Club careerEdit

International careerEdit

He earned 9 caps for the USSR national football team, and participated in the first ever European Nations' Cup in 1960, where the Soviets were champions. He was selected for the 1964 European Nations' Cup squad, but did not play in any games at the tournament.

Coaching careerEdit

He has the dubious distinction of being the only coach to get FC Spartak Moscow relegated from the top division in USSR or Russia (in 1976).

On 8 November 2019, FC Spartak Moscow announced that Krutikov had died.[2]
