Paris NN midfielder Edgar Sevikyan spoke Youtube channel About the negative and positive reactions to his decision to play for the Armenian national team in the Russian Premier League (RPL).
“I realized that someone might take it badly, someone might condemn it. Someone, on the contrary, can understand and accept. There was a lot of support. Let’s say Edik Spertsyan wrote after my statement,” Sevikyan said.
22-year-old Sevikyan has been playing for Paris NN since 2022. He played 16 matches for the club and scored one goal.
The International Football Federation (FIFA) and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) have decided to suspend the participation of the Russian national team and all Russian clubs in all competitions controlled by these organizations in the spring of 2022.
In September, the Russian national team led by Karpin held a training camp and played three test matches in this camp: two matches with the Egyptian Olympic team (1:1, 1:2) and one match with Qatar (1:1).
Previously Valery Karpin Reacted Sevikyan’s refusal to play for the Russian national team.
