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.
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.”
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.
