|Persepolis coach remains silent on Ali Karimi issue||
Persepolis coach Manuel Jose is keeping quiet on the subject of Ali Karimi who has been out of the team since September.
Karimi has not played for Persepolis since he was left out of the team for the Sepahan clash, where the Reds lost 2-0 in Isfahan.
The Tehran-based team will play Rah Ahan on Sunday and, it seems, the Portuguese is not going to burry the hatchet with his premium midfielder.
When asked on Saturday if he is going to forgive Karimi, Manuel said, “I am not going to talk about the issue. I’ve already talked about that. There is nothing to say.”
Persepolis has no choice but to defeat Rah Ahan, the 66-year-old coach added.
“Our opponent is a well prepared team and we have a difficult task against them. Rah Ahan defends well but our players are also confident they can win the match,” Jose said.
“I hope that our fans support us against Rah Ahan. We need them as our twelfth player,” he concluded.
