Cesare Prandelli Iran

PLDC – Former Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has emerged as a potential candidate to take over at Iranian club Persepolis.

The 61-year-old coach has most recently coached Serie A football side Genoa.

Prandelli led Italy national football team from 2010 to 2014 and finished in second place with Azzurri at 2012 European Football Championship.

He also won a bronze medal at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup with Italy.

Persepolis is without a coach after parting ways with Branko Ivankovic.

The Croatian coach has been named as new head coach of Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia last week.


Ivankovic led Persepolis to win the Iran Professional League title three times. Under tutelage of the Croat, Persepolis also won one Hazfi Cup and three Super Cups.

Greek coach Takis Lemonis, Croatian coaches Ante Cacic and Krunoslav "Kruno" Jurcic, Italian managers Massimo Carrera and Walter Zenga and Alexander Nouri are the other candidates to take the helm at Persepolis.
