Armenia - Armen Gyulbudaghyants

Since September 2018, the Armenia national football team have been overseen by Armen Gyuldaghyants. The aptly named Armen has been in charge of the country of his birth for 10 games, a run which has included friendlies as well as the whole run of both the 2018 inaugural Nations League and the Euro 2020. Armen was born in Kirovakan - a northern city in Armenia - in 1966. As, generally, international teams' hierarchies are beginning to favour employing older managers, this makes him one of the older newly-hired managers in the European game - at the time of writing, at least.

A player before he turned to management, Armed took an unusual career path. A robust midfielder known for his tough tackling, industriousness and creditable work ethic (attributes which are reflected in the way he has set up the Armenia national team), Armen started his career at Spartak Hoktemberyan. Hoktemberyan as a club was dissolved in 2003 after it was hit hard by the ongoing repercussions of the breakup of the Soviet Union; but back then, it was a thriving professional club which was highly competitive in the Soviet leagues. It was a fast-paced start to his career - Armen played 23 times and scored once in the 1983/84 season, despite being just 17 at the campaign's outset.

This introduction was perhaps a little premature; this might well be the reason that - at the end of the 1983/18 season - Armen decided to take a break from football altogether. Following a three year hiatus, however, Armen returned to Spartak where he would play for another season, this time playing 34 times and again scoring a solitary goal. This took his league record for the club to 57 games and two goals in total.

From there, he left his old club in favour of FC Lori where, over the course of just a year, he amassed an incredible 61 appearances, this time scoring seven times. While his goalscoring did improve at Lori, it was nothing compared to the tally he racked up at his final club, Banants. He scored 17 times in 63 appearances before hanging up his boots. Bizarrely, given that it happened in his final year as a player, Armen earned his first and only Armenia cap in 1994.

As a manager, Armen has held 13 different posts, including two with Banants, the club where he retired. He oversaw football at the club from 200-2004 before leaving for the Armenia national team, more specifically the under 19 team. After relative success with the under 19s, he moved up an age bracket: to the under 21s.

Following another hiatus from the game (this time for five years), Armen returned to manage Pyunik for a season before being asked to become manager of Banants for a second time. He then spent two successful years at Impulse FC before moving on to Alashkert.

For the next two years, Armen held roles as Gol Gohar - initially as caretaker manager and then as assistant manager. Having taken to life as an assistant, Armen joined Padideh for a stint as second in command to the manager at the Persian club. Finally, he returned again top Pyunik for a second spell.
