He finished the season as the league's top scorer with 21 goals and 14 assists, helping his team to gain promotion to the Superleague Greece.

Bulgaria[edit]

On 14 September, Añete scored his first goal with fantastic lob, netting the second in a 2–0 home win over Slavia Sofia. In the last minute of the game, he chipped the ball and lobbed it over the advancing Slavia's goalkeeper. On 6 December, during a 1–0 away loss against Cherno More, for a challenge on opponent Añete received his first red card in Bulgaria.

On 29 April Antonio scored a crucial last-minute goal to secure a 1-0 victory in the Bulgarian Cup Semifinal against Ludogorets. The final result of the game was 1-0 and Levski got through the final. The Spaniard also opened the scoring in the 2015 Bulgarian Cup Final, but Cherno More netted an equalizer in the 92nd minute and won the match after extra time.

However, in June 2015, Añete confirmed that he will not be extending his contract with the "bluemen".[5]
