Mahmoud Fekri Finalizes Deal with Esteghlal

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Mahmoud Fekri finalized his contract with Esteghlal football team on Wednesday.

The 51-year-old coach resigned as Nassaji coach and penned a two-year contract with Esteghlal.

Fekri was a member of Esteghlal club as a player in two stints.

Foolad coach Javad Nekounam, ex-Esteghlal coach Farhad Majidi and German-Iranian trainer Alexander Nouri also were among the candidates.

Majidi parted ways with Esteghlal in early September and his assistant Majid Namjoo Motlagh headed the team in the 2020 AFC Champions League preliminary round, where Esteghlal failed to qualify for Round of 16.

The new edition of the Iran Professional League (IPL), also known as Persian Gulf Premier League, will begin on Oct. 31.
