Oleg Veretennikov (Russian: Олег Александрович Веретенников) (born January 5, 1970 in Revda, Sverdlovsk Oblast) is a professional association football coach and a former international footballer. He is the top goalscorer in the history of Russian Premier League, and holds several other goalscoring records. Currently, he is an assistant manager with FC Rotor Volgograd.[1]

Most of Veretennikov's successes have come with SC Rotor Volgograd, for whom he played in 1992–1999. During that time he scored 143 goals, which makes him the best goalscorer in the Russian Premier League history (the next best goalscorer, Dmitry Loskov, has 109 goals as of January 1, 2007). He has also become the season's top goalscorer three times (in 1995, 1997, and 1998), which is also an unbeaten record. Veretennikov also holds a record for the most goals scored in one season (25 in 1995). He is also one of only two players (along with Victor Panchenko) to score five goals in a league match (on April 4, 1998 against Shinnik).

Despite impressive goalsoring record, Oleg Veretennikov played only four unimportant matches for the national team.

In 2000–2001 Veretennikov had two short spells with foreign clubs, and then played in several First Division teams. In 2005 he returned to Rotor, playing in the Second Division. In 2009 he played in FC Volgograd. In the end of 2009 Veretennikov retired from playing and became a coach.

His son Pavel Veretennikov is a professional footballer now.
