Born in Bitola, Hristov started out with his hometown club Pelister, before transferring to Partizan in 1994. He spent the following three seasons with the Black-Whites, winning back-to-back championships in 1996 and 1997. In June 1997, Hristov was sold to English club Barnsley for a fee of £1.5 million. He scored 8 league goals in his debut season with the Tykes, as the club suffered relegation from the Premiership. In the following two years, Hristov missed a lot of games due to a knee injury, before eventually leaving the club in 2000. He subsequently joined Dutch club NEC Nijmegen. He moved to fellow Eredivisie side FC Zwolle in summer 2003.
Hristov was capped 48 times for Macedonia, netting a goal on his debut in a 2–2 draw against Armenia on 10 May 1995. He scored a total of 16 goals for the national team, making him the second-highest scorer in the history of Macedonian football, only behind Goran Pandev. His final international was a March 2005 FIFA World Cup qualification match against the Netherlands.
In October 2011, Hristov was appointed manager of Metalurg Skopje. He was released by the club in late 2012.
