#SuperFinalsBerlin M: Sokolov – “Is this dream come true? Absolutely“

Re: @Paolo
More titles He Win with SADA, and national team, so Bulgaria like a team is not very good like Brazil, as players and the club team SADA you know many years, with Leal in this team they don't have many competitors in South America. Only 1-2 Argentine teams like UPCN, Bolivar, but you know, they are not in the same level with SADA in good years...

In Europe, there is many good teams like Zenit Kazan, Lokomotiv Novosibirsk, Belgorod, Lube, Trento, Modena, and Polish team Reply
