Alireza Mansourian Emerges as A Candidate to Coach Iran's Sepahan: Reports
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Sepahan football team has shown interest in hiring former Esteghlal coach Alireza Mansourian as new coach, according to Iranian local media reports.
Mansourian has not coached any team after parting company with Esteghlal in September and local media reports suggest that he is a candidate to take charge of Sepahan.
Yahya Golmohammadi, who has been dismissed as his coaching role in Tractor Sazi Tabriz, and former Zob Ahan coach Mansour Ebrahimzadeh are also among the candidates to coach the Isfahan-based football team.
Sepahan sacked Croatian football coach Zlatko Kranjcar on Saturday following poor results in Iran Professional League.
Karim Ghanbari has been named as Sepahan’s interim coach.
Sepahan sits 12th in Iran Professional League, just seven points above the relegation zone.
