Zygmantovich started playing for Dinamo Minsk. In his second professional season, he appeared 30 times and netted twice to help his hometown side win the only Soviet League in its history, edging FC Dynamo Kyiv by one point. After an unassuming spell with FC Groningen, the 30-year-old returned to the club where he would spend most of his career.

In early 1993, Zygmantovich moved abroad again, now to Spain with Racing de Santander, where he would play the next three full seasons, teaming up with former compatriots (Russian) Dmitri Popov, Dmitri Radchenko and Ilshat Faizulin. In 1993–94, he was an instrumental element as the Cantabria outfit achieved one of its best ever finishes in La Liga (eighth).

Zygmantovich started coaching in 2001, in his country, including the national team's U-19. In 2007, he moved to Lithuania's FBK Kaunas.

International career

Zygmantovich made his debut for the Soviet Union on 28 March 1984, in a friendly with West Germany. He represented the nation at the 1990 FIFA World Cup, scoring a goal against Cameroon in a 4–0 victory, which turned out to be his last international game for the USSR.

Zygmantovich later also appeared for Belarus in nine matches.
