"We will try to perform successfully in the Azerbaijan Mini-Football League. We will do our best to get medals."

Afran Ismayilov, the captain of the newly formed "Khankendi" mini-football club, expressed this to the Idman.biz website.

He said that they will work to carry this name successfully: "Our dream is to hold games and events in Khankendi. In order to be successful, I gathered former members of the Azerbaijan national team around me."

Khatai Bagirov, a member of the national futsal team, will be the head coach of the team founded and captained by Afran Ismayilov. Well-known figures Rashad Sadigov, Kamran Agayev, Javid Huseynov, Rahid Amirguliev, Elvin Mammadov, Ruslan Amirjanov, Javid Imamverdiyev, Elhad Nazirov, Rauf Aliyev, Rail Malikov and Ruslan Abishov will be in the team of "Khankendi".

Ismayilov also talked about his advantages and future plans: "Mini football and big football are completely different. Of course, our main advantage is our ability to play with the ball. In order to improve standard situations, tactical moves and one-on-one games, we brought Khatai Bagirov, a player of the Azerbaijan national futsal team, to the team as a head coach. We have already had 3-4 trainings as a team. We are seriously preparing. The beginning of November is the draw, and the championship will start on the 15th. We will try so that "Khankendi" will be in the highest places."

It should be noted that a day ago, the president of the Azerbaijan Mini-Football Federation (AMF) Orkhan Mammadov met with the members of the "Khankendi" club.
