TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Greek coach Takis Lemonis has been nominated as a replacement for Branko Ivankovic in Persepolis.
Ivankovic parted company with the Iranian club to join Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia last week.
Lemonis, 59, is a new candidate to lead Persepolis.
He has been without a job since parting ways with Olympiakos in January 2018.
Ante Cacic, Massimo Carrera, Alexander Nouri, Krunoslav "Kruno" Jurcic and Walter Zenga are the other candidates to take the helm at Persepolis.
Ivankovic led Persepolis to win the Iran Professional League title three times. Under tutelage of the Croat, Persepolis also won one Hazfi Cup and three Super Cups.
