Thanks for all your efforts which were crucial in where team melli is today.
It is unfortunate you didn't get some playing time but that takes nothing away from your qualities and you are a top bloke.

He is only 30. He is acting emotional after his wife stupid post on insta. Hope he was waiting longer to make such a decision. I mean AC is in 6 month. He was crucial in our 2014 Q. Best of luck to him. With Taremi, Karim, Azmoun and addition of such as Kaveh, it became harder for him to get the playing time though

That was a really touching message, didn't expect him to refer to CQ as "khoda" though; shows how big he is that he could put his emotions aside and just want what was best for the team in the opinion of his manager

. پوشيدن پيرهن تيم ملى واسه من بزرگ ترين آرزو در دنياى فوتبال بود و هنوز هم بعضى موقع ها باورم نميشه كه اين پيرهن رو خدا برام گذاشت تا من تنم كنم.

I dont think he is referring CQ as khoda guys ! i actually think he is referring god, the dude up in the sky!
You're saying he'd rather refer to an imaginary concept by name than the guy that actually brought him to the team? :)

In all seriousness though, he was a valuable member, hope he changes his mind and quits after asian Cup hopefully as a champion, I wish we had seen him at the world cup again but I'm also happy with the performances and there isn't anyone I wish was subbed out

I think he knows there is a good chance that CQ invites Kaveh for AC instead of him. I believe he made the right decision. His wife post was stupid. Thank you agha Reza specially for that unforgettable goal 5 years ago against Korea. I will not forget that moment ever.

There is Kaveh, Alipour who is 22 and had hell of season with PP, who can press, score from header and good on the ground. Lots of depth in forward. Soon Alahyar, Delfi..

Great player, great memories. Thank you for all you did. Good move on his behalf. I wish more players in Iran learn to leave while on top and create room for the new players who have leaned from them to step in.

Another victim of physical football. CQ almost had no choice. He sure is a better footballer than Azmoun, but that's not what's being played in this World Cup.

If the trend continues, soon football will become exclusive to tall bulky players.
I agree he was victim of the way we played and team tactics , I don't agree he is better than Azmoon .

Definitely better than Taremi ,specially in finding the target and finishing , but Taremi played because of his age factor and size and ability to run back and defend Now if you are not happy with the end results of our three world cup games that is your problem .

But we punched well above our weight with the tactics we had relative to what players and their capabilities against three powerful teams and finished with 4 points ,best ever world cup result and almost made it out of this group as first team .

Shame none of those great chances Taremi missed fall for Azmoon .

Exactly! If he retires thanks for everything, but there is a reason he didn't get minutes. It's the best for everyone and good luck for the future. But there's the chance to win the Asian Cup.

How is he better than Azmoun? On what basis would he have performed in any way better than Azmoun?
