Club careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Ruslan Mingazow started playing football at the age of 6, being taken to the first training by his father, who is also a former Turkmeni footballer. At the beginning he had to train with an older group of players because there was none for his age. Mingazow played for FC Aşgabat youth team and was taken to the first team in 2007, aged 16. The same year he helped his club win the Turkmenistan Super Cup. A year later Mingazow became the champion of Turkmenistan, winning the 2008 Ýokary Liga. In 2009 Mingazow participated in the Turkmenistan President's Cup and helped his club reach the semi-finals, scoring two goals in three matches.[3]

Skonto RīgaEdit

Following the impressive performance at the Turkmenistan President's Cup, Mingazow was invited to join the tournament's finalists, Latvian Higher League club Skonto Rīga, on trial by their manager Paul Ashworth. Having received another offer from Armenian Premier League, Mingazow, eventually, signed a contract with the Latvian side in June 2009.[3] He scored his first Latvian Higher League goal in a 5–0 victory over Daugava Rīga on 8 July 2009.[4] During his first season at the club Mingazow participated in 20 league matches, scoring twice. In 2010 Mingazow helped Skonto become the champions of Latvia for the first time since 2004 under their new manager Aleksandrs Starkovs.[5] In 2011 Skonto won the Baltic League, beating another Latvian side FK Ventspils in the final's penalty shoot-out.[6] In 2012 Mingazow won the Latvian Cup, as Skonto beat Liepājas Metalurgs in the final via penalty shoot-out.[7] On 4 July 2013 Mingazow scored the only goal in 1–0 away victory over FC Tiraspol, helping Skonto reach the second round of the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League.[8] In the second round Mingazow provided an excellent assist for his team-mate Artūrs Karašausks as Skonto beat the Synot liga side Slovan Liberec 2–1 at home.[9] Mingazow was named the best player of the Latvian Higher League in August 2013.[10]

Baumit JablonecEdit

On 27 August 2014 Mingazow joined the Czech First League club Baumit Jablonec.[11]

Slavia PragueEdit

Mingazow joined another Czech First League team, Slavia Prague, in June 2016.[12] On 2 April 2017, he gained notoriety in Czech press after winning a controversial penalty kick in the Sparta - Slavia derby, allowing Slavia to equalize from the spot in injury time.[13] The disciplinary board of referees later ruled that it had been a dive by Mingazow, but no punishment was issued.[14] He scored his first league goal for Slavia on 17 April 2017 in a 4–0 home win against Hradec Králové. On 15 June 2018, Slavia announced that Mingazow will be looking for new opportunities and will no longer play for Slavia.[15] On 7 September 2018, Slavia announced that Mingazow had joined 1. FK Příbram on loan for the first half of the season.[16]

Irtysh PavlodarEdit

July 23, 2019 Ruslan Mingazov, as a free agent, signed a contract with Kazakhstani FC Irtysh Pavlodar.[17] In December 2019, he extended the contract until the end of 2020. In the spring of 2020, due to financial problems, FC Irtysh Pavlodar withdrew from the championship of Kazakhstan. The footballer spent 13 matches for FC Irtysh Pavlodar, scored 2 goals and gave 3 assists in the Kazakhstan Premier League.

Shakhter KaragandyEdit

On 6 August 2020, Mingazow signed for Kazakh club FC Shakhter Karagandy,[18][19] making his debut on 19 August, in a 1-0 defeat to FC Kaisar.[20]
