He was expected to be back in play for the next season. On 30 August 2009, Manchev scored the third goal in the 4:0 home win against Lokomotiv Mezdra in his first game back from injury after coming on as a substitute for Rui Miguel. Manchev is a CSKA Sofia's fans' favourite. Although he was injured most of the season 2008–09, in which he played only 4 matches, he scored 4 goals and made a few assists, so on 16 June 2009 it was said that in the next few days he would sign a new contract, which would make him a CSKA player for the next two years. After all he signed a new one year contract on 24 July 2009. In the summer 2010 Manchev was transferred to Akademik Sofia, but did not make any appearances in official matches for the team. In February 2012, Manchev signed a contract with Loko Sofia. He scored two goals in his return debut to help his team to a 2:0 win over Loko Plovdiv on 5 March 2012.
