Hovhannes Harutyunyan Bids Farewell to Pyunik: Russian Sochi Welcomes the Midfielder

FC Pyunik's talented midfielder, Hovhannes Harutyunyan, is set to embark on a new journey with Russian club Sochi, as officially announced by Pyunik in a recent statement.

A product of Pyunik's academy, Harutyunyan's football journey has been closely tied to the Armenian club. Making his debut in the main team back in 2016, Harutyunyan's contributions to Pyunik have been noteworthy.

His return to Pyunik from Ararat-Armenia in 2021 proved instrumental, playing a key role in securing the title of Armenian champions. During that season, Harutyunyan showcased his skills in 34 domestic championship games, impressively scoring four goals and providing as many assists.

The summer of 2022 marked a historic period for Pyunik in the European Cup, with Harutyunyan's significant contributions helping the team navigate through the Champions League's qualifying rounds and making a groundbreaking appearance in the Conference League group stage. Notably, he played a vital role in securing the first victory for Armenian clubs in the European tournament's group stage. In the same season, the 24-year-old midfielder stood out with one goal and three assists in five European Cup games.

Harutyunyan's dedication to Pyunik was further highlighted when he celebrated his 100th match in the team's colors during the previous season. The fall part of the 2023/24 season witnessed the midfielder achieving a personal record, marking the most productive season of his career by scoring 11 goals and providing 3 assists in domestic tournaments.

The impact of Harutyunyan's performance extended beyond club football, earning him a call-up to the Armenia national team after his move to Pyunik. His notable achievements were acknowledged in 2022 when he secured a place in the top five of the Best Player of Armenia through popular voting.

As Harutyunyan bids farewell to Pyunik, the club expressed gratitude for his contributions and extended best wishes for his continued success in his football career. The move to Russian Sochi marks a new chapter for the talented midfielder, and fans eagerly anticipate the heights he will reach in his future endeavors.
