Karapet Mikaelyan (Armenian: Կարապետ Միքայելյան, born 27 September 1969, Moscow, Soviet Union) is a former Russia born Armenian football striker. Karapet was also a member of Armenia national team, participated in 20 international matches and scored 2 goals since his debut on 5 October 1996, in away match against Northern Ireland.

Health problems[edit]

In September 2011, Mikaelyan has been diagnosed with severe heart failure and was in urgent need of heart transplantation.[1] The fans of his former clubs FC Zvezda Irkutsk and FC Krylia Sovetov Samara had raised funds to finance his heart surgery.[2] However, the president of Armenian Football Federation Ruben Hayrapetyan has announced that the heart operation will be financed through his federation.

Mikaelyan underwent heart surgery on 14 March 2013. The Union of Football Players and Coaches of Russia was raising money for Mikayelyan’s surgery since February 25. The 935,000 rubles (approx. $30,487)-worth surgery went successfully. FC Krylia Sovetov and the Football Federation of Armenia were among those that had provided financial support to Karapet Mikaelyan.[3]
