Esteghlal parts company with Parviz Mazloumi

May 31, 2016

TEHRAN – Iranian giant football club Esteghlal has parted ways with Parviz Mazloumi.

Esteghlal came third under tutelage of Mazloumi in the Iran Professional League 2015-16 season behind Esteghlal Khuzestan and arch-rival Persepolis.

Esteghlal lost to Zob Ahan in the Iran’s Hazfi Cup final match in penalty shootout on Sunday.

The Blues are reluctant to continue their cooperation with Mazloumi, who was appointed as Esteghlal coach in June 2015 on a two-year contract.


Alireza Mansourian and Dragan Skocic are favorites to take the job.


The Iranian media suggest that Mansourian, who led Naft Tehran to AFC Champions League, will be the team’s head coach for the next season.
