Midfielder Nikola Gligorov has joined John Toshack in Xəzər from Lankaran

The Macedonian colony in Azerbaijan grew by one more player after Nikola Gligorov left Cypriot side Alki to join John Toshack who is the manager of Xəzər in Azerbaijan. Xəzər ended the season in third place of the relegation group in the Azeri league, or overall 9th place. However, they reached the Azeri Cup final and the club will participate in Europa League qualifications for the 2013/14 season.

John Toshack is their manager since March 2013 and he will have the opportunity to work with Gligorov once again, as he did during his spell as Macedonian national team manager.

Nikola Gligorov is on the Macedonian national team squad for the upcoming friendly matches against Sweden and Norway.  Gligorov has been a regular starter in defensive midfield, along with Muhamed Demiri, in manager Chedomir Janevski's preferred 4-2-3-1 formation.
