Bardon rejoins Levski Sofia

SOFIA - French midfielder Cedric Bardon has rejoined Levski Sofia from last season Champions League surprise package Anorthosis Famagusta, the Bulgarian champions said on Friday. Bardon, 32, who was instrumental in helping Levski become the first Bulgarian team to reach the Champions League's group stage during his first spell at the Sofia-based club, has signed a two-year contract. "I decided to return because I'll have the chance to play in the Champions League for a third time," said the much-travelled Bardon. Levski face the winner of the tie between San Marino's Tre Fiori and Andorra's UE Sant Julia in the Champions League's second qualifying round later this month.
