Sports Minister Soltanifar asks FIFA to consider Iran’s situation

Sports Minister Soltanifar

Tehran Times - Iran’s Minister of Sport and Youth Masoud Soltanifar has expressed hope that FIFA would agree with the Football Federation of Islamic Republic of Iran (FFIRI) elections to be held on the scheduled time considering the current situation in the country.

Football international governing body has recently sent letters to the Iranian federation, emphasizing that the FFIRI General Assembly, scheduled for 15 March 2020, should be postponed.

FIFA hinted that the current version of the FFIRI statutes contains several particularly problematic provisions such as government interference in the elections.

In a meeting with some sports executives Soltanifar said: “We are facing an emergency, a national emergency.”

“I hope that FIFA considers the current situation and allows the FFIRI to hold the elections, the same as the previous two elections. Iranian football has important days ahead, and the appointment of the new head is crucial for us.” He added.

Remove all these leaches, using every excuse they can to withhold power that is not theirs to keep. Place Ali Daei as head of FFIRI, and Mehdi Mahdavikia as head of the youth programme and keep greedy politicians out of the sport, so we look ahead instead of back. We need our own greats with their network and wast knowledge to plan a new vision for Iranian sports in all fields! This guy hasn't seen the inside of a gym in his entire excuse of a life. Love all Iranians - But some of the bastard children have their days counted for them. Bringing our youth and pride to her knees for a end dollar and power-grip.
