FAREWELL IRAN AND HELLO TO THE FUTURE
For the past six years, it has been a pleasure to serve the Iran National A Team as Assistant Coach, Team Coordinator and Goalkeeper Coach. I am excited to explore new opportunities and share the valuable knowledge and experiences I gained working on this amazing and challenging project.
I am proud that I was a part of the team that qualified for the 2014 Brazil World Cup, 2015 Asian Cup and 2018 Russia World Cup – triumphs for the Iranian people. Our many successes were the result of a hardworking and talented technical staff and administrators. I am honored to have worked alongside them all.
I have admiration for the Team Melli players. Despite the many obstacles, they played with courage, determination and love for their country.
I have enormous gratitude for the fans that offered incredible support during the entire journey. They are amazing passionate soccer fans.
I wish the Iran National Team success as they prepare for the 2018 Russia World Cup. I have no doubt they will represent their country with dignity.
I am grateful to everyone who has followed me on the many journeys throughout my career. Thank you for all your support and best wishes.
As this chapter ends, I look forward to starting a new one and seeing what the future holds!
Happy to be home with family.
