Early career

Born in Razlog, but raised in Dobrinishte, Galchev started his career in the youth system of Pirin Blagoevgrad.[2] Then he was released by Pirin after failing to progress into their first team and joined amateur side Pirin Razlog.[3] In this period, along with his football career, he also worked as a lumberman.[4]

Pirin Blagoevgrad

In 2007, Galchev returned to Pirin Blagoevgrad and helped the team gain promotion to the B Group. In December 2008, Pirin merged with the other club of Blagoevgrad, which in season 2008–09 was a part of A Group. Galchev was selected to join unions club.

He quickly became part of the main team and until the end of 2008–09 season earned 15 appearances playing in the A PFG, scoring one goal.

On 7 August 2009, Galchev was announced as Pirin's new club captain.[5]

CSKA Sofia

On 12 January 2010, CSKA Sofia signed Galchev to a three-and-a-half-year deal.[6] He was given the number 18 shirt. On March 27, 2010, he played in his first Eternal Derby against Levski Sofia after coming on as a substitute during the second half of the game. He established himself as a key player in the midfield for CSKA. For the Reds Galchev appeared in 60 games, scoring three goals.

Dinamo București

On July 13, 2012, Galchev signed with Romanian Liga I side Dinamo București for two years with an option for a year extension.[7] As part of the deal, former CSKA Sofia striker Michel Platini returned to his previous club.

Botev Plovdiv

In early January 2013, Galchev returned to Bulgaria and signed a contract with Botev Plovdiv.[8]

Return to CSKA

In January 2014, Galchev rejoined CSKA Sofia, with the expectation of improved financial parameters for the next season.[9] During the 2014–15 A PFG season he has mostly seen action as a substitute. On 25 October 2014, he scored the third goal for his team in the 3–0 win over Levski Sofia in the Eternal Derby.[10]

International career

Galchev earned his first call-up to the Bulgaria national side in March 2011 for the Euro 2012 qualifier against Switzerland and the friendly match versus Cyprus, but was not selected to play in any of these games. He was also called up for the friendly against Hungary in February, 2012, but did not feature in the match.[11] Galchev made his debut on 29 May 2012, after coming on as a substitute in a 2–0 loss against Turkey in an exhibition game.[12]
