Pavel Kovachev (Bulgarian: Павел Ковачев; born 27 July 1987 in Stara Zagora) is a Bulgarian footballer who plays for Lokomotiv Plovdiv as a defender.


Kovachev started his career in his hometown in the youth teams of Beroe Stara Zagora. In 2007 he was sold to the Lithuanian side FBK Kaunas.

After a year there, he returned to Bulgaria after he caught the eye of the CSKA Sofia scouts and signed with "The Armymen". He made his debut with CSKA in the last game of the 2008–09 season in the Bulgarian "A" Professional Football Group in a match against Lokomotiv Mezdra. CSKA Sofia won the game by 2:1.

In June 2009 Kovachev returned to his first club, signing a contract for two years.
