Mehdi Taj Returns - Will he bring back Carlos Queiroz? | UCL & UEL Draws | Female Fans in PGPL

GOL BEZAN RETURNS with a lot to cover! Host Sina Sadrzadeh with panelists Sina Saemian, Daniel Kayal & Arya Allahverdi discuss Mehdi Taj returning as president of the Iran Football Federation having been elected ahead of Mirshad Majedi & Azizollah Mohammadi. Speculation has risen with the rumours of a potential return for Carlos Queiroz as head coach of the Iran national team as Taj has said that it is something he would consider. We speak about the next friendlies for Team Melli who face Uruguay & Senegal in Austria on September 23rd & 27th, respectively.

Regarding legionnaires, Sardar Azmoun (Bayer Leverkusen) & Mehdi Taremi (Porto) are grouped together in the UEFA Champions League with Atlético Madrid & Club Brugge. Sadegh Moharrami (Dinamo Zagreb) is grouped with AC Milan, Chelsea & Red Bull Salzburg. Alireza Jahanbakhsh (Feyenoord), Karim Ansarifard (Omonia) & Dennis Eckert (Union Saint-Gilloise) play in the UEFA Europa League group stages. We explain the unfortunate injury Allahyar Sayyadmanesh sustained and the futures of players such as Saman Ghoddos, Saeid Ezatolahi & Ali Gholizadeh.

Lastly, female supporters are gradually being allowed in stadiums for Persian Gulf Pro League matches, around 1000 fans were present for Esteghlal vs Mes Kerman at Azadi Stadium and a further 4000 for Persepolis vs Sanat Naft.
