Zlatko Kranjcar parts company with Sepahan

January 20, 2018

Zlatko Kranjcar has parted company with Iranian top-flight football club Sepahan.

Kranjcar replaced Abdollah Veisi in May on a two-year contract but was forced to leave Isfahan after a run of results that has seen Sepahan creep closer to the relegation zone.

Karim Ghanbari has taken charge of the team as interim coach.

Sepahan newly-appointed General Manager Masoud Tabesh said that Kranjcar has parted ways with them by mutual consent.

According to him, a European coach and an also Iranian coach are candidates to be named as Sepahan new coach.

Sepahan are struggling in the Iran Professional League current season and they are just seven points above the relegation zone.

Sepahan are the most decorated football team in Iran Professional League, winning the title five times.

Iranian media reports suggest that former Zob Ahan coach Mansour Ebrahimzadeh is a nominee to coach Sepahan.
