Spasov moved to Portugal in December 1986, and remained in the nation for the following seven years, representing five teams. In the 1989–90 season, he scored a career-best 34 goals for F.C. Paços de Ferreira, which however failed to promote from the second division; in the top flight, he played with S.C. Farense, S.C. Beira-Mar and Paços.
In June 1994, after one season in his homeland with former team Cherno More, Spasov retired from football at nearly 36 years of age.
Spasov started managing in Portugal and Spain, in both countries at amateur level. In 2003, he was appointed at PFC Marek Dupnitsa in his country, switching to the Republic of Macedonia and FK Bregalnica Štip the following season.
From 2006 and during four years, Spasov worked with former club Cherno More, as assistant, head coach and scout. In 2011, he returned to Bregalnica. He replaced Aleksandar Stankov at Cherno More following the sailors' unconvincing start to the 2014-15 A PFG season.
