Khokhlov Dmitry Valeryevich - a man who in professional football can be called a player and effective, and effective. Speaking on the position of the defensive midfielder, who is destined to destroy, but not create, the player managed to register at the gate of opponents about 70 times - the result, which was not won by every forward. In addition, Dmitry managed six times to disappoint rivals in the national team of Russia.

Dmitry Khokhlov - footballer with a capital letter

Facts from life

Dmitry Khokhlov was born in 1975 in Krasnodar. The first football steps he did in the children's school "Kuban". However, his professional career began in the capital, and in his native city he will return only as a coach at the age of 40 years. Professional career player Khokhlov finished in the distant 2010, but his life and is now closely related to sports. Dmitry is engaged in coaching and, meanwhile, brings both his sons to the sport (karate, football). The footballer's wife shares the hobby of children and, it seems, can completely rely on Dmitry in this matter.

My horses, horses

Except, perhaps, "Spartacus", Khokhlov throughout the career of the football player managed to play for all the "big" Moscow clubs. Considering the piquancy of their relationship, this fact of biography is not an ordinary event.

And it all started in the capital CSKA. In 1992, in the army's application for the season appeared unknown to anyone previously known Dmitry Khokhlov. Biography of the football player, in fact, was only at the dawn, so it is unlikely at that time anyone could assume that the young guy will soon grow one of the best supporting midfielders in Russia. However, already at a fairly young age, Dmitry had a full set of qualities necessary for the player in his position. He was well developed physically, textured, but at the same time mobile, with a good vision of the field and, what is noteworthy, a powerful biting blow from both feet. Later, another very important quality will be added to this list. Dmitry Khokhlov - a footballer whose word in the locker room is beyond doubt, he is a real leader and leader of the team, the colors of which club he would not have defended at that moment.

International voyage

At the end of the two thousandth in the European football legionaries from Russia could be counted on the fingers. The championship of the Netherlands, although not among the first five in the Old World, but getting an invitation to it was expensive. Especially since Dmitry was paid attention not somewhere, but in one of the grants of Dutch football - PSV Eindhoven. Over the next two seasons, Dmitry Khokhlov was one of the best in his position. For PSV, he spent 60 matches, in which 9 times scored goals scored.

Needless to say, the midfielder was in good standing in Eindhoven, but the Real Sociedad club's nearly 5 million euros offered by the Spanish club for those times is very serious money, so the next football season, Dmitry Khokhlov, started in San Sebastian. It should be noted that "Real Sociedad", like another Basque football club "Athletic", always had the glory of an original collective, where it was customary to stake on their own pupils. The invitation of a foreign performer in these clubs is an extraordinary event, which means that legionaries who could improve the game of the team qualitatively were bought.

Khokhlov is a striking example of this. For the next three seasons he staked out the place of the main midfielder in the base zone, justifying from the match to the match the confidence given. In total, San-Sebastian players Dmitry held more than a hundred matches, fourteen times he grieved the opponents players hammered balls. In addition, Dmitry with the team entered the history of the Spanish championship, winning in 2003 the silver tournament. That year is still considered the most successful season since the beginning of the last century.

Time to go home

At the age of 28, Khokhlov returned to his native Moscow almost as a hero. He conquered Europe and returned, as many then believed, to finish playing at home. Dmitry played at the usual level for two seasons in the "Locomotive", after which he changed the red-green colors of the railwaymen to blue and white - Dynamo. It would seem that after thirty career athletes can only go down, but for the "Dynamo" Hohlov for five games of the championship managed to play more matches than for any of his previous teams.

In the new field

For five years, "Dynamo" was for Khokhlov's second home, so it's no wonder that after the player's career, the ex-football player decided to stay in the club structure and engage in coaching. First with the youth composition, and after - and with the basic.

There is a hypothesis that a good football player does not mean a good coach. So far, Dmitry Khokhlov confirms it rather than denies it. Work with Dynamo changed the position of coach in the "Kuban", then again followed by a return to "white and blue." However, as an advance we will write down temporary failures for creative search, because there is another hypothesis - a successful person is successful in everything.
