Bernard Challandes: “Edgar Manucharyan must play brave and manly football”.

-Mr. Challandes, in the interview to FFA official site you referred to your visit to Russia and the notes you made, watching the matches of the clubs, where the different candidates for Armenian national teams of different ages play. As you have also met and spoken to some of them, would you like to speak about any of them concretely?


- I didn’t want to speak about anyone concretely, because, as I have mentioned earlier, the players, who will be in the best fit and wiil have permanent practice will be invited to the national team. But as you want me to point out somebody, I will speak about Edgar Manucharyan, especcialy considering the fact, that Armenian fans are interested in him. In fact, Edgar Manucharyan is a very talented player, has very good qualities and can be very helpful to our team. Edgar must concentrate on football and must not be afraid of football and he must play brave and manly football. We- Armenian like this word, don’t we? He must play alongside the field and must understand the demands of modern football. He must work hard and better results will be seen very soon.
