Florin Halagian (born 7 March 1939) is a former Romanian football player and manager of Armenian descent, hence the nickname Armeanul (The Armenian).
On 25 March 2008 he was decorated by the president of Romania, Traian Băsescu for all activity and quality of football coach, for forming young generation on future champions with Ordinul "Meritul Sportiv" — (The Order "The Sportive Merit") class III.
One of Halagian's famous reps as coach was: Focu' la ei! (Fire at them!), Armeanul explained: This is an expression that I invented to convey to the players on the pitch that the ball is good to be on the opponent half of the pitch, even if we have possession or not, I told them it is better to play there.
