At the club level, the 32-year-old center-back has registered 28 appearances across all competitions to date since joining the team in January, registering an assist and a goal. Most recently, Kryvtsov was a key member in the team’s 2023 Leagues Cup title-winning campaign, starting in all seven matches throughout the competition and recording his first assist for the Club in semifinals as Inter Miami won its first official trophy.
