A former midfielder, he was often considered Russia's best playmaker in the late 1990s and early 2000s, along with Spartak Moscow's Egor Titov, partly because he is two-footed and has a wide range of passing. He is also a renowned set-piece taker and possesses a fierce, stinging shot.
Loskov is the only individual to have played in all 21 Russian seasons since the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, with 20 of those seasons having been in the Russian Premier League. At one time, Loskov held the record for most appearances in Russian Premier League history (since surpassed by Sergei Semak), and continues to hold Lokomotiv club records for appearances and goals since the formation of the Russian Premier League. He is considered to be a cult figure amongst Lokomotiv fans.
Loskov attended Torpedo Football School in Kurgan in 1983. He moved to Rostov-on-Don football school in 1990 and signed for Rostselmash in 1991. He became a notable midfielder, and Lokomotiv Moscow have shown interest in him, signing a preliminary contract in early 1996. However, Loskov decided to spend one more year with the Rostov club.
In 1997, Loskov transferred to Lokomotiv Moscow. He achieved significant success with the club, winning two Russian Cups, two Russian championships, and becoming the league top goalscorer twice. He played over 200 league matches for Lokomotiv, scoring 100 goals in the Russian Premier League and is the captain of the club since 2006. His high standard of performances has always attracted interest from leading European clubs like Monaco and Tottenham Hotspur. In Europe, Lokomotiv reached the Cup Winner's Cup semi-finals twice (1997–98 and 1998–99) and the Champions League second round (2003–04). Despite being one of the Russian Premier League's most consistent players and contributing with many assists, goals and inspirational performances for Lokomotiv Moscow, he has never showed his best for Russia only managing 25 appearances and 2 goals.
Back to Lokomotiv
On 27 July 2010, Loskov began his second spell with Lokomotiv. Moreover, Loskov would once again play with the symbolic number 10.
Second return to Lokomotiv
On 24 February 2017, he signed with Lokomotiv as a player once again until the end of the 2016–17 Russian Premier League season. He started his farewell match as a captain on 13 May 2017 in a game against FC Orenburg before being ceremoniously substituted after 13 minutes of play.
