Red Star DG Terzic's words heard in Yerevan: Armenians touched by message about their troubles
The Armenians, who are going through difficult moments, liked the friendly message
Ararat fans and followers of Armenian football were touched by a statement that came from the Red Star Belgrade football club's camp before the two sides' Europa League qualifying match.
Red Star did not put pressure for the match to be moved from Armenia due to the war situation that country is in with Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh. The Serbian champions instead waited for UEFA's decision and accepted that this decisive match should be played in Yerevan.
"If you ask me personally, I am in favor of the match being played in Armenia. I don't want to take advantage of the trouble Armenian people are facing for our own benefit. I do not want that. If the draw has already decided that we will play away for the third time, so be it," said Red Star Director General Zvezdan Terzic, as reported by the Armenian media.
The Armenians have offered all the guarantees to UEFA and claim that the match can be played without any problems, while on social networks, many took the statement from the Red Star camp with great respect.
