(MENAFN) In a recent development in Iranian football, Mehdi Rahmati has assumed the role of head coach for Nassaji, a top-tier football club in the Iran Professional League (IPL). The 40-year-old coach has taken over from Carlos Inarejos, a Spanish coach who previously led the team. Nassaji, which finished in the 13th position in the league last season, had also been in negotiations with Saket Elhami, the coach of Havadar. However, ultimately, they reached an agreement with Rahmati to lead the team.
Mehdi Rahmati, a former goalkeeper for the Iranian national team and Esteghlal, has been gradually transitioning into coaching since 2020. He started his coaching career with Padideh and most recently served as the head coach of Aluminum during the previous season. Now, Rahmati is ready to take on the challenge of leading Nassaji to new heights in the IPL.
Nassaji's decision to appoint Rahmati as their head coach comes as they prepare to represent Iran in the prestigious 2023 AFC Champions League. With this opportunity on the horizon, the club is seeking to strengthen its coaching staff and assemble a competitive team that can perform well in the continental tournament. Rahmati's experience as a player and his recent coaching endeavors make him a suitable candidate to guide Nassaji's players towards success.
As Nassaji looks to improve upon their previous season's performance, the appointment of Mehdi Rahmati brings a fresh perspective and a wealth of knowledge to the team. His understanding of Iranian football and his experience at both domestic and international levels will be valuable assets in guiding Nassaji's players on the field. With his leadership, the club hopes to achieve their goals and make a mark in the IPL and the upcoming AFC Champions League.
