Italy national football squad and Manchester United F.C. (England) defender Matteo Darmian dismissed the rumors that he was Armenian.
At the request of Armenian News-NEWS.am reporter Vera Martirosyan, NTV-Plus Russian television correspondent Mikhail Mossakovsky asked the footballer whether the information about him being Armenian is accurate, since one year ago, the FIFA official website had noted Darmian’s nationality as Armenian.
“No, I’m not Armenian,” he said. “There was a mistake in the FIFA website. This is an official response.”
