Ali Karimi Named Iran's Sanate Naft Talaieh Coach
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Ali Karimi has been named as head coach of Sanate Naft Talaieh Football Club.
The former Bayern Munich and Persepolis midfielder replaced Hamid Derakhshan in the Iranian top-flight team.
Karimi was named as head coach of Naft Tehran in early July but stepped down as his role due to financial problems.
Naft Tehran was assigned to Sanate Naft Talaieh Company and the new owners have selected Karimi as new team’s head coach once again.
Under guidance of Hamid Derakhshan, Naft Tehran just won one match in five weeks in Iran Professional League (IPL).
Sanate Naft Talaieh sits 13th in the table.
