Antoni Ivanov Zdravkov (born 20 August 1964) is a Bulgarian former professional footballer and currently manager.

As a defender, he enjoyed spells at Levski Sofia, Lokomotiv Sofia, Yantra Gabrovo, Marítimo, Nacional, Benfica Castelo Branco, Velbazhd Kyustendil and Septemvri Sofia. He was capped by Bulgaria 3 times. He retired as a player in January 2001 at the age of 36. On 7 April 2013, while coaching Botev Vratsa in a match against CSKA Sofia, Zdravkov attracted controversy after he contested a refereeing decision in an unconventional way - by showing a red card to the match official and attempting to tear the referee's cards. He was subsequently sent to the stands and banned for one match.[1][2]

On 19 March 2014, while coaching Levski Sofia quit after defeat by Botev Plovdiv in the quarter-finals of the Bulgarian Cup.[3] In late October 2014, Zdravkov was appointed as manager of the Bulgaria U21 national team.[4]
