Volyn Lutsk

Anatoliy Tymoshchuk started his career playing for his hometown team Volyn Lutsk, having risen through the ranks at the team. Following two successful seasons, the player began to attract attention from bigger clubs.

Shakhtar Donetsk

In 1997 at age 18, Tymoshchuk was bought from Volyn by Shakhtar. At Shakhtar, Tymoshchuk was a key member of the team which won three Ukrainian Premier League titles, three Ukrainian Cups, and a Ukrainian Super Cup. His time with Shakhtar is credited with establishing him as a great midfielder in Europe.[1]

In 2006, having captained Shakhtar for a number of years, Tymoshchuk became linked with a string of European clubs, including Juventus, Feyenoord, Celtic, and Roma.[2]

Zenit St. Petersburg

Tymoschuk training with Zenit St. Petersburg.

On 27 February 2007, Tymoshchuk transferred to Zenit St. Petersburg for a fee reported to be about €15 million.[3] He was soon named as the new captain of the team.[4]

His first season at the club ended in success, with Zenit winning the Russian Premier League title for the first time in the club's history. This trophy constituted the club's first league title since its 1984 Soviet Top League triumph.[5] At the end of the season, Tymoshchuk was included in the annual list of the best 33 players of the Russian Premier League,[6] and was also voted as league player of the year by popular sports magazine Sport-Express.[7]

After FC Zenit Saint Petersburg won the championship title, cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko known as a fan of the team, waved Zenit shirt with Tymoshchuk's name on it while in space. Zenit became the first team to have its uniform shown in space.[8]

During the 2007–08 European season, Tymoshchuk captained Zenit to the 2008 UEFA Cup, in which they defeated Scottish Premier League club Rangers 2–0 in the final.[9] The club then went on to claim the 2008 UEFA Super Cup in a 2–1 victory over Manchester United.[10]

Bayern Munich

In February 2009, Uli Hoeneß, the general manager of Bayern Munich, announced Tymoshchuk had agreed with Bayern to join that club.[11] Initially, Zenit announced that there was no agreement yet between the two clubs, but on 18 February, Bayern announced that Tymoshchuk would join the club in July 2009, in order to let Tymoshchuk play for Zenit until the summer.[12] He played his last games with Zenit on 14 June 2009.

Tymoshchuk officially joined Bayern on 1 July 2009 with a contract that will expire on 30 June 2012.[13] The transfer fee was undisclosed but German media reports put the deal at €11 million.[14]

Tymo played his first game for Bayern Munich against AC Milan during the 2009 Audi Cup, coming on as a second half substitute. He also started in the final against Manchester United where he was substituted off in the 77th minute. Bayern won the match 7-6 on penalties.[15] He scored his first goal for Bayern Munich against Juventus in the 2009-10 UEFA Champions League.

International career

Since his 2000 debut, Tymoshchuk has become a key member of the Ukrainian national team. He gained recognition for his performance during the 2006 FIFA World Cup in which Ukraine reached the quarter-finals, earning a Man of the Match award during Ukraine's win over Tunisia.[16]

Tymoshchuk has been described as one of the catalysts for Ukraine's first FIFA World Cup appearance.[17] He is currently the vice-captain of the team, captaining in the absence of Andriy Shevchenko.

Personal life

Anatoliy Tymoshchuk is married to Nadiya Tymoshchuk.[18] The couple met in his hometown Lutsk while living in the same neighborhood.

In June 2008 Tymoshchuk was awarded the title of "Honorary citizen of Lutsk"[19]

His favorite player is Lothar Matthäus.[20] He is also a fan of the Ukrainian band Okean Elzy and Russian painter Mikhail Vrubel. He is an avid collector of wines, t-shirts, and icons.[21]

Tymoshchuks lucky number is four "It brings me luck".[20]

Tymoshchuk and his father has since 2000 organised tournaments, the International Anatoliy Tymoshchuk Junior Cup, for children from Ukraine and neighbour states in the city of Volhynia, Ukraine. The winners get cups and money awards. The mission of the tournament was to encourage children to continue their football training by giving them a chance to participate in a real competition.[22][23]
