Arif Asadov: "I do not consider this as history" – VIDEO

"I don't think about the record."

This was said by Arif Asadov, the coach of the Azerbaijan national team, who was a guest of the Idman Bizde program.

He commented on his history as the 3rd specialist who did not lose in the first two games he led the national team: "For me, the record may be that I won the world and European championship as a player, as a head coach I won the championship of Neftchi after 6 years, U- With the victory over the Armenian s with the 19-year-old, I won the stage for the first time in the history of Azerbaijani football, in the first championship of substitutes, Neftchi won under my leadership. I can take these as history. But I don't consider not losing in two games as history."

It should be noted that Asadov's team finished the meetings with Mongolia (1:0) and Bulgaria (1:1) without defeat. Until then, only Alakbar Mammadov and Shahin Diniyev's national debut was successful.
