Football career[change | change source]

After starting professionally with hometown's PFC Pirin Blagoevgrad, Andonov was constantly being one of the first division top scorers.[1]

Between 1994 and 1996, he spent his playing career in Spain and Germany. Returning afterwards to CSKA, Andonov scored 18 times in 25 matches, for another championship. He retired in 2000 at the age of 33, after two seasons with PFC Lokomotiv Sofia and another spell in Germany, with 1. FC Union Berlin.

Andonov gained five caps for Bulgaria and was picked for the squad at the 1994 FIFA World Cup, but did not leave the bench during the tournament in the United States as the national team finished in fourth position.

In 2001, he established his own children's academy near the village Pokrovnik.[2]
