Tasnim – TEHRAN, Iranian football club Esteghlal is reportedly going to hire Spanish coach Jose Murcia.
Murcia is currently leading Qatari club Al Shahania and is a target to replace Winfried Schaefer, Al Kass reported.
Esteghlal parted company with the German coach in late April following poor results in the Iran Professional League.
Assistant coach Farhad Majidi replaced Schaefer until the end of the season.
Esteghlal general manager Amir Hossein Fathi had already said the team’s next coach will not be an Iranian coach.
