Biography


Bulgarian defender Kostadin Gadzhalov started his career at Botev Plordiv, the oldest professional club in the country.
Kostadin made his professional debut in November 2007 against CSKA Sofia, and went on to play for a number of clubs in his native Bulgaria.

The defender also represented his country at U-19 and U-21 level.

Kostadin signed for Dundee in January 2015, and made his debut in a 4-1 victory over Motherwell.

Kostadin’s best moment in a Dundee jersey came in May 2016, when he headed the equaliser in the famous 2-1 victory over Dundee United at Dens Park, a result which consigned Dundee United to relegation.

Kostadin made 44 appearances for the Dark Blues in all competitions, scoring 3 times.

The defender fell out of favour at Dens in the 2017/2018 season, and joined Brechin City on an emergency loan in February 2018.

Kostadin was released by Dundee at the end of the season, and returned to Bulgarian football with Botev Vratsa.
