Mohammadmehdi Nabi, the secretary-general of Iran Football Federation, praised massive turnout by Iranian football coaches to take part in legendary French manager Arsene Wenger’s coaching class.
A knowledge enhancement webinar was held at the Iranian federation on Wednesday, where some 5,000 Iranian coaches took lessons from the former Arsenal head coach, who serves as FIFA chief of global football development.
“It’s a great honor to have Mr. Wenger – a high-status manager in the world – among us,” Nabi said, adding, “Iranian federation has been one of leading federations in training football coaches as some 35,000 coaches have been introduced in recent years.”
Persian Gulf Pro League managers Amir Qalenoei, Javad Nekounam, and Yahya Golmohammdi, as well as Iran’s national team head coach Dragan Skocic were among attendees in the seminar.
