Vasil Iosifavich Khamutowski (Belarusian: Васіль Іосіфавіч Хамутоўскі, Russian: Василий Иосифович Хомутовский, Vasily Iosifovich Khomutovsky) (born 30 August 1978 in Minsk)[1] is a former Belarusian football goalkeeper and currently a coach.

Football career[edit]

He started his career in 1994 with Smena Minsk, a club from the Belarusian third division. Since 1995, he has been regularly transferring from one club to another and subsequently played for Ataka-Aura Minsk in 1996, BATE Borisov in 1998, Smena-BATE Minsk in the same year, again BATE Borisov in 1999 and then again Smena-BATE Minsk, also in 1999. In 2000, he moved to Torpedo-MAZ Minsk before transferring abroad for the first time in the summer of the same year, to German side Waldhof Mannheim, who played in the 2nd Bundesliga at the time.[2] However, he spent the entire season with the German team as the second-choice keeper and only made two league appearances.[3]

He went on to move to Russian side Dinamo Moskva in 2001, but soon moved to Volgar GP Astrakhan for the beginning of the 2002 season.[4] However, he only spent one half-season with the team before moving to Metalist Kharkiv for the 2002–2003 season.[5]

In the summer of 2003, he joined Romanian team Steaua Bucureşti on a free transfer, signing a contract until January 2007. He played three seasons for Steaua and won the Romanian league title twice. In early 2006, he left Romania and joined FC Tom Tomsk, signing a two-year contract.[6]

In January 2008, he joined FC Carl Zeiss Jena, a relegation-threatened side in the German Second Bundesliga, where he signed a contract until the end of the season with an automatic one-year extension in case the club managed to stay in the Second Bundesliga. He helped the team reach the semi-finals of the German Cup, where they were knocked out by Borussia Dortmund.

Following Carl Zeiss Jena's relegation to the 3. Fußball-Liga, he signed a two-year contract with FC Augsburg and was released on 30 June 2010.[7]

In March 2012, he came back to Romania, signing a contract for three months with Petrolul Ploiești.[8]

On 1 June 2013, he won the Romanian Cup 1–0 against CFR Cluj, playing in the final.


Khamutowski has been capped several times for Belarus. He was part of the team in their qualifying campaigns for the UEFA Euro 2004 and 2008 as well as the 2006 FIFA World Cup, appearing in a total of 10 qualifiers for the three tournaments.[9]
