Dmitri Yevgenyevich Torbinski (Russian: Дмитрий Евгеньевич Торбинский; born 28 April 1984 in Norilsk) is a professional association footballer who currently plays as a midfielder for Rubin Kazan. He is a winger known for his pace and accurate crosses.

Club career[edit]

He began as a futsal player, but moved into football and signed with Spartak's youth academy at a young age. He toiled for several years in the reserve team before making his first team debut in 2002. He continued as a part-time player in the squad in 2003, but was limited by a serious injury in 2004, making only one appearance.

Like Vladimir Bystrov and Dmitry Sytchev, Torbinsky is also known for his blistering pace and impressive change of speed which makes him very hard to stop. Hence, being a target for various clubs in Europe.

In 2005, he was sent to Spartak Chelyabinsk on loan in order to get regular playing time and has since returned to the Moscow side, having recovered from his injuries. Torbinski left the club on a free transfer at the end of 2007 season for Lokomotiv Moscow.
