Vashchuk Vladislav Viktorovich

Vashchuk Vladislav Viktorovich
Ukrainian football player, defender
Born on January 2, 1975 in Kiev.

He played for Dynamo Kyiv (Kiev) (1993–2002, 2005–2008), CSK ZSU (Kiev) (1993), Spartak (Moscow) (2003–2004), Chernomorets (Odessa) (2004–2005 , 2009 – 2010), FC Lviv (2008), Irpen (Gorenichi) (2009), Volyn (Lutsk) (2010 – 2011).
• champion of Ukraine (1995-2001);
• winner of the Cup of Ukraine (1996, 1998 – 2000, 2006);
• winner of the Cup of Russia (2003);
• participant of the World Championship (2006).

There is a beautiful legend about the predicted fate of Vladislav Vashchuk, perhaps, he also composed. Allegedly, on the day when Vladislav, his father, an ardent admirer of Dynamo Kyiv, was born, after receiving a note from his wife at the maternity hospital, he went straight to the match of his favorite club. And after the final whistle with the battle broke into the locker room, where on this note took autographs from Dynamo stars – Blokhin, Onishchenko, Veremeeva. And Vlad’s fate was sealed. Everything in this story would be nothing, but Vladislav Vashchuk was born on January 2, when Dynamo Kyiv, of course, did not play any matches.

Nevertheless, Vlad since his childhood, he purposefully went to his football career, which he stubbornly did not want to finish even at 36, joking aside: “This is my age, it’s terrible, I myself play nothing yet.” At the age of eight, the father took his son to the SKA Children’s and Youth Sports School (Kiev), where he was enlisted in the team of coach Anatoly Petrovich Sergienko. The team “SKA” with children born in 1975 constantly participated in the championship of the city of Kiev, as well as Ukraine. Vladislav played the position of the last defender and was the team captain.

After the school “SKA” was closed (Vashchuk was then in seventh grade), on the recommendation of coach Vlad, they were transferred to the Dynamo Sports School (School № 170 at Obolon) in a special football class, where the coach was Honored Coach of Ukraine Anatoly Kroshchenko. So at the age of 12, Vlad met many of the same age – future partners in the club and the national team. His classmates were Alexander Shovkovsky, Sergey Fedorov, Oleg Venglinsky and others. The team performed so successfully in international tournaments in Italy, Germany, Ireland, Finland, that after graduating from the school boys, a Dynamo-3 team was organized on the basis of the class, which performed in the championship of Ukraine among physical education teams.

Later Vashchuk, Shovkovsky, Fedorov and seven more children were transferred to Dynamo-2. Young, but already known to the glory of youthful victories, the people of Kiev were bored in the second league, and at age 18 Vashchuk and Shovkovsky waved at CSKA-Borisfen, whose owner had big plans for the future and paid the players unprecedented money – Vladislav’s first salary was 500 dollars.

However, the confusion and vacillation of Dynamo students in cities and villages was stopped by Gregory Surkis, who came to the leadership of the Kiev club at that time. He returned all the pupils of the sports school at Dynamo, and soon, under the leadership of Mikhail Fomenko, first Shovkovsky and then Vashchuk became the players of the base.

The whole career of Vladislav Vashchuk can be divided into two segments. Rubicon between them – the transition from Kiev “Dynamo” in Moscow “Spartak”. Yes, the footballers, though rarely, but made before moving from Kiev to Moscow or vice versa, but so that the captain at the peak of his career went into the camp of the worst enemies from all-union times of enemies ?!

Not then, in 2003, nor later on, Vashchuk could not explain to journalists and fans why he decided to take such a step. Yes, he had friends in Moscow – Titov and Parfenov. Yes, we got rid of the victories of Dynamo Kyiv, which were replaced by a complete failure in 2002. Yes, Lobanovsky went to another world, and everyone was confused, what will happen next (in the same year, by the way, Vladislav lost his mother). But Vashchuk was part of the foundation for Dynamo, it was needed! The management of the club did not want to let him go either – the transition took place with a big scandal that reached the UEFA.

The reason, in our opinion, is simple: Vladislav, for most of his career, wanted more – recognition and a stellar career even somewhere outside of Kiev. Commenting on the success of Shevchenko in Milan, he said unequivocally: “Yes, any of the Lobanovsky team in any Italian club would be a star!” Later, already in Moscow, when giving an interview to Sport Express, Vladislav complained that in Kiev “ the players did not even get the information that someone was interested in them, the Surkis decide who to sell, who to leave “…

Whatever it was, and the “Moscow campaign” of Vashchuk cannot be called successful. Yes, he won the Russian Cup with Spartak, but a year later he stopped falling into the groundwork, and in addition to the “defector” they began to hang all the flaws in the defense and goals conceded in those matches when he was still on the field.

After five months of throwing around Europe (views in Mainz, Feyenoord, Hannover and Fenerbahce), Vashchuk agreed to the offer of Odessa-based Chernomorets, where he spent far from the worst season – the most experienced and titled team in the team became real “Batko”, not only destroying the attacks of rivals.
