In the first half of 2009, he was in the lease of the club “Tom”, where he almost did not play due to a serious injury (he entered the field in a T-shirt “Siberians” only two times).
Spent the second half of 2009 as part of Spartak, and in the 2010 season I played on loan for Siberia, where the head coach was his former BATE mentor Igor Kriushenko. In the period from 2008 to 2012 spent 16 matches for the "gladiators" and scored one goal.
Return to BATE
In February 2011, he returned to Borisovo and began to play for BATE again, but on loan from Spartak. In his native team, Yegor Filipenko quickly established himself at the base and at the end of the lease term (February 2012) was redeemed by the Borisov club.

Bad experience in Spain

The debut for “anchovies” took place on January 14 in the return match of the 1/8 final of the Spanish Cup against the “Levante”. Despite the fact that the debut turned out to be extremely unfortunate (after Egor Filipenko, who came on as a substitute, the team missed three goals), however, they managed to get through to the quarterfinals. After such an unsuccessful start, the coaching staff rarely included in the starting lineup of the Belarusian football player. There is an opinion that Filipenko could not justify the hopes of the coaches of the Spanish club, because he did not play on his position. All his life he was the central defender, and in “Malaga” they demanded that he play at the “defender” position. For the entire season Filipenko entered the field just eight times.
