Stefan Velev (Bulgarian: Стефан Велев; born 2 May 1989) is a Bulgarian footballer who plays as a midfielder for Slavia Sofia.[2]

Career[edit]

Born in Sofia, Velev played for Septemvri as a schoolboy, before joining Slavia Sofia. But he found it difficult to break into the first team due to the consistency of Slavčo Georgievski and Pavle Popara.

In June 2008 Velev signed a two-year contract with Lokomotiv Stara Zagora. He made his B PFG and Lokomotiv debut on 9 August in a home 1–0 against Shumen, scoring the goal of the win.

On 13 March 2017, Velev signed a 1 12-year contract with Slavia Sofia.[3]

International career[edit]

Velev earned his first cap for Bulgaria on 29 May 2012, after coming on as a second-half substitute in the 0–2 loss against Turkey in an exhibition game.
