Martin Petrov burst onto the Premier League scene in 2007 when Sven-Goran Eriksson's Manchester City signed the flying winger from Atletico Madrid.
The flying winger in the black gloves became a staple of highlight shows throughout his first season as he racked up nine assists and five goals from out wide.
Petrov has a direct style of play and the ability to beat fullbacks off the dribble...a true throwback winger.
Last season Petrov started only eight Premier League games but still notched four goals and three assists.
Rather than give Petrov a road back into the City lineup, it merely preceded the signing of World Cup-winning winger Davis Silva.
Silva joined Shaun Wright Phillips, Craig Bellamy, Adam Johnson, and a host of other attacking options that shunted Petrov further down the pecking order, leading to his eventual release.
Motivation for Petrov will be abundant as he is still angry over his treatment at the hands of "unprofessional" Manchester City.
"I am 31 years old and I felt like I was 13 there. Nobody spoke with me," seethed the flying winger.
Expect City fullbacks to have their hands full with a fired-up Petrov when his new team Bolton Wanderers face them this season.
The threat of Petrov's crossing will be very potent at Bolton, as two exceptional aerial strikers will be on the end of them.
Spring heeled Kevin Davies and the powerful Johan Elmander will relish the service of Petrov, and help him bounce back onto the Premier League scene with a bang.
