Aleksandr Tarkhanov: I'll help raise the level of Armenian football

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.
