Biography:

Hancahrenka started his way to professional football in Children and Youth Sport School in his native town of Hoiniki, and then moved to Republican School of Olympic Reserve (RUOR) in Minsk (first coaches — Alexander Vergeychik and Yury Pyshnik). For two years played for RUOR (1995-1997) as a defender. In 1998 moved to BATE. In Borisov he played for another four years (1998-2002), winning the Belarusian title twice. Unfortunately, bright career was ruined by a severe injury.

In 2004 Hancharenka graduated from Belarusian State Academy of Physical Culture as a football coach and started his coaching career. Between 2004 and 2006 he worked as a coach of BATE reserves. In 2007 he promoted to the position of first assistant in Igor Kriushenko's coaching staff. 13 November 2007 he became head coach of BATE Borisov.

This decision of the board of directors turned out to be extremely successful. Next year the team made a tremendous breakthrough, qualifying for UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time in the history of Belarusian football. BATE faced Real Madrid, Juventus and Zenit and did not disappoint its fans in battles with European giants.

Next season the Yellow Blues headed by Hancharenka were in a group stage again, this time in UEFA Europa League. And in 2010/11 of this tournament BATE managed to get to Last 32 stage for the first time in the history of Belarusian football.

In 2011/12 Hancharenka managed to qualify for another Champions League adventure. This time FC Barcelona, AC Milan and Viktoria Plzen were the opponents.

In domestic competitions Hancharenka proves his reputation as the most talented coach every year. 2010 was especially fruitful as the Yellow Blues pocketed treble winning the League title, Belarusian Cup and Belarusian Supercup.

Hancharenka has UEFA PRO licence and is always thirsty for knowledge. His coaching staff visits big European clubs (Villareal, Roma, Ajax, Milan) for internships.
