(IranSportsPress.com-TehranTimes)- Head coach of Iran’s Persepolis football team has been shortlisted to take charge of Algeria football team, regionalni.com reported.
Algeria is without a coach since Georges Leekens resigned following the team’s early exit from the Africa Cup of Nations in late January.
Ivankovic has said it’s an honor for him to link with the job.
The 63-year-old coach was appointed as Persepolis coach in April 2015 and he is on the verge of winning Iran Professional League (IPL) title in the current season after becoming runner-up in the last season only due to their inferior goal difference.
Iran national football team coach Carlos Queiroz had already linked with a move to Algeria but the Portuguese coach will stay at Team Melli to steer the team to the 2018 World Cup.
