Human Afazeli Named Iran's Naft Tehran Coach
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Human Afazeli has been appointed as new head coach of Naft Tehran football team on Monday.
Afazeli is Naft’s fourth coach in the Iran Professional League (IPL) current season.
Naft Tehran started the season under guidance of Hamid Derakhshan but the Tehran-based team parted company with ex-Iran midfielder to work with Ali Karimi.
Naft Tehran also parted ways with Karimi and appointed Atila Hejazi as new head coach.
Hejazi also stepped down just after two weeks due to financial issues.
Afazeli has already coached Steel Azin and Iran U-23 football teams. He has been appointed as Naft Tehran coach until the end of the season.
