The future athlete was born in April 1975 on the first day in the Russian capital Moscow. From an early age, Andrei began to get involved in sports, he especially liked to play football. He dreamed of one day being among those who practice this sport professionally. Parents were not against the hobbies of their son and one day they decided to take him to the football academy. The choice fell on a small school "Timiryazevets". The section does not have a professional team behind it, and Gordeev was accepted without any problems.
Later he moved to another football school, FC Chertanovo, which today is one of the best youth academies in the Russian Federation. For some time, Andrei, like most boys, began to dream of making a career as a world famous goleodor, and therefore at first played as a striker. But the academy quickly realized that a talented and extremely active youth was out of place. The coaches displaced Gordeev to the midfielder position, but even there he fell out of place. Finally, when put on the defensive, the effectiveness and value he brings to the team has grown exponentially.

After a short break, he moved to Dynamo Moscow in 1996. The club played at the highest level, in the Russian championship, but despite his potential, Gordeev could not take a key position in the team. In two seasons, he only appeared on the field ten times and scored one goal from an opponent.
In 1998, Gordeev's contract with Dynamo expired and he was in free agent status for six months. In 1999, he received an offer from Anji, in which he spent most of his playing career. For six years, he regularly appeared on the field and helped his team earn points. In 2005 he moved to Fakel, where he spent one season, and the next year he became a player at Sportakademklub, where after one season he ended his playing career.
