I’d like to continue my career in Europe: Mehdi Taremi

May 16, 2016

Persepolis international striker Mehdi Taremi stated that he will most likely leave the Iranian most popular team in order to continue his career in Europe.

“Every player wants to play in Europe’s top league and I’m no exception of that. I’m studying the offers and will choose my next team in the coming weeks. I’m now 24-year-old and it’s getting late to move to Europe because I want to improve and become a complete player,” Taremi said in an interview with his official website.
“I would like to thank our fans who supported us from the first week, when we were at the bottom of the league, until the final week. We could have won the league if we had scored more goals but this is football and can’t predict it,” Taremi added.
Persepolis defeated arch-rival Esteghlal 4-2 in Tehran derby on April 15. Taremi netted a brace in the crucial match, set up a goal and missed a penalty.
“Winning the derby was one of the best moments of the season. With respect to Esteghlal and its fans, it was an easy game which we knew that we would win it before the game,” the 24-year-old striker added.
Taremi, who has scored 18 goals in 23 appearances for Persepolis, won the top scorer award of 2015-16 Iran Professional League season. It is reported that he has received offers from Russia, Turkey and Italy.
