Aleksandr Genrikhovich Borodyuk (Template:Lang-ru) (born 30 November 1962 in Voronezh) is a Russian football manager and former international player[1] for USSR (playing one match in 1990 FIFA World Cup) and Russia (appearing twice in the 1994 edition).[2]


Borodyuk attended the Fakel football school and spent one season with their senior team. He was conscripted to play for Dynamo Vologda and transferred to FC Dynamo Moscow a year later. When the conscription term ended, Borodyuk stayed in Moscow and later achieved the rank of junior lieutenant. With Dynamo he won the Soviet Cup in 1984 and became the top scorer of the Soviet League in 1986 and 1988. Valery Gazzaev, Igor Dobrovolsky and Igor Kolyvanov were among his teammates.

In 1988 Borodyuk became Olympic champion. After Anatoly Byshovets became the manager of Dynamo, Borodyuk lost his place in the starting line-up and moved to Germany to play for FC Schalke 04, achieving promotion to the Bundesliga and ranking among the club league's topscorers from 1989–1993. In January 1994, however, he moved to SC Freiburg and finished third in the league in 1994–95, although he appeared in only seven league contests. In October 1995, Borodyuk changed sides again, joining second division's Hannover 96. He scored the 30,000th goal in the Bundesliga.

Borodyuk returned to Russia at the age of 34 and was invited to FC Lokomotiv Moscow by Yuri Semin. With Lokomotiv he reached the semifinal of the UEFA Cup and won the Russian Cup in 1997. After stints with Torpedo-ZIL Moscow and Krylia Sovetov Samara, he retired aged 38, as a member of the Grigory Fedotov club.

As a manager, Borodyuk began working as assistant coach, first with Aleksandr Tarkhanov in Krylia Sovetov, then with Georgi Yartsev in the national team.

He was caretaker manager of the Russian national team from 6 December 2005 to June 2006, also serving as manager of Russia U21 team from December 2005 to February 2007. In February 2007 he became Guus Hiddink's assistant, as Boris Stukalov took the reins of the U-21s. When Hiddink was replaced by Dick Advocaat in 2010, Borodyuk remained the assistant with the team.

On 28 December 2015, Borodyuk was appointed as manager of FC Kairat,[3] resigning on 5 April 2016 after a poor start to the season.[4]
