Tasnim – TEHRAN, Sohrab Bakhtiarizadeh is on the verge of being named the new head coach of Iran’s U-19 football team.
He is in waiting room to be confirmed by board of directors of the Iran Football Federation.
Ex-Esteghlal coach Alireza Mansourian was also among the candidates but he didn’t reach an agreement with the football federation.
