Former head coach of Spartak Moscow and Spanish Mallorca Valery Karpin is the number one candidate to head the Armenian national team, sportbox.ru claims. The post remains vacant after Bernnard Challandes quit as Armenia coach earlier this week.
Challandes filed his resignation after a poor start in the qualification round for Euro-2016. Armenia is currently the last in Group I with one point earned in four matches.
Karpin, 46, who left Mallorca in February, visited Yerevan over the weekend to participate in the match dedicated to Khoren Oganesian’s 60th birthday. He reportedly met with the leadership of the Football Federation of Armenia.
Valery Kapin has a successful experience of working with two leading players of the Armenian national team Yura Movsisyan and Aras Ozbilis.
