Todorov wants to stay at Pompey

Todorov wants to stay at Pompey

Sveotslav Todorov has made it clear he has no desire to move away from Fratton Park to join Championship side Leeds United, or any other team.

Pompey`s Bulgarian International striker Todorov has been linked with a possible move to Yorkshire in the past few days, but says he is desperate to stay at Fratton Park. Speaking to the Portsmouth News he said the following.

'It's up to Portsmouth what happens. But I want to stay here. I love it here'

Todorov became a Redknapp signings when arriving from previous club West Ham United in March 2002 for £750,000. He finished top scorer in the old Division One in Pompey`s Championship winning season, but he has been hampered with injuries ever since, rarely featuring in the first team until his vital contribution in last seasons dramatic relegation escape.

With Redknapp keen to improve his striking options a move away from the South Coast could still be a possibility despite his pleas but that being to Elland Road would appear unlikely.

Another in the long list of players (Taylor, O'Neill, Hughes, LuaLua, Mendes) commiting, and showing their commitment to the club in the past few weeks. This is the type of commitment we want to see. We all love Todorov too, and know he'll do a job if/when asked. good on him!

Good old Toddy!!! he was pricless at the end of the season, that was a great individual goal against Sunderland that has been a little overshadowed by Mattys penalty. Hope he stays!

Toddy has proved that when match fit he is a class striker. His passion for and contribution to Pompey has made him a crowd favourite and he should stay.

I agree with all of the above and i'd much prefer Toddy than Kanu, i dont think we have much need for a non scoring striker on his way out

TBH, i don't think toddy could be classed as a top class striker now, due to the pace of the league and his injuries and time spent away from the game. Having said that, i think the bloke has been fantastic for pompey, and i hope he stays. With his football brain and the way he can pick passes and runs, i think he'd best be deployed as the man behind the striker in a 4-4-1-1 role or as a super sub. I hope we keep him.

FEn-100 I think HR already regards Toddy as a super sub, and with what seems to be a resurgent smiling Benjani i think that will be the way it stays. but given our addiction to injuries ( or strikers having tantrums/ barren periods) i think we need to keep him and he will play.

he isn't a top 10 sides starting striker!

For me Toddy has been great and equal in loyalty. Unfortunately I think he is fast approaching his 'used by date'. Great to have as a back-up but not for me in the Prem. starting line-up. That doesn't mean I haven't appreciated him, I am just seeing it as it really is, like a Football Manager. At that level you can't keep picking favourites or past success stories. I know this may offend some of you but it also means I don't want him to go.
