TABRIZ(ArmRadio)—Armenian center back Varazdat Haroyan’s contract with Iranian Tractor Sazi Tabriz Football Club has been cancelled because of discontent on the part of the club’s Azerbaijani fans, an Iranian football website varzesh3.com reports.

On June 6, Tractor Sazi Tabriz Football Club announced a two-year deal with the Armenian international and posted his photo on its website.

However, in a statement released on June 7, the club said “Haroyan’s ethnicity has caused outrage among the Azerbaijani supporters of the club.”

The statement urges to “put an end to the debate and move forward.” The club will now negotiate with other players to strengthen its defense line.

    Good. I hope Haroyan joins a competitive club and beats the crap out of them. Those fans don’t deserve an Armenian player.
