The details (from wikipedia)


Georgi Nikolov Dermendziev (Bulgarian: Георги Николов Дерменджиев; born 4 January 1955) is a Bulgarian professional football manager and former player who played as a defender. He is currently manager of Bulgaria.

Coaching career

After managing Spartak Plovdiv as a head coach for one season, he became an assistant at Litex Lovech under Ferario Spasov. He remained in this role for several years, followed by short spells at Botev Plovdiv and Sliven. He later briefly managed the latter during the 2010-11 A Group, but was unable to help them avoid relegation.

Ludogorets Razgrad

On July 31, 2014, Dermendzhiev replaced Stoycho Stoev as head coach at Ludogorets following the latter's disappointing 0-0 home draw against Partizan Belgrade in a Champions League qualifying match. Before this Georgi worked with Stoev and Ivaylo Petev as an assistant manager since 2011.

On 27 August 2014, Dermendzhiev became the second Bulgarian manager (after Stanimir Stoilov in 2006) to qualify a team from his country to the group stage of the Champions League. On 22 October 2014 he became the first Bulgarian coach to achieve a win in the Champions League's group phase when Ludogorets beat Basel.

He resigned from the team on 31 May 2015, but after Ludogorets was unsuccessfully led by his successors Bruno Ribeiro and Eduard Eranosyan, he was appointed again as manager on 6 November.

In the 2016–17 Champions League Ludogorets won the qualifiers against Mladost Podgorica and Red Star Belgrade, and the play-off against Viktoria Plzeň, respectively, thus becoming the first Bulgarian team to qualify twice for the group stage of the tournament, both times with Georgi Dermendziev as a coach.

Dermendzhiev resigned on 9 August 2017 after the team failed to win the 2017 Bulgarian Supercup.


On 9 January 2018 Dermendzhiev signed a deal with the Kazakhstan Premier League team Ordabasy.

Levski Sofia

On 22 January 2019, Dermendzhiev returned to Bulgaria, being appointed as head coach of Levski Sofia. He was released from his duties on 29 April 2019.


In October 2019, Dermendzhiev was appointed as head coach of the national team to manage the side during the remaining Euro 2020 qualifiers. In April 2020, his contract was extended for an additional six months, with the option for a further one year and a half.
