Dragan Skocic Shortlisted to Lead Persepolis: Report

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Former Iran national football team head coach Dragan Skocic has reportedly been shortlisted to lead Persepolis.

Brazilian coach Osmar Loss Vieira will likely leave Persepolis and the Iranian club is going to find a replacement for the coach.

Osmar led Persepolis to the title in the 2023-24 Iran Professional League (IPL) but has not yet extended his deal.

Now, the media reports suggest that Persepolis has opened negotiations with ex-Team Melli coach Skocic.

The 56-year-old coach has previously worked in Iranian clubs Malavan, Foolad and Sanat Naft.

Also, Croatia’s Petar Segrt is another coach linked with Persepolis’ hotseat.

He was most recently the head coach of the Tajikistan national team.

Montenegrin coach Nebojsa Jovovic, who has most recently worked in the Emirati club Khor Fakkan, is among the candidates as well.
