Tasnim – TEHRAN, A final list of five candidates to be considered for the vacant Iran Olympic football team job has been made.
Hamid Estili, technical manager of Iran U23 football team, said they are trying to choose Olympic coach as soon as possible.
“Nassaji Mazandaran coach Javad Nekounam, Sepidrood coach Ali Karimi, Foolad coach Sirous Pourmousavai and ex-Iran assistant coach Hossein Faraki are the Iranian candidates. Croatian coach Zlatko Kranjcar is also among the nominees to take charge of the team,” Estili told the Tasnim news agency.
