YEREVAN (Armradio.am) — Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been named Armenian Footballer of the Year for 2014.

It’s the fourth time in a row the 25-year-old has scooped the prize – voted for by members of the Football Federation of Armenia, as well as the media – and fifth in total.

Dinamo Moscow goalkeeper Roman Berezovsky and defender Robert Arumanyan from Kazakhstan’s FC Aktobe came second and third respectively.

The head coach of FC Pyunik and the Armenian youth team Sargis Hovsepyan was named coach of the year.

“I feel honored to win Armenian Best Player 2014 Award for the 5th time (4th in a row) which I’d like to share with my teammates and supporters! I will continue to work hard to achieve new accomplishments. Thank you all!” Mkhitaryan said in a Facebook post.

Mkhitaryan, who scored 12 times and laid on five assists for club and country in 2014, is currently recovering from a thigh injury sustained in BVB’s 1-0 defeat away to Hertha Berlin on 13 December and is expected to return to action in February.
