(Iransportspress.com | Tehran Times)- Esteghlal Khuzestan head coach Abdollah Veisi is on the verge of signing a contract with Sepahan football club, according to the local media.
Veisi, who led Esteghlal Khuzestan to the 2015-16 Iran Professional League (IPL) title,, stated that he has received a couple of offers but he is close to Sepahan.
Sepahan who won the title last season had a poor performance this year and finished in 11th place.
“I had a meeting with Sepahan officials and we came to an agreement but we have to wait and see what happens. After winning the IPL title I would like to win the AFC Champions League title, if I join Sepahan I want to prepare a great team who could win the ACL in two years,” Veisi said.
Esteghlal Khuzestan narrowly escaped relegation last year.
Veisi built a team who won the league title for the first time in its history.
Esteghlal Khuzestan dubbed the Iranian Leicester City who won the English Premier League this season for the first time in history.
