YEREVAN — Vardan Minasyan will not head the Armenian national team in the new season, the Football Federation of Armenia reports.
“It would be an honor for me to continue to head the Armenian national team, but now I prefer a different continuation of my career,” he said, adding that he has a number of proposals, including from abroad, which he would like to consider. Vardan Minasyan’s contract expires on October 31.
“It’s an honor for any coach to head the national team. There can be no greater feeling that representing the country, the state, and I’m glad I’ve had that opportunity with the national team,” Minasyan said. He thanked the President of the Football Federation, the Executive Committee and the staff.
He also expressed gratitude to the fans. “I’ve always felt their support even at times they were severely criticizing me. I’m confident they will always stand by our team, our football.”
Vardan Minasyan said in an interview with FFA official website that the Armenian national team is mature enough to defeat any rival.
