Farshid Esmaeili

Tasnim – Iranian Esteghlal football club's midfielder Farshid Esmaeili has been sidelined for the rest of the season due to the injury.

Esmaeili has suffered a lower abdominal injury and must undergo surgery.


With four weeks remaining, Esteghlal is second in Iran Professional League (IPL) table, five points adrift of leader Persepolis.

Esmaeili, who missed a penalty in Tehran derby against Persepolis in late March, is a pivotal player for the Blues and his absence would be a huge blow for them.
