Tasnim – Former Bayern Munich forward has been appointed as assistant coach of Marc Wilmots in Iran national football team on Wednesday.
The Belgian coach has also chosen Spanish coach Manu Ferrera as his first assistant.
“I’ve chosen Vahid Hashemian as my Iranian assistant since he has worked in Bundesliga and is fluent in German. It can facilitate the connections,” Wilmots said in his first news conference.
Hashemian gained B and A coaching licenses when playing in Germany.
On 26 October 2012, he was appointed as coach of Regionalliga side SV Halstenbek-Rellingen in the Hamburg Oberliga but after a successful run with the team, he announced his resignation at the end of the season.
In 2014, he continued his UEFA Pro License under Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich.
