Farhad Majidi

PLDC – Iran U-23 football team head coach Farhad Majidi announced his resignation less than four months.

He replaced Croatian coach Zlatko Kranjcar in Iran Olympic team but stepped down from his role for problems with the team’s technical committee.

“I will step down from my role as head coach of Iran’s U-23 football team due to interference in my job. I spent too much time solving the problem and I’d rather stay away from the team in the shameful situation ahead of the important tournament like the AFC U-23 Championship. The non-standard ways dictated by technical committee didn't reflect my values,” Majidi posted on his Instagram account.

Farhad Majidi Resigns

Iran U-23 football team has a difficult task ahead since the team has been drawn in Group C of the AFC U23 Championship along with South Korea, Uzbekistan and China.


Just three teams will qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games and Majidi opted to resign from his post before the competition begins.

Branko Ivankovic is reportedly a candidate to take charge of the team.

Iran has not qualified for the Olympic Games since the 1976 games in Munich.
