Like many other referees Angelov's football career ended by injury, so he decided to take up the whistle like his father and uncle who were both international referees. He was off the FIFA panel at the start of 2012.

u17

At the age of 27 Angelov was the youngest referee active at EURO 2008 u17 in Turkey. He is a UEFA Category 3 referee.

Suspended

April 2010 Angelov was suspended for the third time in three years by the Bulgarian FA. This time for 4 matches. The Fa thought he awarded a penalty which he shouldn't have and he sent off one player too many. Apparently Angelov seems to be a little too biased towards Levski Sofia. Mind you, this is all hearsay and Bulgaria, a country whose football we perhaps should write between brackets: "Bulgarian Football".
