Dmitri Aleksandrovich Galiamin (Russian: Дмитрий Александрович Галямин; born 8 January 1963) is a Russian retired footballer who played as a defender.

Club career[edit]

Galiamin was born in Moscow. He started playing with hometown's PFC CSKA Moscow, being an automatic first-choice from his second season onwards and helping the team to the double in his final year, 1991.

Aged 28, Galiamin moved abroad, signing with Spanish club RCD Español,[1] managing to appear sparingly during two La Liga seasons and being relegated in his second – he became a starter in 1993–94, helping the Catalans immediately return to the top level.

In the 1995 summer, due to constant injuries, Galiamin retired from the game at 32, after one season with CP Mérida (Spain, second level). In the following decade, already back in his country, he took up coaching, starting with FC Dynamo Saint Petersburg then successively managing FC Kristall Smolensk, FC Khimki, FC Tom Tomsk, FC Anzhi Makhachkala, FC Spartak Nizhny Novgorod and FC Master-Saturn Yegoryevsk; in 2002, he served as Saint Petersburg's director of football, occupying that position six years later at FC Saturn Moscow Oblast.

International career[edit]

During four years, Galiamin represented three national teams – Soviet Union, CIS and Russia – earning a total of 19 caps. With the latter, he was picked for the 1994 FIFA World Cup, playing in the second half of the 1–3 group stage defeat against Sweden.[2]
