He is current manager of Vorskla Poltava.
Born in Ostroh, Rivne Oblast, his first steps in football Kosovskyi started when he went to the first grade of school as it happened to be that near the school was also located a children-youth sports school. Kosovskyi explained that his father worked as a driver in Netishyn which is located in neighboring Khmelnytskyi Oblast. When in Netishyn started to be built the Khmelnytskyi Nuclear Power Plant, in 1984 Netishyn was granted the status of city and around that time the Kosovskyi family received a new apartment to which they moved.
Kosovskyi is notable for representing Dynamo Kyiv in the late 1990s alongside Serhiy Rebrov and Andriy Shevchenko, usually playing the starting left winger. Kosovskyi's career was cut short in the early 2000s by numerous injuries, which prevented his numerous comeback attempts. Following a 9-year career with Dynamo, Kosovsky retired in 2003 to be a scout for Dynamo Kyiv.
During his international career, Kosovskyi has amassed 25 caps, scoring 2 goals.
