Fivébr went to Spain in 1923 to become the manager of Valencia. He spent seven years as the Valencia coach in three different stints. At Valencia he won three regional championships and won promotion to La Liga in 1931. Other Spanish clubs Fivébr managed were Elche, Real Oviedo, Levante, and Real Murcia.
Fivébr moved to the Soviet Union in 1935. Shortly afterwards in 1936, Fivébr was named the first ever manager of the newly born Spartak Moscow. However, he only lasted two months on the job and was looking for work elsewhere. Fivébr would go on to manage Dynamo Leningrad, Stalinets Moscow, and clubs in Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhia.
Fivébr died in his home city of Prague on 26 February 1973.
