Newly appointed head coach of Yerevan’s FC Pyunik, Russian specialist Aleksandr Tarkhanov talked about his plans for the Armenian football club.
“I have known this team for a long time. I started following FC Pyunik more closely when my good acquaintance Artur Soghomonyan became the football club’s president. After Andrei Talalayev left, I received and accepted the offer to become the head coach. I was on vacation when the club’s president phoned me and said the club needed a head coach, and I came to Yerevan.
Local specialists will help me with coaching, not Russian specialists. I’ll help raise the level of Armenian football.
I know Armenia well and have a lot of Armenian friends. This is where I started pursuing my coaching career.
Armenia has ideal playing fields. Republican Stadium is great, but of course, there are no new stadiums.
FC Pyunik’s objective is to score a pass to the qualification stage of the Champions League or the Europa League, and there are 5 teams competing for 3 passes,” the Russian specialist said, according to sovsport.ru.
