TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Former coach of Iran national football team Marc Wilmots lauded Iran and Persepolis goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand.
The Iranian goalie arrived in Antwerp on Monday to join Royal Antwerp F.C. and now Wilmots has praised his former player.
“Ali is an excellent goalkeeper,” Wilmots told Het Nieuwsblad. “He can play excellent football, although he could not show his potential at the World Cup. Carlos Queiroz’s team was playing very defensive and this style kept Beiranvand on his line. Under coaching of me in Team Melli, he showed that he has very good feet.”
“He can throw the ball very, like Manuel Neuer. He is a charismatic leader and a world-class goalkeeper. Beiranvand is one of the best goalkeepers that I have worked with,” the former Red Devils coach added.
