Differences of opinion
Kirakosyan had been working with Ararat's reserve team and had previously been in charge of FC Dinamo Yerevan and FC Dinamo-Zenit, while he has also coached in Australia and Syria. Runners-up slot in 2008 represented the club's best achievement since finishing second in the 2000 campaign, and Ararat also won the Armenian Cup and competed in the UEFA Cup this season. They earned a place in qualifying for next season's inaugural UEFA Europa League, but Sukiasyan, who is also coach of Armenia's Under-21 team, nonetheless stepped down.
