At a press conference after the Armenia-Cyprus friendly match at Yerevan’s Republican Stadium after Vazgen Sargsyan, Arthur Petrosyan, the head coach of the Armenian national football team, also touched upon the fans’ action of silence.
“My attitude towards this action is very negative. Fans should acknowledge that there can be also difficult times for the team. If you support them, you also need to support them during those difficult moments, and especially if it is a national team. Our players do not deserve whistlings. The stadium was whistling during the game against Belarus. It’s not fair to the boys, “said the coach.
