of the players, the party and state leadership decided to disband the football sections of the companies. Under public pressure, they were still preserved, but with new names Vitosha and Sredets.
Immediately after the changes, the name Levski-Spartacus was restored, but three rounds later the team returned the historic name Levski. In some of the other sports, the Levski-Spartak brand has continued to exist for several more years.
Emil Velev will also be joined by former goalkeeper of Etar and Levski Igor Kulish, who will be responsible for the players of this post.
Kokala played in Bulgaria only for Levski-Spartak and Vitosha, after which he made a name in Israel. The other nickname he was known for was James.
The school motto is a reminder of that. It reads “Never forget where you left off”. Emil Velev is the second former Levski football player to build a school with the club’s name in it. The other is Stanislav Angelov-Peleto, whose school is called Levski-Rakovski.
