YEREVAN, June 6. / ARKA /. The Swiss head coach of Armenia’s national soccer team, Bernard Challandes, said today he wants to change the mentality of the Armenian team. Armenians are playing a friendly match today versus Germany in Mainz.
"I want to change the mentality of our team to make them play not only on counterattacks, but also to show good attacking football, “Challandes was quoted as saying by the Armenian Football Federation.
Speaking about the upcoming match against the Germans, the Swiss specialist said this game is very important for the Armenian team because ‘such an opportunity to play against a first class steam is not given every day." He said he has worked with the team for 12 days only and needs time to achieve good results.
