Discovering young talents: Armenian right wing-back from Belgium

By Samvel Sukiasyan

NEWS.am Sport continues to present Armenian teen footballers who play abroad and dream of playing for the Armenian national football team.

Sargis Gaboyan, 14, plays in the U-15 team of the Belgian ASV Geel.

“Sargis has been playing football since he was six years old,” the father, Hrach Gaboyan told NEWS.am SPORT and added the following: He mainly plays as a right wing-back, but some coaches have also tried him in the “number 8” position (center midfielder-ed.).

In 2016-17, my son played for the teens’ team of KFC Duffel and then moved to Lierse SK.

Since 2019, he has been playing for the Belgian IP League’s ASV Geel. The Belgian teen championship is different from the championships of other countries in that it is a specific championship with high competition.

Sargis holds regular trainings at the Dutch PSV Academy. According to a preliminary agreement, he will be on probation in the Frency Lyon in September.

We’re in contact with FC Shirak’s coach Felix Khojoyan and the team’s former player Ara Adamyan, who is currently playing in France.

We would be happy and proud, if Sargis received an invitation from Armenia’s football team for teens. If invited, he will do everything he can to make sure he does his best and help his homeland.”
