Anatoliy Fedorovich Byshovets (Russian: Анатолий Фёдорович Бышовец; born 23 April 1946) is a Soviet-Russian football manager and former Soviet international striker. He played his entire professional career with club side Dynamo Kyiv. He won Olympic gold as a coach with the Soviet team at the 1988 Summer Olympics. He was also a manager of the USSR, Russia, and South Korea national teams. At the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, he managed the South Korean U-23 team. He is one of the most successful modern Russian coaches.


Byshovets played for the youth team of FC Dynamo Kyiv, then for their senior team in 1963-1973. Byshovets won the Soviet championship four times (1966, 1967, 1968, 1971) and the Soviet Cup twice (1964, 1966) with them. Byshovets scored four goals for the Soviet Union in the 1970 FIFA World Cup.


After finishing his playing career in 1973 Byshovets worked in Dynamo Kyiv's football school. In 1988, he won the Olympic gold with the Soviet team. He has also managed various clubs and three national teams (USSR, Russia, and South Korea).[1]

Recent events[edit]

After having been for one year out of work Byshovets became coach of FC Lokomotiv Moscow. In 2007 Lokomotiv with Byshovets won the Russian Cup which brought Byshovets a more positive image from both the press and the fans. But despite the club's Champions League ambitions under Byshovets Lokomotiv was underachieving in the Russian Premier League. Next day after the end of 2007 season he was sacked.[2]

In October 2009, he was hired as a consultant by FC Kuban Krasnodar. He left Kuban just over a month later, on 17 November 2009.
