Armenian footballer’s deal with Iranian club fails because of Azeri fans
Armenian center back Varazdat Haroyan’s contract with Iranian Tractor Sazi has been cancelled because of discontent on the part of the club’s Azerbaijani fans, varzesh3.com reports.
Last night Tractor Sazi announced a two-year deal with the Armenian international and posted his photo on its website.
However, in a statement released today the club said “Haroyan’s ethnicity has caused outrage among the Azerbaijani supporters of the club.”
The statement urges to “put an end to the debate and move forward.” The club will now negotiate with other players to strengthen its defense line.
