After Tuesday’s Esteghlal’s Board of Directors, it was decided that Parviz Mazloumi to continue his post as the head coach of Blues until after the Saba match in the final week of Iran professional League.

Esteghlal’s 3-2 loss defeat against Tractor Sazi in front of more than 70,000 fans at Azadi Stadium destroyed the Blues’ hopes of winning the title.
Esteghlal 4-2 defeat against archrival Persepolis in last month’s Tehran derby was a big loss for Esteghlal and made their fans angry.
Mazloumi who signed a three-year contract with Esteghlal in June 2015 has also led his team to the Hazfi Cup final. Esteghlal will take on Zob Ahan in the Hazfi Cup final on May 29 in Khorramshahr.
Esteghlal is currently in third place with 51 points while Persepolis and Esteghlal Khuzestan are at the top with 54 points and just the goal difference has separated them.
