A real scandal broke out around the Armenian national team. At a press conference preceding the Euro 2024 qualifying match against Wales, Ukrainian coach Alexander Petrakov was asked why he did not call Rostov midfielder Khoren Bayramyan to the national team.
“I called him – Alexander Vasilyevich was extremely sincere. – He arrived at the first training camp, said that he felt discomfort and could not play, and then left the team. And three days later he played 90 minutes for Rostov.
Then he came to the second training camp and was allegedly injured again. We scheduled an MRI for the morning, but he said he didn’t even want to do the examination. I wanted to leave the national team and booked a ticket on the first flight to Rostov. I wished him good luck in life“
The footballer has already responded to the words of the Ukrainian coach, accusing him of lying and at the same time trying to justify himself. But the fans took the side of the mentor, noting that Bayramyan, who had played in Russia his entire career, always wanted to play for the national team of this country, and only in 2020, at the age of 28, without waiting for a call, he made his debut for the national team of Armenia, playing since then 22 matches (scored 2 goals).
