Andrei Kanchelskis

Where is Andrei Kanchelskis now?

After a successful Premier League career with Manchester United and Everton, Andrei Kanchelskis hung up his boots in 2007 back in his native Russia with Krylia Sovetov.

Playing for 18 years all across the globe in countries such as Scotland, Italy and Saudi Arabia, he finished his career having made over 400 appearances for 11 clubs.

He amassed a decent haul of trophies during his career including the Premier League twice, the FA Cup, the League Cup, the Scottish Premier League twice and the Scottish Cup four times.

Kanchelskis also represented the Russia national team on 59 occasions and was a part of the squad for the 1994 FIFA World Cup finals and the 1992 and 1996 UEFA European Championships.

Upon retiring from playing, Kanchelskis joined Russian side Nosta Novotroitsk as sporting director before starting his managerial career in 2009 with FC Torpedo-ZIL Moscow.

He left after a couple of seasons to manage FC Ufa in 2011 before joining Latvian side FC Jurmala in 2014 in a short-lived spell which saw him sacked at the end of the season after suffering relegation.

In January 2016, Kanchelskis made a return to football when he was appointed manager of Russian third-tier club Solyaris Moscow but was sacked after only three months when he failed to achieve promotion.

He is currently manager of Uzbek side Navbahor Namangan.

Back to EvertonManchester United


Andrei Kanchelskis was a guest on Sky Sports programme The Fantasy Football Club in November 2015 where he picked the eleven best players he had ever played with in the #One2Eleven section of the show.

#One2Eleven (4-4-2 Formation)

GK – Peter Schmeichel – the best goalkeeper in the world at the time. Professional, massive and always shouting at his players during a game which was excellent.

RB – Volodymyr Bezsonov – played with him at Dynamo Kiev. Could play in any position in defence or midfield.

LB – Denis Irwin – a good defender with good vision and passing. Nobody played like Denis Irwin.

CB – Oleg Luzhny – a very, very strong man who was brilliant when he played for Arsenal.

CB – Steve Bruce – after Bryan Robson, he was United’s real captain. Not very quick but a good mind and very, very strong.

RM – Anders Limpar – very quick and skilful. Also good technically and had great vision.

LM – Ryan Giggs – a very nice person who was quick, had good vision and passing.

CM – Roy Keane – strong and clever, the best midfielder I have seen in my life. An absolutely brilliant player.

CM – Eric Cantona – a very good player but a little bit strange.

Forward – Gabriel Batistuta – I played with him at Fiorentina and every season he would score at least 20 goals in Serie A.

Forward – Mark Hughes – a very good, powerful striker who scored a lot of goals against the top 10 teams.
