Artur Yedigaryan (Armenian: Արթուր Եդիգարյան, born on 26 June 1987 in Yerevan, Soviet Union) is an Armenian football player who currently plays midfielder for the Armenian national team and for Kazakhstan Premier League club Kairat Almaty.

Club career[edit]

Artur Yedigaryan was born in Yerevan to a family of football players, which naturally affected his future. He started football at the age of 6. Also an important factor is that the Yedigaryan lived in a house that is located next to the Republican Stadium. The first coach of Yedigaryan was Hovik Ghazanchyan. He is a graduate of football school Pyunik Yerevan. As part of Pyunik, Yedigaryan became a multiple champion of the Armenian Premier League in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, the Armenian Cup in 2009 and the Armenian Supercup in 2007 and 2008. Before the end of the Armenian Premier League in 2009, Yedigaryan was loaned to the PAS Hamedan club in the Iran Pro League.[1]

Upon termination of the contract with Hamedan, Yedigaryan, again on loan, went to Banants Yerevan, becoming the first rookie club in anticipation of the club to participate in the European Cup.[2] Productively after playing six-month on the contract, Edigaryan returned to Pyunik. In December, Bulgarian media reported that the Bulgarian club Chernomorets Burgas is interested in his services.[3] However, the coaching staff did not comment on this information, which was then forgotten.

In early 2012, Yedigaryan expressed his interest in nearby Moscow club Khimki. Edigaryan later joined the team for training camp. Due to financial disagreements between the clubs, the football transfer took long to be confirmed.[4] On February 24, Yedigaryan signed with Khimki. Details of the transfer had not been spread abroad.[5] In late June, Yedigaryan, with Artak Aleksanyan, left the club.[6] In early August, he returned to his native club Pyunik, together with Tigran Kandikyan and Eric Yeghiazaryan. Yedigaryan entered into an agreement with the club until the end of the 2012-13 season.[7] In the short first game, he was released in the starting lineup against Impuls FC Dilijan. At the 67th minute, he was replaced by Artur Grigoryan.[8]

In mid-August, Yedigaryan traveled to Uzhhorod, where he held a preview at local club Hoverla Uzhhorod.[9][10] The interview was a success and the club signed with Yedigaryan and he also received a club T-shirt with the number 22.[11][12] On August 25, in the 7th round of the Ukrainian Premier League, he made his debut in the guest game against Illichivets Mariupol. He played 60 minutes and was replaced after the first goal was scored by Sotiris Balafas.[13][14]

Yedigaryan was released by FC Kairat following the completion of the 2014 season. [15]

International career[edit]

Artur Yedigaryan made his debut for the Armenia national team on 2 February 2008 in an away friendly match against Malta.

Personal life[edit]

Artur's older brother Artak Yedigaryan also plays for the Armenia national football team. Their father, Gegham Yedigaryan, was a Soviet football player and their grandfather Felix Veranyan was also a football player and is currently a football manager. Artur is married to a woman named Gayane. The couple were classmates and have a daughter.[16]
