TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Persepolis head coach Yahya Golmohammadi has been nominated for the best coaches of the 2020 AFC Champions League (West).
Replacing one of the most successful head coaches at a club the size of Persepolis is a daunting task for anyone, and following the short-lived Gabriel Calderon stint, former defender Golmohammadi was tasked with restoring the club to the unprecedented heights achieved under Branko Ivankovic between 2015 and 2019.
The 49-year-old had represented Persepolis for four years in the 1990s and managed it briefly in 2012-13, but this time he was coming into a side that had won three consecutive Iran Professional League titles and reached the AFC Champions League semi-final in 2017 and final in 2018.
He will compete with Rui Vitoria (Al-Nassr), Vladan Milojevic (Al-Ahli) and Shota Arveladze (Pakhtakor) to be named as the best coach.
