Sohrab Bakhtiarizadeh

Tasnim – Sohrab Bakhtiarizadeh was appointed as the new head coach of Iran’s Sanat Naft football club.

The Abadan-based club had been linked with German coach Winfried Schäfer and Iranian trainer Faraz Kamalvand but finally hired 50-year-old coach Bakhtiarizadeh.

Bakhtiarizadeh has most recently worked as head coach of Iranian first tier Khooshe Talaei.
