TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Persepolis Argentine coach Gabriel Calderon says the Iranian team’s goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand is the best in Asia.

Akram Afif from Qatar won the award over the Iranian keeper.
“It’s a great honor for us to see Beiranvand among the nominees. I believe that he is the best goalkeeper in Asia,” Calderon said.
“In my opinion, Persepolis’s fans should be proud of him for being in the list,” the Persepolis coach added.
