Iran Football Federation Parts Company with Marco Octavio
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Football Federation of the Islamic Republic of Iran (FFIRI) has parted company with Brazilian beach soccer coach Marco Octavio.
Marco Octavio had been appointed as Team Melli coach for the fourth time in July 2017 but he leaves the Iranian team ahead of Persian Beach Soccer Cup due to personal problems.
Team Melli came first under tutelage of Octavio’s assistant Abbas Hashempour after beating Azerbaijan, Ukraine and Spain.
