Tasnim – ISFAHAN, Most successful coach in the Iran Professional League (IPL) Amir Ghalenoei has been named as new head coach of Sepahan football team.
Sepahan, who escaped relegation last season, has penned a two-year contract with Ghalenoei.
Ghalenoei helped Zob Ahan finishes runner-up in IPL and the team advanced to AFC Champions League Round of 16 under tutelage of the 54-year-old coach.
Sepahan started the season with currently Iran Olympic coach Zlatko Kranjcar but parted ways with the Croat in January following the poor results.
Ex-Zob Ahan coach Mansour Ebrahimzadeh was named as new head coach of Sepahan but he also failed to keep team on the track.
Ghalenoei has won IPL title three times with Esteghlal and has led Sepahan to title two times.
