It’s been a mixed start in the league but you scored and ICT got their first win of the campaign over Arbroath – do you think that result can kick-start a run of form?
“We have been playing well in all our three matches. I just think in the last game we were most clinical and that’s why we picked up the three points. Hopefully it is a start of a good run.”
Your former club Hearts are considered big favourites for the title – having played them in the Betfred Cup and coming up against them in the league next do you feel you can compete with them all the way?
“We focus on each game as it comes. So this week we will work hard, learn about their strengths and weaknesses and take it from there. It’s far too early in the season to say who is favourite or who is not. Everyone is in this league for a reason and it’s a really hard division. We just need to focus on ourselves.”
What are your personal aims and targets for the season ahead?
“I want to help the team to get where it should be. If that means scoring lots of goals then hope I do.”
You are capped for Bulgaria at Under-21 level. Do you still hold hopes to earn a full cap?
“Yes it was really proud moment for my family and I . I’m in a really good place right now and enjoying my football and playing with consistency and goals. If I do well for ICT I hope I get noticed. It would make me, my family and my friends really proud.”
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Have you got an ultimate footballing ambition?
“I always have pushed myself to the limit. I believe that hard work always pays off so hopefully I improve, score goals and I will see where that takes me. But for now as I said I take it day by day and game by game.”
John Robertson seems a popular figure amongst the players at ICT – what is he like to play under?
“It’s great having a manager who has been a striker and he wants to play attacking football. I have really enjoyed playing under him and learning all the small things that can make me a better goalscorer and player.”
