The 36-year-old, who played for Fulham, Monaco, and PAOK Salonika since departing from the Theatre of Dreams, has now arrived in India to take the whole country by storm.
The all-time Bulgarian top goal-scorer is also set to reunite with two of his former Manchester United colleagues at the Keralan outfit, in the form of ex-Red Devils’ defender Wes Brown, and former head coach Rene Meulensteen.
