Jan B. Poulsen named coach of Armenian national football team

PanARMENIAN.Net - Veteran Danish coach Jan B. Poulsen has been named as the man to lead Armenia through 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying, coming in as a permanent replacement to Ian Porterfield following the Scotsman's death in September.



The 61-year-old Poulsen will couple the role with that of the Football Federation of Armenia technical director, taking the reins from Vardan Minasyan who took temporary charge after Porterfield passed away following a long illness. "I've only seen two Armenia matches so I'll get to know the players and the team during training sessions," said the former Denmark Under-21 coach. "Our goal is to achieve good results and play attractive football." Poulsen will get a taste of what is to come at the beginning of February when Armenia compete in an international tournament in Malta, alongside the hosts, Belarus and Iceland, uefa.com reports.
