Former Persepolis GM Abbas Ansarifard dies

TEHRAN - Former Persepolis general manager, Abbas Ansarifard, passed away at the age of 65 following his battle with Covid-19 on Tuesday.

Ansarifard was chairman of the Iranian club, Persepolis, in three different spells.

Ansarifard’s greatest success as general manager came during his three-year stint in Persepolis, between 1990-1993, when the Reds won the Asian Cup Winners' Cup in the 1990/91 season.

He also managed the club in 2001 and again in 2009 for a short period of time.

He was the brother of Mohammadhassan Ansarifard, a former player of Persepolis and Iran national football team, and a former chairman of the Persepolis club.

Tehran Times extends deepest sympathy to the Ansarifard family, loved ones, and friends over his demise.



Mount Damavand is the highest peak in Iran and the highest volcano in Asia.
