PLDC - Tehran, Regarding his removal from Team Melli, the former head coach of Iran National football Team, said, “Everybody knew that Ahmadinejad ousted me from Team Melli.”
Everybody saw that my words came true after several years. I also added in the “Navad” program that Aliabadi brought me to Team Melli and the Football Federation had no role in this regard.
I was elected as the head coach of Team Melli in a session held in Azadi Stadium and I devoted all my time to my job. I cannot forget that when I was in the training of Saipa, Kafashian called me several times and I could not answer his phone. After that the CEO of Saipa told me that Kafashian wanted to talk to me. I got touch with Kafashian and he told me that Aliabadi wants to talk to you. After talking with Aliabadi, we arranged for a meeting in Azadi Stadium and talked about the issue.
Ahmadinejad ousted me from Team Melli and now after several years, the passage of time reveals everything. Of course, maybe it was my fate and destiny and it was God who dismissed me from Team Melli. Now, it is clear who says the right words in T.V. and who lies.”
Yesterday in an interview, Aliabadi, the former minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, announced that it was Ahmadinejad who dismissed Ali Daei from Team Melli.
