BBC Sport - Stiliyan Petrov tells Football Focus he feels 'alive again'

I feel alive again - Petrov

Stiliyan Petrov tells John Hartson he feels "alive again" after winning his fight against acute leukaemia.

The former Bulgaria and Aston Villa captain ended his career last May to fight the disease, but has recently been turning out for a local five-a-side team and is enjoying playing football again.

Petrov joined Celtic from CSKA Sofia in 1999 and spent seasons at Celtic Park before joining Villa in 2006 for £6.5m.
