Oleh Anatoliyovych Husev (born 25 April 1983) is a Ukrainian football midfielder for Dynamo Kyiv and the Ukrainian national football team. He is a winger who can also play right full-back.

Club career[edit]

Dynamo Kyiv[edit]

He transferred to Dynamo in the summer of 2003. Following his strong display in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, Husev was linked with a move to French side Olympique Lyonnais.[2] However, Dynamo Kyiv President Ihor Surkis stated that Husev, along with fellow players Artem Milevskiy and Ruslan Rotan, are "the future of Dynamo Kyiv".[3]

On 30 March 2014 Husev suffered a knee to the head from goalkeeper Denys Boyko (on loan from Dynamo Kyiv to Dnipro) grabbing a ball in midair, this collision knocked him to the ground, where he laid motionless for a few seconds before one of the Dnipro midfielders, Jaba Kankava, ran over to open Husev's mouth and moved his tongue to allow Husev to breathe. Kankava is credited with possibly saving Husev's life. [4][5]
