PLDC – Iran’s Sepahan football club has reached a basic agreement with Amir Ghalenoei.
The current Zob Ahan coach will reportedly leave his team to join Sepahan within the next few days.
Under coaching of Ghalenoei, Zob Ahan finished runner-up in the Iran Professional League and advanced to the AFC Champions League Round of 16, where the Isfahan-based football team lost to Esteghlal 3-2 on aggregate.
Ghalenoei has led Sepahan to Iran Professional League back-to-back titles in 2010 and 2011.
Sepahan has confirmed the negotiations with Ghalenoei are ongoing to return the coach to the team.
Former Esteghlal coach Alireza Mansourian is a candidate to replace Ghalenoei in Zob Ahan.
