Club

Oleh Protasov started playing soccer at the age of 8 years old in his hometown of Dnipropetrovsk in Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, where he played until 1987. In 1987, Protasov moved to play for the Soviet-Ukrainian football giants, Dynamo Kyiv. In all, in the Soviet Union, he won the Soviet Championship twice and was named Soviet Footballer of the Year in 1987. He scored 125 goals in the Soviet Championship, making him the 8th best scorer of all-time of the Championship.

Following the fall of the Soviet Union, Oleh Protasov got a chance to play abroad. In 1990, he joined Greek side Olympiacos Piraeus. Leaving Olympiakos in 1994, he played in Gamba Osaka, Veria FC, and finally Proodeftiki FC, from where he retired in 1999.

National

Protasov played for the USSR 68 times, including at the 1986 and 1990 FIFA World Cups, as well as Euro 88, where he scored two goals. He also played one game for the Ukraine national team, in 1994.

Coaching career

After retiring as a player, Protasov went into coaching, and led Olympiacos Piraeus to the Greek title in 2003. In 2005, he coached Romanian team Steaua Bucureşti.

Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk

In December 2005, Oleh Protasov returned in Ukraine to coach his hometown team, Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, after an impressive UEFA Cup performance with Steaua Bucureşti. Protasov left by his own choice and was an very good terms with the entire team and owners of the club.[1]

In his first 2005-06 season as Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk's coach, Oleh Protasov led the team to a 6th place finish in the Ukrainian Premier League. In the next, 2006-07 season, Protasov improved on this, finishing 4th in the league.

In the 2007-08 season his side unexpectedly led the title race ahead of the winter break, before a poor second half left his side in 4th once again. Dnipro sacked him on 29 of August 2008 after an embarrassing defeat from AC Bellinzona in UEFA cup qualification match.[2]

Kuban Krasnodar

After that, Protasov took over FC Kuban Krasnodar in the nearby region of Russia. Kuban had been recently derelegated to the Russian First League. Under Protasov's leadership, the club finished 2nd in the league, with an 8 point lead over their nearest competitors. This finish earned them right to be promoted to the Russian Premier League.

However FC Kuban was hard-hit by the Global financial crisis of 2008–2009, which greatly decreased the club's budget. In a mutual agreement with the club, Protasov left the club on November 19, 2008.[3]

Iraklis Thessaloniki

Then, he signed a two year deal worth 400,000 euro per annum with Iraklis Thessaloniki, starting from the summer of 2009.In Friday 30 of October, it was announced by Iraklis F.C. the termination of their contract, after 5 continual defeats in Super League and Greek Cup.
