Yuri Vasilyevich Gavrilov (Russian: Юрий Васильевич Гаврилов) (born May 3, 1953 in Setun, Odintsovsky District, Moscow Oblast) is a Russian football manager and a former midfielder who played for Dynamo Moscow and Spartak Moscow.

He made 46 appearances for the USSR national football team and scored 10 goals.[1] He also competed for the Soviet Union at the 1980 Summer Olympics and the 1982 FIFA World Cup in Spain.[2] His creative skills are immortalized by Konstantin Beskov's famous phrase "If you don't know what to do with the ball, pass it to Gavrilov".

When he was 19, Konstantin Beskov took him to Dinamo Moscow from Iskra amateur team. But there was an expensive number of quality players in 70's Dinamo, and Gavrilov couldn't find the permanent place in Dinamo squad.

After being winger in Dinamo, Gavrilov's new role in Spartak team let him show his best abilities and proved himself one of the all-time best Soviet football creative midfielders.
