Vassily Sergeyevich Kulkov (Russian: Владимир Сергеевич Кульков) (born June 11, 1966 in Moscow) is a former Russian football player and current coach.

Either a central defender or defensive midfielder, he was best known for his spells at FC Spartak Moscow and S.L. Benfica.

Club career

From 1984 until the end of his career, Kulkov played for a host of clubs in Russia, coming to prominence with hometown's most notably FC Spartak Moscow, from where he left in 1991 for a Portuguese league stint with S.L. Benfica (where he played with countrymen Aleksandr Mostovoi and Sergei Yuran).

In 1994–95, both Kulkov and Yuran joined F.C. Porto, being very important figures in the league's conquest. Aged 29, Kulkov returned to Spartak, only to be immediately shortly after to Millwall F.C. in the English second division, where he failed to adjust immensely, appearing very rarely in a six-month loan.

After two years with FC Zenit Saint Petersburg and one at FC Krylia Sovetov Samara, Kulkov returned to Portugal, joining F.C. Alverca - then Benfica's feeder club but also in the first division; he closed out his career with amateurs FC Shatura, aged 35.

Kulkov then had some spells in coaching, notably assisting countryman Anatoliy Byshovets at C.S. Marítimo in 2003. Six years later, he moved to Spartak Moscow's reserves, in the same capacity.

International career

Kulkov made his debut for the Soviet Union on April 26, 1989, in the 1990 World Cup qualifier against East Germany.

Despite playing regularly for the national team for several years, he did not participate in any major tournament: in 1990, he was not selected for the final stages, and missed UEFA Euro 1992 (with CIS) and 1996 due to injury.

Before the 1994 FIFA World Cup, several Russia players, including Kulkov, signed a letter demanding that team manager Pavel Sadyrin resign. Sadyrin did not and Kulkov refused to participate.
