12 February 2010 13:05

YEREVAN (AFP) - Pyunik Yerevan manager Vardan Minasyan has been appointed as coach of the Armenian national team, the country's football federation press service announced Friday.

The 36-year-old Minasyan, who had been assistant to Jan Povlsen of Denmark, has been given a contract through until the end of the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign.

Minasyan won the Armenian national title eight times as a player and was also a skipper of the national side.

"We were drawn into a very strong qualifying group, where Russia are clear favourites," Minasyan said.

"Slovakia and Ireland are also very strong opponents but we will do our best to provide them all with a tough opposition. I hope we can finish in fourth place in our group."

Macedonia and Andorra were also drawn in the qualifying group with Armenia.
