Boris Rotenberg (Russian: Борис Борисович Ротенберг; born 19 May 1986 in Leningrad) is a Finnish-Russian professional footballer who played briefly for Olympiakos Nicosia on loan from FC Dynamo Moscow.
His father, also named Boris Rotenberg, was listed by the Forbes magazine as 100th wealthiest person in Russia in 2010 with net worth of US$700,000,000. He was a friend of former Russian president and current PM, Vladimir Putin, since 1960s, when they were taking judo lessons together. His uncle Arkadi Rotenberg (another Putin’s judo friend) was 99th wealthiest in Russia, according to the same list.
In July 2008, Rotenberg and fellow Jewish Russian, Yakov Ehrlich, joined Israeli club, Hapoel Petah Tikva on trial. The club was interested in both their services since they are Jewish and would not count as foreigners.
