Tasnim – KUALA LUMPUR, Esteghlal football team hitman Amir Arsalan Motahari was selected the best 2020 ACL (West) forward by the fans.

Using match data from the tournament, selected seven standout performers who completed the 2020 AFC Champions League (West) to present a star-studded cast.

Part of an exciting Esteghlal frontline, Motahari joined the Tehran giant from Zob Ahan in early 2020 and scored on his second AFC Champions League appearance for them – a 2-1 loss to Al-Ahli Saudi in February – before making a crucial contribution in Doha.

With his side a goal down against Iraq’s Al-Shorta, substitute Motahari pounced on a loose ball to level the scores and secure a 1-1 draw.

That result left qualification in the Iranian side’s hands as it went on to claim a 3-0 win over Al-Ahli to progress to the next round at Al-Shorta’s expense.

Motaahri won the poll with 44.56 percent of votes, beating Pedro Conde, Igor Sergeev, Almoez Ali, Welliton, Baghdad Bounedjah and Abderrazak Hamdallah.
