YEREVAN — Chairman of the Football Federation of Armenia Ruben Hayrapetyan has accepted the resignation of Bernard Challenges, the head coach of the Armenian national team.

In a statement published on FFA official website, Challenges expressed gratitude to the Football Federation, the caching staff and fans of the Armenian national team.

“I came to Armenia about a year ago with one goal – to qualify for Euro-2016 with the national team. This was a big challenge to me. It was clearly stated in my contract that we had to gain enough points to qualify, otherwise I would quit as head coach. For that very reason, everything is clear to me now,” Challandes said.

He said one point from four games could not be considered a satisfactory result. “I’m disappointed by the result, but not the Federation, its President or someone else,” Challandes said.

He wished success to the Armenian national team. “I see the potential the national team has. I will always follow the Armenian team and hope to see it the European or World Cup one fay,” Challandes concluded.

The resignation comes after a 1:2 loss to Albania in Euro-2016 qualifier.
