Valeri Abramidze (Georgian: ვალერი აბრამიძე; born 17 January 1980 in Tbilisi) is a retired Georgian footballer. He also holds Russian citizenship.

Spartak Moscow[edit]

Abramidze joined FC Spartak Moscow during summer 2002, signed 5-year contract.[1] He made 15 league appearances for Spartak, and 4 2002 UEFA Champions League as well, scoring no goals.

Being loaned out to FC Uralan Elista in 2003, he left Spartak for FC Khimki in 2004.

Khazar scandal[edit]

During 2007 summer mid-season, Abramidze had major issues leaving FK Khazar Lenkoran. While Abramidze was sure he had signed one-year contract in 2006 and now he is free agent, FK Khazar Lenkoran authorities told that he'd signed contract that is 2-year long. The problem seemed to be with contract in Azeri language while Abramidze had not knew Azeri and had not have a translated version.[2]

As a result, Abramidze had lost a lot of time while trying to be transferred to Anzhi, so the club could not include him into the signing list for Russian First Division in 2007. That's why Abramidze was out of football during from September 2007 to the season 2008.
