Armenia sack losing coach Casoni

Casoni was given little breathing space by the Armenia federation.

YEREVAN, Armenia -- Armenia's French coach Bernard Casoni was sacked Tuesday following a string a poor performances, federation president Ruben Airapetyan said.

Casoni, 42, took over in August last year but in seven matches Armenia have lost five, drawn one and beaten minnows Andorra.

"We were very dissatisfied with the coach's work, especially his choice of players for games and his work methods," Airapetyan said.

Casoni is a former France and Marseille defender and coached Marseille for a season in 1999-2000.

Hayrapetyan said a new coach would be named within the next 10 days.

Armenia share last place in European Zone Group One with Andorra after their most recent defeat, a 2-0 loss to the Netherlands.
