In 2001, Kutuzov joined Italian side A.C. Milan from BATE Borisov, becoming the club's third Russian-speaking player after Andriy Shevchenko and Kakha Kaladze. However, unlike his former USSR compatriots, he failed to establish himself as an important part of the team, getting to play only 37 minutes in just 4 games throughout the entire season.
For the following, 2003–04 season he was again loaned, this time to the Italian Serie B side Avellino. Kutuzov established himself as one of the most important players of the side and a fan-favorite. He played 43 games, scoring 15 goals. Despite his efforts, the team was relegated to Serie C1.
After his successful season in Serie B, he was noticed by the Serie A side U.C. Sampdoria. The club bought half of the rights for the footballer from A.C. Milan in 2004 for €1.5 million and signed him until 2008. In the 2004–05 season he played in 32 games (14 times in starting line-up, totaling 1,604 minutes) and scored 4 goals.
On 20 June 2006, F.C. Parma bought the full rights on Kutuzov from Sampdoria (and in earlier Sampdoria bought Milan's half for €1 million). He signed a three-year contract with them. He was loaned to newly promoted Serie B side Pisa in July 2007. He returned to Parma during the summer of 2008.
In January 2009, he left for A.S. Bari where he finished his career.
Kutuzov has over 50 caps for the Belarus national football team. On 17 April 2002, he made his debut for the national side, contributing 2 goals in the 5:2 away win over Hungary in a friendly match.
