Taremi Is Brilliant for Persepolis, Iran National Team: Football Tribe
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - While he did not play the last three months of the year for Persepolis due to a FIFA-imposed suspension regarding his 2016 transfer from Turkey’s Caykur Rizespor, Taremi has been brilliant for both his club and country this year.
The 25-year-old scored 18 goals in the 2016-17 season, topping the Persian Gulf Pro League’s scoring table for a second straight time.
He also scored seven goals in the AFC Champions league on the way to the Reds’ first semifinal appearance in 15 years, football-tribe.com reported.
Taremi’s brilliant national team performances, which included six goals against Qatar and China, were a key factor in Iran’s easy qualification for Russia 2018.
