Considered a Botev Plovdiv legend, where spent the vast majority of his playing career, Hvoynev also represented Loko Sofia, CSKA Sofia and Maritsa Plovdiv. Outside of Bulgaria, he donned the shirt of Alki (Cyprus) and La Valletta (Malta), becoming champion with the latter. In 2005, Hvoynev relocated to Baltimore, United States, where he has been coaching youth teams.[3]
