Career[edit]

Spartak Pleven[edit]

Born in Pleven, Tsvetanov began his career playing for his local club Spartak.[2] On 9 September 2006, at the age of 16 he made his professional debut in the West B PFG, playing the second half of a 3–0 defeat to Minyor Pernik. He scored his first goal on 7 April 2007 against Hebar Pazardzhik in a 2–0 home league victory. He made 15 league appearances, scoring three goals during his debut season.[3] The following season Tsvetanov scored four goals in 12 matches.[4]

Litex Lovech[edit]

In January 2008, Tsvetanov joined Litex Lovech on a four-and-a-half year contract for an undisclosed fee. He made his competitive debut in the A PFG in a 0–0 draw against CSKA Sofia on 1 March 2008. He played for 45 minutes.

On 12 July 2011 Tsvetanov assisted Svetoslav Todorov twice in a 2–1 away win over Mogren Budva in the second qualifying round of the 2011–12 Champions League.[5]

Botev Plovdiv[edit]

After six years in Lovech, Tsvetanov surprisingly signed a two-year contract with Botev Plovdiv as a free agent on 21 August 2014.[6] He made a debut in A Grupa with the yellow-black jersey three days later when he came on as 73rd-minute substitute in a match with Slavia Sofia which Botev Plovdiv won with 2-0.[7]

Momchil Tsvetanov played in 14 games in A Grupa and 3 games for the Bulgarian Cup without scoring any goals and without making any assists.[8] He failed to impress and at the end of the season his contract was terminated by mutual agreement.[9]

CSKA Sofia[edit]

On 30 June 2015, Tsvetanov joined CSKA Sofia. He lost his first choice status when the team was reinstated to the A PFG.

Vereya[edit]

In July 2016, he signed a contract with newly promoted top division club Vereya.[10]
