Today the Football Federation of Armenia announced the termination of cooperation with Armenia's national team coach Joaquin Caparros by mutual consent of the parties.

"My path in the Armenian national team began with Joaquin Caparros. It was the first time he invited me to the national team, which I am very happy about.

Armenian people, fans have experienced many happy moments under Caparros. In difficult times we managed to win a ticket to League B. It was a really historic moment for all of us.

I wish him good health and success in his future career," said Bichakhchyan.
