It is not Iran bashing. It is simply true. None of our players or coaches have ever reached where he has. In terms of class (shakhsiat) he is up there with just a few.
Second, I do not know Faghani or any other famous Iranian footballer personally, so I do not know their "shakhsiat" whether good or bad. I certainly refrain from judging people whom I do not know.
Regarding Iran-bashing, I am surprised anyone, most of all you, here would disagree that it has been going on for a very long time. Should I refresh everyone's memory?!!
