Tasnim – NICOSIA, Reza Ghochannejhad ‘Gucci’ has no interest in playing in Iran Professional League (IPL) as he aims to continue his career in a European football team.
Gucci, who joined A-League club Sydney FC on loan from Cypriot club APOEL, is now a free agent player.
The 31-year-old forward has been continuously linked with a move to Iranian football clubs Persepolis, Tractor Sazi and Padideh.
“I am not interested in playing in Iran league and I want to continue my football in a European football club,” the former SC Heerenveen striker said.
The forward has played 44 times for Team Melli, scoring 17 goals and represented Iran in two World Cups, before retiring from international football after last year’s tournament in Russia.
