Bukarev was honoured as Footballer of the Year of Varna for 2002.
On the club level, Bukarev has played for PFC Haskovo (1997–1998), Akademik Sofia (1998), CSKA Sofia (1998–2002), Cherno More Varna (2002–2003) and Levski Sofia (2003–2006). He ended his career as a 27-year-old at the end of the 2005-2006 season, because of a serious injury from which he recovered, though the medical advice was not to risk continuing to train in accordance with the requirements for professionals.
In June 2009 he had been appointed as an assistant coach of Velislav Vutsov in Slavia Sofia.
On 31 May 2010 Bukarev left Slavia Sofia after the departure of manager Velislav Vutsov. On 4 August 2017, following the departure of Nikolay Mitov, Asen Bukarev was appointed as caretaker manager of Levski Sofia. He moved back to assistant role on 8 August, following the appointment of Delio Rossi as manager. In late December 2019, he was appointed as manager of Vitosha Bistritsa.
