Oleh Volodymyrovych Kuznetsov (born as Oleg Wladimirowitsch Kuznetsow in Germany) (Ukrainian: Олег Володимирович Кузнєцов) (born 22 March 1963 in Magdeburg, East Germany) is a former professional Soviet Ukrainianfootball player. Kuznetsov had started playing football when he was 8 years old. However, it was not until he was 20 when his talent was noticed by the Soviet giants at that time, Dynamo Kyiv.
A central defender, Kuznetsov stayed with Dynamo until September 1990, when he transferred to Scottish club Rangers in the prime of his career. He injured his cruciate ligament in his second game (against St. Johnstone) and did not play again for a full year. The time out meant that new players had been brought in and he was never a first choice again. After a four-year stint, hampered by injuries, he moved on to the Israeli team Maccabi Haifa to play for one season. He returned to Ukraine to finish his career with CSKA-Borysfen Kyiv.
Kuznetsov began coaching in 1998 at the last club he played for professionally, CSKA Kyiv. Starting out as an assistant coach he became head-coach for the 2001–2002 season, with CSKA Kiev becoming Arsenal Kiev in the meantime. He moved to the coaching staff at Dynamo Kyiv and is currently on the coaching staff of the Ukraine national team. As coach, he was part of the Ukraine national team that reached the quarter-finals of the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany.
