Artak Dashyan (Armenian: Արտակ Դաշյան, born on 20 November 1989 in Yerevan, Armenia) is an Armenian football player who currently plays midfielder for Armenian Premier League club Gandzasar Kapan. He was formerly a member of the Armenia national football team.

Club career

Artak Dashyan is a graduate of the football school Shengavit. In 2006, he received an invitation from Banants Yerevan, for which he began performing for in the Armenian Premier League in 2007. Dashyan's potential began to show at an early age. His game drew the attention of the head coach of the club, and then the football team.

In the 2009 Armenian Premier League, during a 24 round game between Banants and Shirak Gyumri, he insulted the referee and was immediately sent off. The Football Federation of Armenia Disciplinary Committee decided to disqualify the player for the next four matches of the Armenian Premier League and his club was fined $ 150 000 AMD.[1]

After meeting in Metalurh Donetsk, coached by former Banants head coach Nikolay Kostov,[2] Dashyan had signed a contract for 3 years with the possibility of renewal in another 2.[3][4]

Dashyan rarely got into matches and left the touch-lines only as a replacement player. Metalurh decided to put the player on loan. The main stakeholder in getting the player was former club Banants. As a result, the leaders of the two clubs reached an agreement on the transition of Dashyan on lease conditions to Banants. Dashyan effortlessly merged with the plans of the coaching team. After the retirement of team captain Arthur Voskanyan in mid-season, the new team captain became Arsen Balabekyan and Dashyan became vice-captain. After the conclusion of the season, the club decided not to renew the contract with Balabekyan, who left the club. Dashyan thus became the team captain. In 2013, he was transferred to Gandzasar Kapan.[5]

International career

Dashyan joined the Armenia U-21 youth team in 2008. A year later, he became a member of the Armenia national football team. His first match with the national team was held on February 11, 2009 in Cyprus in a friendly match against Latvia. The match ended 0-0. Dashyan subsequently played in a FIFA World Cup qualification match against Spain on October 10, 2009 (1- loss) and a friendly match against Iran on August 11, 2010 (1-3 Loss). He has not been called back to the national team since.

Personal life

He got married in late November 2011.[6]
