Many outsiders would be surprised by Ludogorets Razgrad winning thier first Bulgarian Championship and the league/cup double after just being promoted to the league. Although the reality is they are another example of a deep pocketed businessman influencing a league, Kiril Domuschiev bought the club and then brought in influencial players such as Gargorov, Barthe, Genchev, Dyakov, Golubovic, Guldan, Stoyanov and Marcelinho. Ludogorets won the championship narrowly beating out CSKA Sofia by one point. CSKA were lead by the league most exciting player in 2011-2012 Brazilian Aluisio "Junior" Moraes who has been sold this summer to Metalurg Donetsk in Ukraine for €2M. Other intersting prospects from this season included 20-year-old Georgi Milanov and 21-year-old goalkeeper Plamen Iliev.
