Tasnim – TEHRAN, Persepolis assistant coach Serten Cuk has parted company with the Iranian football team.
Persepolis coach Branko Ivankovic said Cuk has left the team because he has been appointed as manager of grassroots program in Croatia Football Federation.
Iranian media reports suggest that Branko’s brother Zlatko will replace Cuk in Persepolis.
Cuk was named as Persepolis coach in June 2016 and played a role in the Iranian giants’ success in the last season.
He has also worked at Croatian football clubs NK Lokomotiva and Dinamo Zagreb.
Persepolis topped the table at the first half of the Iran Professional League season.
