Valeri Georgievich Karpin (Russian: Валерий Георгиевич Карпин; born 2 February 1969) is a Russian retired professional association footballer who played as midfielder, and the current coach of Spanish club RCD Mallorca.

Playing career[edit]

At club level, Karpin has played for Fakel Voronezh (1989), Spartak Moscow (1990–94), Real Sociedad (1994–96 and 2002–05), Valencia CF (1996–97), and Celta Vigo (1997–2002). He retired at the end of the 2004–05 season with Real Sociedad.

Russia/CIS[edit]

For Russia, Karpin has been capped 72 times, scoring 17 goals (he was also capped once for the CIS). He scored Russia's first goal after the breakup of the Soviet Union, in a 2–0 win against Mexico on 17 August 1992. Karpin played for Russia at the 1994 World Cup, Euro 96, and the 2002 World Cup.

Managerial career[edit]

In 2003 he took up Estonian citizenship, keeping the Russian one.[3] In August 2008, Karpin was named as Director General of Spartak Moscow, replacing Sergei Shavlo. In April 2009, following a poor run of results, he replaced Michael Laudrup as caretaker manager of the club. On 18 April 2011, Karpin declared resignation from his position following one of the worse starts in club history. Eventually, he continued working as a manager up to the end of 2011-12 season. After the sacking of the newly appointed manager Unai Emery on 25 November 2012, Karpin took the responsibility of caretaker manager up until the end of the year. He later officially became the team's coach again and wasn't the caretaker anymore.[4]

On 18 March 2014 Karpin was relieved from his duties, after exiting the Russian Cup to third division FC Tosno and drawing with top flight's bottom side FC Anzhi Makhachkala.[5] On 12 August he was appointed at the helm of RCD Mallorca.[6]

Retirement[edit]

Karpin in 2009.

In 2007 Karpin became the holder of road bicycle racing team Karpin-Galicia. He also owns a real estate company with former Celta Vigo team-mate Michel Salgado.

In 2009 he was part of the Russia squad that won the 2009 Legends Cup.
