In his club career, he played for the likes of CSKA Sofia, Real Betis and Rapid Vienna.

A statement read:

Trifon Ivanov will remain in the history of Bulgarian football as one of the best defenders. Before being a great player, Trifon was a great man with great heart and always ready to help. We all mourn the loss of a true friend. Rest in peace, Trifon.
