Majid Jalali sacked by Iranian football club Saipa

May 3, 2016

Saipa football club sacked its coach Majid Jalali two weeks before the end of the season due to poor results in recent weeks.

Former Malavan coach Farhad Pourgholami has been appointed as the interim coach until the end of the season.

Jalali who was appointed as Saipa coach in May 2014 with a three-year contract had his worst record with the club in his entire career.  Jalali’s record of 24 wins from 61 games gives him a win percentage of just 39.34 per cent which is worse than his statics at Pas, Saba, Foolad and even Tractor Sazi.

Pourgholami, who was Jalali’s assistant in recent years at Tractor Sazi and Saipa, will now be in charge of the Oranges.

Saipa is currently in 10th place with 36 points and will take on Esteghlal Ahvaz and Naft Tehran in the remaining two weeks of the league.
