• An indefatigable midfielder, his playing career lasted well into a third decade, the majority of it spent in the Estonian SSR league and Meistriliiga.
• Launched his coaching career by taking hometown club Tulevik Viljandi to fifth place in the 1998 Meistriliiga and finished as runners-up in both league and Estonian Cup the following year.
• Replaced Teitur Thórdarson as coach of Flora and Estonia in 2000 but ceded both positions to Dutchman Arno Pijpers after just a year in charge despite a positive sequence of results with the latter.
• Returned to Tulevik Viljandi before taking over at Levadia Tallinn in May 2003. Won three Meistriliiga titles and three Estonian Cups to earn another crack at the national team job, replacing Dane Viggo Jensen in December 2007.
• Led Estonia through 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign, ending on positive note with 2-0 victory against Belgium. Coached Flora again in 2009, winning the Estonian Cup, but given a position working with the club's youth players after a disappointing fourth-placed league finish.
