Club careerEdit

In 1995, Gurenko was transferred to Russian Premier League side Lokomotiv Moscow. His outstanding skills and determination lead him to become one of the leaders of his side, and eventually he left his team for further challenge. In 1999, he became a player of Italian Serie A side A.S. Roma, which cost the club 10.58 billion Italian lire,[1] but couldn't establish himself well there, playing in seven games for his club.

In the 2000–01 season he played for Spanish La Liga side Real Zaragoza, but didn't do well there too, participating in just 11 games and for the 2001–02 season he returned to Italy, playing for Parma AC, making 11 appearances that season.[citation needed]

On 8 December 2008, he moved back to Belarus to play for Dinamo Minsk[2] and retired on 21 August 2009.

In 2014, he briefly joined Belarusian Second League club Partizan Minsk.[3][4][5]

On 22 July 2006, Gurenko passed the milestone of 500 competitive games on the highest level, and became a member of the elite club of Sergei Aleinikov.[6] In total, he has played in 612 matches for top league clubs.[7]

International careerEdit

Gurenko debuted for the Belarusia national team on 5 May 1994, in a friendly against Ukraine and would eventually become the team captain. He ended his national team duty after a row with the manager during preparation for the WC qualifier against Moldova on 3 September 2005.

He is the second most capped Belarusian player, with 80 caps.[8]

As part of the national team won 2002 LG Cup.[9]

Coaching careerEdit

After release of Slavoljub Muslin by Dinamo Minsk on 27 July 2009, Gurenko was named new Assistant Coach in the team of new head coach Kirill Alshevskiy. On 21 August 2009, Dinamo Minsk's club officials promoted him to the head coaching position. He replaced Kirill Alshevski.[10]

In 2013, he worked as Slavoljub Muslin's assistant at Russian top division club FC Krasnodar.

On 4 February 2014, Gurenko was appointed an assistant manager at PFC Spartak Nalchik, where he reunited with former Lokomotiv teammate Khasanbi Bidzhiyev, appointed earlier as a head coach.[11]
