Husin was an instrumental part of the Dynamo Kyiv squad which reached the semi final of the UEFA Champions League 1998-99 season. He continued to be a key player in the squad of Dynamo after that, even after head coach's, Valery Lobanovsky's death, and the change of coaches that followed.
Krylia Sovetov SamaraEdit
After Ukraine's qualification for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, Husin left Dynamo Kyiv to captain Russian side FC Krylia Sovetov Samara, stating that he wanted to focus on the national team instead of club football and because he had a conflict with coach Yozhef Szabo.
On 8 June 2007, Husin retired from Krylia Sovetov and joined the FC Saturn Moscow Oblast coaching staff, but in 2008 he decided to play again as well. But with the change of the coaching staff in the middle of the fall, Husin was sent away from the club for supposedly disrupting the club's unity. Husin and others deny this and say that he was sent away because new coach Jürgen Röber wanted to establish his authority at the new club.
The player and coach is currently keeping up his form with his former team, Dynamo Kyiv, but in its number-two team, Dynamo-2 Kyiv. He demands compensation from the Saturn, which refuses to pay him anything.
In the summer of 2009 he signed with the Russian club FC Khimki. He left the club before playing any official games when he received two injuries in a short time and decided he is not ready to play on the Russian Premier League level at the time.
Following the 2006 World Cup, Husin announced his retirement from international football, ending a successful 13-year international career. When announcing his international retirement he praised Ukraine's achievement of reaching the quarter-finals in their first appearance in the tournament, in which he played an instrumental role for the Ukrainian team. However, on 15 August 2006, following lengthy conversations with his teammates, Husin announced his decision to remain in the Ukrainian team for the time being.
