Just two days after winning the FA Cup for historic treble with New Radiant, SC Velizar Popov left the Maldive champion after a great season with the Islanders to take on former champion of Oman- Sur Sports Club. On October the 7th he signed a one-year contract until the end of the season 2013 / 2014. Popov made his debut in one of the most attractive derby matches in the Omani League. He defeated the local rivals Al Oruba with 3-0. Whitin 3 months Velizar Popov managed to let Sur Club climb from the 10th to 3th position in the standings and he registered the best attack in the league. As a consequence, for the first time in the history of the club five players from Sur Club became already part of the Olympic national team of Oman.
