Radoslav Vasilev (Bulgarian: Радослав Василев; born 12 October 1990) is a Bulgarian footballer who plays as a striker for Septemvri Sofia.

Career[edit]

Vasilev started playing football at Slavia in his hometown Sofia before his tenth birthday.

Reading[edit]

He transferred from Slavia Sofia to Reading for an undisclosed fee on 12 December 2007.[1] Reading's Academy Recruitment officer, Steve Shorey (father of Nicky Shorey) explained his reasons for signing Vasilev: "He's different from what we've got at the same age. He's not just about brawn and pace, he's got football intelligence. He's a lovely size, around 6 ft 2 in, can use both feet." Vasilev was released from Reading at the beginning of May 2010, alongside midfielders Mitchell Bryant and Oliver Bozanic.[2]

Slavia[edit]

In July 2010 Vasilev returned to Bulgaria, signing a contract with his home club Slavia Sofia. He made his A PFG debut during the 2010–11 season on August 21, 2010 in a 2–0 away win against Pirin Blagoevgrad. Following a long absence due to injury, he left Slavia on 25 October 2016.[3]

Septemvri[edit]

On 12 December 2016 Vasilev signed with Septemvri Sofia.[4] After almost 2 years without playing he returned in play by debuting for Septemvri in the Vtora Liga on 27 February 2017 in a match against Pomorie won by Septemvri.[5] He scored his first goal for the team on 1 April 2017 for the 5:0 win over Botev Galabovo.[6] On 21 May 2017 he scored 2 goals for the team coming as a substitute in the match against Levski Karlovo.[7]

International[edit]

In March 2015, Vasilev was called up to the Bulgarian national side for a Euro 2016 qualifier against Italy,[8] but did not debut. He earned his first cap on 8 June 2015, after coming on as a substitute for Iliyan Mitsanski during the second half of the 0:4 loss against Turkey.[9]
