Özbiliz announces retirement, bid for FFA presidency

YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 22, ARMENPRESS. Footballer Aras Özbiliz has announced his retirement.

He said at a press conference on November 22 that he will run for the presidency of the Football Federation of Armenia in the upcoming elections. 

“Football gave me more than I could imagine,” the former Armenia winger said. “I am quitting my football career, but this is the beginning of a new path. I would’ve been able to play on another level with my potential if not for the injuries…I’ve always said that I would be useful to Armenian football after retiring. I think Armenian football is now at an important crossroads. I am nominating my candidacy in the FFA elections. I can be greatly useful to Armenian football with my experience and devotion,” Özbiliz said.

The elections of a new president of the Football Federation will take place on December 23rd.
