TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Persepolis interim general manager Mehdi Rasoul Panah announced his resignation on Friday.
He had replaced Mohammad Hassan Ansarifard in the team back in March.
Rasoul Panah was under pressure due to a leaked video that shows him using foul language against some of Persepolis’ members.
Rasoul Panah was forced to leave the club after creating many controversies.
He failed to convince Persepolis defenders Shoja Khalilzadeh and Mohammad Naderi to extend their contracts.
Khalilzadeh joined Al-Rayyan of Qatar and Naderi signed for Persepolis’ archrival Esteghlal which left the fans furious.
Persepolis will start the Iran Professional League in early November and the Reds will also participate in the 2020 AFC Champions League final.
