Esteghlal defender Hanif Omranzadeh will be sidelined for at least two weeks after foot injury.
He was injured in the friendly match against USM Alger in Turkey, where the Iranian team lost 3-2 to the Algeria champion.
Omranzadeh traveled to Tehran on Wednesday to begin his recovery.
“An MRI scan will show the extent of his injury. He will miss at least two weeks,” Esteghlal doctor Kaveh Sotoodeh told the club’s website.
Esteghlal had already lost to Bursaspor 2-0 on Friday in its first friendly match.
Amir Ghalenoei’s men are preparing for the 14th edition of the Iran Professional League, which will kick off from July 31.
Esteghlal came in fifth place in the last season.
