Gundi – smile of an angel

Palmsbet Sports Betting Bulgaria

Good day, to all of you who like and enjoy my place. I called it place, because here I feel comfortable to share all my dreams and thoughts with you. To speak loud and free for everything, to be me in 120 %. Today post will be about a great man, a player, father, husband and an angel. Yes, he was an angel,soon you will understand why.

My grandfather told me once, bad man cannot smile in a shiny , childish manner, like everything he is doing is the great gift from God. You all know in what times we live. Times of bad people, thieves, layers , killers, double-faced, people who only cherish money and power. People , who are all dark even when they are smiling….

Now when I am posting these lines I am in a mood from shy smile to tears trying to drop down on the keyboard. The same feeling I had , while I was writing the post about Karlovo and Vasil Levski in my other blog. There are such humans , idols, legends which come for a short time and makes everything to look simple, they show you the way and then God takes them back to himself. Are they angels, I will leave this decision to you ….

One of these angles is Georgi Asparuhov – GUndi. The man who was chosen for the best Bulgarian football player for the past 100 years. The man in whom all the women and girls were in love. The humble boy , who had a jump like Michael Jordan ( Gundi trained for several years volleyball). Hero of the blue public and the maestro with the ball. He had the smile, which can melt any bad heart or strong eyes. As my grandfather told me, he was never brutal, aggressive, even he did not have may yellow cards in his career. But the defenders where very brutal and rough with him, that is why he was having injuries all the time of his short career. He was wanted in many movies in Bulgaria, to take part in. He was a light in the tunnel  of bad and bloody communist times…. He was and he is a star  , that shows us the way and teach us how to be better humans . Why do I believe that he was a fallen angel among us:

  1. Please look at this smile on all of pictures in the books written about him or the ones in the net. Look what purity and what eyes , like shining stars. Only children and 100% pure people can smile this way.
  2. Do you know what Asparuhov was doing exrecises after the official training of the teams, he was staying to train his shot with the head from outside the penalty box , he trained his left and right hand kick as well. He wanted to be best of the bests. And many people were around the pitch, waiting to see him, to take an autograph , to have a picture. And to all these fans he reacted gently with a smile. Pure kindness.
  3. Do you know that when he died in a car accident in Vitinya, he was in a hurry to go to a generosity game with his friend Nikola Kotkov? He never drank, because many people from team, which does not exist any more, tell and write on the walls such non-senses.  I had the chance to speak with Dimitur Penev about him, he told me that he was the guy who was like German players, always on time , the best in training and always open to help.
  4. Can you imagine what love is , when you speak with old men and women about him , they start to cry in the same time, they start to speak about Gundi? That man had that power among people, he was giving them love, with his play, with his smile, with the big  heart he had. He was the angle of kindness.
  5. I saw several interviews with Euzebio . When he started speaking about Gundi, he was like a sun , shining brightly and than started crying. Every football European legend of that time, tells that we have lost a diamond, a genius and a pure man – one of a kind.
  6. Our stadium named after him- this is not just an honor . It is a great sign and blink to Georgi. Because it is important for the young people, kids and foreign fans, to know to what a holly place they are coming. Holly place named after a saint…..
  7. Who is the best Bulgarian footballer Gundi or Stoichkov? I will tell you the things this way. If Gundi was alive and among us, he would gently and kindly give the reward to Stoichkov. Georgi Asparuhov lives in the hearts of every man, of every fan of every child or just a foreigner. Humble, good people, do not behave like jerks, do not swear journalists or even beat them. Good humans, behave like normal people. Once we all will meet in the same place.

The points are seven as a reminder of that great 7-2 against our enemy, which is not existing anymore. Three goals of Gundi and amazing play of all the members of Levski at that game. I know Gundi is watching us from somewhere  , he is smiling , he is happy or sad , but mostly he is with his friends- the other angles ( including NIkola Kotkov). He had only 28 years to show  what his mission was, but he left so much love , as he was living for 280 years. Now I am also crying, because I love Gundi, I love Levski and our love is stronger  then any hatred of other teams. I am positive that miracles happen and angels come, when he have strong belief and faith. I do believe that soon we will have and produce such talent. Only Levski and Gundi is immortal, I guess he liked my post and he is smiling back to me from somewhere above, all we know that this place is called – heaven...
