Aston Villa fans will be able
to munch on a special pie named in honour of their Bulgarian
captain Stiliyan Petrov, who is battling leukaemia, in the home
Premier League match against Sunderland.
The club said a percentage of proceeds from the pie, which
contains chicken, leek and Bulgarian kefta meatballs, will be
donated to the Cure Leukaemia charity.
The 32-year-old Petrov, who has more than 100 international
caps for Bulgaria, was diagnosed with acute leukaemia last month
and has started treatment at a London hospital.
The Bulgarian Football Union (BFU) dedicated this week's
round of the domestic championship, played between Tuesday and
Thursday, to Petrov with players wearing specially signed shirts
in support of him.
Several league matches have been stopped in the 19th minute,
Petrov's Villa shirt number, with the crowd applauding for a
Central defender fit enough to play in the Champions League final at Wembley
