Georgi Peev - Bulgarian Footballer and Agent

He has been involved in the sport since the age of 12 and had his first coach, Ivan Kotsev, at the FC Lokomotiv Sofia school. In 1997, he signed his first professional contract with Lokomotiv Sofia. In 2000, he was sold to Dynamo Kyiv for $2.5 million. During the 2005/2006 season, he was loaned to Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk. In 2007, he transferred to Amkar Perm for $450,000, mentioning later that Amkar was the only team interested in buying him instead of taking him on loan.

Professional Career and Achievements

Peev made his debut for Amkar Perm in a cup match against Moscow in February. He missed the 18th round match against Zenit due to suspension and worked as a commentator alongside Gennadiy Orlov. He scored his first goal in a game against Krylia Sovetov. In that season, he played 29 matches, scored 2 goals, and provided 6 assists. In his best season with Amkar, Peev started in all 30 games, scored 4 goals, and provided 3 assists. Amkar finished in 4th place in the league that season and reached the final of the Russian Cup, where they lost to CSKA Moscow on penalties. Peev played 91 minutes in that match. After the departure of coach Miodrag Bozovic, Dimitar Dimitrov, who was familiar with Peev from the Bulgarian national team, took charge of the club. Despite the club's disappointing season, Peev performed at a very high level. He provided 2 assists and scored 2 goals in 28 matches in the Russian Premier League in 2009, including the winning goal against Rubin Kazan.

Later Career and National Team

In the 2014/2015 season, Peev played for Amkar Perm under coach Slavoljub Muslin. However, Muslin's focus on rejuvenating the squad strained his relationship with some senior players. Although Peev was not frequently included in the squad, he made valuable contributions when given the opportunity, including scoring a goal against Spartak Moscow in a home match. After Muslin's dismissal and the appointment of Gadzhi Gadzhiyev as the new head coach, Peev began to feature regularly. He played in 15 matches and scored 5 goals in the 2014/2015 season. In January 2016, he became a player-coach for the club but later terminated his contract due to a conflict with Gadzhiyev after the semi-final match of the Russian Cup against Zenit.

Peev made his debut for the Bulgarian national team in 1999 and became an integral part of the squad from the following year. He represented Bulgaria in the UEFA European Championship in 2004. Despite the team's failure to progress beyond the group stage, Peev faced criticism from the media. As a result, he stopped being called up for the national team and only played his next match in 2006. After joining Amkar Perm, he played four more matches before being left out until 2010 when he played two full matches against Belgium and South Africa. On March 30, 2011, Peev officially announced his retirement from international football.
