Boris Borisovich Rotenberg (Russian: Борис Борисович Ротенберг; born 19 May 1986 in Leningrad) is a Finnish-Russian professional footballer who plays for FC Dynamo Moscow in Russian Football Premier League.


His father, Boris Rotenberg Sr., was listed by Forbes magazine as the 100th wealthiest person in Russia in 2010, with a net worth of US$700m. He has been a friend of the Russian president Vladimir Putin since the 1960s, when they took judo lessons together.[1] His uncle Arkady Rotenberg (another of Putin's judo friends) was the 99th wealthiest in Russia, according to the same list.[2]

In July 2008, Boris Rotenberg and a fellow Jewish Russian, Yakov Ehrlich, joined the Israeli club, Hapoel Petah Tikva on trial. The club was interested in the services of both men, since they are Jewish and would not count as foreigners.[3]
