Yordan Minev started his career in home town Pazardzhik in local team Hebar. Between 2001 and 2003, Minev played in PFC Belasitsa from Petrich. Then, from January 2004 until June 2004 he played in Rodopa from Smolyan. He came to PFC Botev Plovdiv in 2005. He signed with the Bulgarian champion CSKA Sofia in January 2009. Minev gradually established himself as the first choice rightback in the team after Luboslav Penev's appointment as manager. On 23 May 2009, Minev received a second yellow card in the redmen's match against Lokomotiv Sofia. Minev was released from CSKA in March 2011, as he was unable to stake a claim to first choice defender status under head coach Milen Radukanov. In May 2011, Minev signed a contract with Ludogorets Razgrad. On 26 September 2013, he was alleged to have failed a doping test by FIFA (in reality the medical substances had been legally administered by a doctor), but was almost immediately cleared of any wrongdoing.
Yordan Minev made his debut for the national side on 19 November 2008 in the 1:6 loss against Serbia in a friendly match, which was also Savo Milosevic's farewell appearance. He played over the course of the last 20 minutes of the game, during which Bulgaria did not concede. In October 2011, he was recalled to the national team by caretaker manager Mihail Madanski for the Euro 2012 qualifier against Wales, but remained an unused substitute for the match. Minev played as a starter for the first time on 26 May 2012 (alongside his twin brother Veselin Minev), in the 2:1 away win over the Netherlands in an exhibition game. He was an everpresent part of the Bulgarian defense during the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
