Tehran Times - Persepolis coach Branko Ivankovic says that they played a modern football in the match against Naft Tehran Friday night.
Persepolis defeated Naft Tehran 3-0 in Iran’s Super Cup in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium.
“Our responsible in football is to earn the most wins. The league’s curtain-raiser was very worthy for us and I am happy we started the new season with a trophy. I hope we will win more trophies,” Ivankovic said.
“We played a modern football against Naft Tehran and created so many scoring chances. We are not fully prepared yet but I think we have enough time to get ready for the match against Al-Ahli,” the Croat added.
“I believe in my players as we showed several good performances in the AFC Champions League. Persepolis were drawn in the toughest group but could advance to the next stage,” the Persepolis coach concluded.
