League summary:

Miki Orachev was born in Blagoevgrad and started playing football in his local club, Pirin. In 2011 he moved to the best team in the country – Levski Sofia – and his career accelerated then. He won the Bulgarian U-18 league title and made his debut in the first team of “The Blues” just a few months later. That took place on 12th April 2014 in a 2-1 home league loss against Litex Lovech. He came on as a substitute for Ricardo Nunes in the 48th minute. In the last phase of the season he was a regular in the first team and he made a total of 6 appearances in the Bulgarian league. Since the very early years he represented his country at the youth level – starting at U-15 all the way to the U-19 national team, where he plays now.



“Miki is an offensive left full back. He is sharp and strong in defense. He has good technical skills, good header skill and a good vision of the game. He likes the offensive game and to provoke the opponents with dribble. He’s fast with a good shot and a good cross. He brings an offensive value to a team, with a lot of activity during 90 minutes in the left side.”
