Andrei Kanchelskis

Where is Andrei Kanchelskis now?

After a successful Barclays Premier League career with Manchester United and Everton, Andrei Kanchelskis called time on his career in 2007 back in his native Russia with Krylia Sovetov.

A couple of months after hanging up his boots he was appointed sporting director of Russian club FC Nosta Novotroitsk.

After Kanchelski’s team were relegated to the third division he joined FC Torpedo-ZIL Moscow as manager.

He left this post in 2011 to manage FC Ufa but left in 2012 due to unspecified reasons.

Andrei Kanchelskis spent time as assistant manager at FC Volga Nizhny Novgorod before taking on the managerial post at Latvian side FC Jurmala in 2014.

Unfortunately he was sacked later that year after failing to keep the club from getting relegated.

In January 2016, Kanchelskis was appointed as manager of head coach of Russian third tier club Solyaris Moscow but was sacked after only three months when he failed to achieve promotion.

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.


Andrei Kanchelskis #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.
