Yordan Letchkov (also transliterated Jordan, Iordan, Lechkov) ( ) (born July 9, 1967 in Sliven) is a former Bulgarian footballer and the current mayor of Sliven. He is generally regarded as one of the best players to come out of Bulgaria and was a key member of the squad which reached the semi-finals of the 1994 World Cup Finals. Known to many as "The Magician" Letchkov was a gifted player who could play as a striker or on the left side of midfield, he was easily recognizable for his baldness. However, his career was often dictated by his moody nature and the numerous arguments and fall-outs with fellow players and managers.
