PLDC – Newly-appointed Tractor Sazi coach John Toshack says he wants to win Iran Professional League (IPL) with the Iranian team. 

The 69-year-old Welshman has signed a three-year contract with Tractor Sazi for an undisclosed fee on Sunday. 

Toshack, who has won La Liga title with Real Madrid in 1990 and Copa del Rey in 1987 as head coach of Real Sociedad, says he wants to claim IPL title with Iran’s Tractor Sazi.

“One day, somebody asked me about retirement and I said to him I would retire when I died. Now. I am in search of new challenge with Tractor Sazi,” Toshack said in an interview with Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo. 

“Iran is a different country and his national team is heading by Carlos Queiroz. We have so much in common,” Toshack added.

The Welshman has also coached Swansea City, Sporting CP, Real Sociedad (twice), Wales national football team, Besiktas, Saint-Etienne, Macedonia national football team and Khazar Lankaran.

Under coaching of Turkish gaffer Ertugrul Saglam, Tractor Sazi finished in 10th place in Iran Professional League (IPL) last season. 

The IPL new season will kick off on July 26.
