Russia U17 national squad and Levante UD (Valencia, Spain) midfielder, Russian Armenian Edgar Sevikyan, spoke about how he ended up in this Spanish football club, and which country’s national team he links his future with.
“When I ended up in Levante, my brother, sister, and mother lived there at the time,” Sevikyan, 16, told the Russian Legioners. “I had arrived in Valencia to see my brother and my mother, and I was training with Levante to keep in shape.
“I held two trainings at Levante, whereupon the coach said he wanted to see me in the team. So, I signed a contract with the club in July. Now, my brother also trains at Levante. Now, I’m playing at Levante’s second team, where footballers born in 2000 and 2001 are playing.
“I’m proud to be an Armenian, and I love and respect my historical homeland. But, now, I play at the Russian national squad, and I link my future with it.”
In Russia, Edgar Sevikyan played in FC Lokomotiv Moscow’s youth teams for five years.
