Coaching careerEdit

In 2009 Dzhambazki became manager of Montana, after their former manager Stevica Kuzmanovski was released.[1] He was in charge of the team for two years and managed to stabilize the team and ensure their place in A PFG which was a huge success for Montana. On 2 June 2011 he decided to leave the club, stating "I have other plans for my future".[2] He spent a brief period as manager of Botev Vratsa and Litex. On 6 June 2012 he was appointed as head coach of Montana for the third time in his career.[3] On 26 May 2015, Dzhambazki was confirmed as the new manager of Botev Vratsa.[4] On 4 October 2016, Dzhambazki was appointed as interim manager of Montana.[5] He resigned on 17 April 2017, following a 3–4 home defeat by Slavia Sofia.[6] On 3 May 2017, he was appointed as manager of Third League club Kariana Erden.[7]

In August 2018, Dzhambazki was banned for one year and fined 1,500 levs after an incident in a game against Strumska Slava in which he attacked the referee and his assistant.[8]
