Defeat costly for Sargsyan

FC Kilikia coach Albert Sargsyan has stood down after his team were
humbled by FC Pyunik in their Armenian Cup quarter-final.

‘Horrible result’
Sargsyan and his assistant Armen Bagumyan took the decision to quit
following a 7-0 away defeat by the defending champions in the
second-leg tie. He said: “One of the reasons for my leaving is this
horrible result, although there are other reasons as well. I also
need a rest after last season, which was quite hard.”

Won promotion
Sargsyan guided Kilikia to promotion in 2003, but will not lead the
team into the new Premier League season after the 8-0 aggregate loss.
Armen Khachatryan has been named caretaker coach.
