Buryak played for a number of teams in the Soviet Union, most notably for Dynamo Kyiv, of which he was also the sporting manager.[6] As a player he had a tremendous impact on his team, similar to what Pavel Nedvěd or Zinedine Zidane had on theirs. Buryak has coached the Ukrainian national football team.[7][8][9]

In 1979 Buryak played couple of games for Ukraine at the Spartakiad of the Peoples of the USSR.[10]
