The award of the best coach of the year granted by FFA has raised concerns for years. Sports journalists continue recognizing Abraham Khashmanyan as best coach for several years, whereas FFA committee votes for another coach.
This year it was the same. The Armenia champion, super coach Abraham Khashmanyan did not receive the award. Having concluded, that their votes will not change anything, journalists gave him a separate award.
There was also an award for the best player of the year, which was granted to the Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The Armenian Football Media Awards defined by Totalfootball is expected to become an annual event.
