Amir Hossein Sadeghi Pays Tribute to Esteghlal Technical Team
Amir Hossein Sadeghi, the defender of Esteghlal FC and Iran national football team, said on Friday that Esteghlal will be able to win AFC Champions League, if players follow the guidelines and orders of technical team. Currently, Amir Ghalenoei is the head coach of Esteghlal FC.
“Esteghlal has great opportunity for winning the title of AFC Champions League. Currently, top-notch players are serving for Esteghlal and they have enough potential to claim the title of ACL. On the other hand, Amir Ghalenoei has great international experiences and I am sure that he can lead the team to grab this achievable title.” Amir Hossein Sadeghi told reporters after extending his contract for one more season.
Sadeghi also went on to say that he had ‘smooth’ negotiations with Esteghlal’s team officials. “I have played for this club since many years ago. Two other clubs were also looking to sign with me, but I am belonged to Esteghlal and its lovely fans. So I decided to renew my contract with this team without any problems.”
“The upcoming season will be a tough year for me, Team Melli and Esteghlal. We must compete in knock-out phase of AFC Champions League with Esteghlal. As Iran national football team has qualified for 2014 FIFA World Cup, I must try to do my best in order to convince the head coach to invite me for World Cup.” Amir Hossein Sadeghi concluded.
