Serhiy Stanislavovych Rebrov (Ukrainian: Сергій Станіславович Ребров, born on 3 June 1974 in Horlivka, Donetsk Oblast) is a retired Ukrainian football forward turned midfielder, currently assistant coach at Dynamo Kyiv reserves team. Rebrov gained international fame as an attacking partner of Andriy Shevchenko at Dynamo Kyiv throughout the 1990s and remains top all-time scorer of the Ukrainian Premier League. He has been capped 75 times by Ukraine and played in the 2006 World Cup, the nation's first ever World Cup.

Club career

Rebrov joined Shakhtar Donetsk as a youth in 1990. In his debut 1991 season, then a 17-year-old, he scored 2 goals in 7 games in the USSR Premier League. In his second season, playing in the newly established Ukrainian Premier League, he became a joint 3rd goalscorer, catching the eye of Dynamo Kyiv scouts.

Dynamo Kyiv

Rebrov moved to Dynamo Kyiv in August 1992 and has since become the highest all-time scorer in the Ukrainian Premier League. His total tally in the league with Shakhtar and Dynamo is 123 goals in 261 games.

He scored several key goals in European competitions, notably in the 1997-98 and 1998-99 seasons of the UEFA Champions League, including a famous goal against Barcelona from a tight angle. Dynamo reached the Champions League semi-final in 1999 but lost to Bayern Munich on aggregate. In the 1999-2000 season Rebrov became a joint top scorer in the UEFA Champions League with 10 goals (including 2 goals in qualification games) as Dynamo progressed to the last sixteen before going out on head-to-head record against Real Madrid.

England

In June 2000 he was transferred to Tottenham Hotspur for £11 million,[1] but after the sacking of George Graham in March 2001, he was frozen out by new manager Glenn Hoddle. He went out on two consecutive loan spells to Fenerbahçe and subsequently signed a one year contract with West Ham United.[2] He scored once in the league for West Ham, the winner in a 3-2 win over Watford in November 2004.[3] He also scored once in the League Cup against Notts County.[4]

Dynamo Kyiv again

On 1 June 2005, Rebrov became a free agent after declining to re-sign and two days later he signed a new two-year contract with Dynamo Kyiv, with the option of a one year extension. In the new 2005-06 season, Rebrov became Dynamo's top scorer with 13 goals, two behind league joint top scorers Brandão and Okoduwa, despite playing in midfield. Rebrov also topped the league in points (goals plus assists) and was named player of the season according to a poll of team coaches and captains.

In July 2007 Rebrov became Dynamo captain. In the 2007-08 season he was getting less playing time, starting only 7 out of 18 matches before the winter break. His contribution in some games was heavily criticised by the press. It was reported that Rebrov could move to Arsenal Kyiv during the transfer window. However, under new coach Yuri Semin Rebrov started all games and was named best player at the close season Channel One Cup. In February 2008 Dynamo president Ihor Surkis stated that the club was planning talks with Rebrov with a view of extending his contract.[5] Shortly thereafter Rebrov received an offer of a two-year contract from Russian Premier League club Rubin Kazan.

Rubin Kazan

On 3 March 2008 Dynamo announced that Rebrov had signed a two-year contract with Rubin and would join the new club at the end of the season, in summer 2008.[6] With the Russian season starting in spring, Rubin eventually agreed a $1 million compensation with Dynamo for Rebrov's early release from his contract.[7] He was part of the team that won the Russian Premier League 2008 for the first time in Rubin's history, playing in midfield in 24 out of his team's 30 league matches and scoring 5 goals.

Retirement

Rebrov's retirement was announced on 20 July 2009. At the same time he became an assistant coach at Dynamo Kyiv reserves team.[8] During his career he played in various European Leagues with 423 games recorded and 145 goals netted. He averaged 0.343 goals per game. In the Ukrainian Premier League he played 267 games and scored 125 goals which is an average of 0.468 goals per game and 14 goals per 30-game season. Outside of Ukraine Rebrov played 156 games and scored only 20 goals, thus scoring much more at the rate of a defender than that of a striker. Most of his career Rebrov played in a midfield position, and not in a striker position. His best performances came between the years 1997 and 2000. During those years he scored on average twice in every three games and also scored 12 of his 15 goals for the national team.

Controversy

Sergei Rebrov was at the centre of a race row in September 2008 by giving Spurs new signing Roman Pavlyuchenko some controversial advice. The former Tottenham striker reportedly warned Pavlyuchenko not to go out near White Hart Lane - because lots of "dark-skinned people" live there. According to the Daily Mirror, Rebrov's comments came in an interview in Russian magazine Football Weekly on how £13.8 million signing Pavlyuchenko should adapt to British life.[9]

Rebrov, who played for Spurs between 2000 and 2004, said: "I wouldn't go for a walk on my own around White Hart Lane. A lot of dark-skinned people live there. So naturally the crime rate is higher than anywhere else. It's not nice to be a robbery victim. So I suggest that Roman doesn't walk but drives around that area." [10]

National team career

Rebrov's club exploits earned him a recall to the national team and a ticket to the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, where he scored a long range shot against Saudi Arabia as Ukraine progressed to the quarterfinals before going down to Italy.

At the time of his retirement on 20 July 2009 he was the fourth most capped player in the Ukrainian national team's history having represented his country 75 times and was their second all-time scorer with 15 goals.
