Bulgaria coach denies risking injured Petrov

SOFIA, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Bulgaria coach Plamen Markov denied on Monday that he had risked Manchester City winger Martin Petrov's health by naming him in the starting line-up in last week's World Cup qualifier against Georgia.

Petrov limped off in the first half after aggravating a knee injury which he had only just recovered from. He had played almost 90 minutes against Italy four days earlier but had made only short appearances for his club just before that.

Manchester City manager Mark Hughes reacted angrily after news Petrov would be out of action for a significant amount of time but Markov said he saw no reason to feel guilty.

"Martin had no complaints before the match," Markov told Bulgarian Darik radio. "I see no logic in not fielding him."
