The Minister of Sports and Youth said: “We will definitely look at Esteghlal and Persepolis with one eye because there are two popular teams in the country that have a lot of fans, but we must definitely pay enough attention to other disciplines as well.”
According to the government’s information base, quoting the Ministry of Sports and Youth, Dr. Seyed Hamid Sajjadi, on the sidelines of the second conference of the Martyrs of Sports Memorial, said about the situation of Persepolis Club and the election of the club’s CEO: We had a manager and it was done and we are aware of what is happening in the club. We are constantly talking to the officials of the two clubs about the management issues of Persepolis and Esteghlal.
Dr. Sajjadi, stating that the country’s sports do not end only in two clubs, Esteghlal and Persepolis, noted: As the Minister of Sports and Youth, I have a duty to pay attention to all sports and I am not the only Minister of Persepolis and Esteghlal. We definitely look at the two teams with one eye because there are two popular teams in the country that have a lot of fans, but we definitely have to pay enough attention to other disciplines as well.
He stated: The issues of the board of directors of Persepolis club have no role in the technical results of this team. Mr. Sadri has full authority to work in Persepolis. We asked the board to give their ideas and opinions to strengthen the team, but we are definitely thinking of strengthening the board. We respect the board of directors of the two clubs and we will soon make a decision for the Persepolis club with the consent of the board of directors.
The Minister of Sports and Youth continued: “No one should relate the technical issues of the team to the management issues of the team.” At the Ministry of Sports, we will help Persepolis and Esteghlal Club as much as we can. Fans of the two clubs must trust the Ministry of Sports and Youth.
He also mentioned the issue of environmental propaganda for Esteghlal and Persepolis clubs: “During the meeting that was held between the officials of the two clubs and the development company, they reached an agreement and will no longer have any problems.” A new chapter of the type of work is on its way and it will be done with the new form of this advertisement.
He said: “After the corona faded in the country, which caused the sports lights to dim, thank God, the sports wheel started moving again, and recently we have witnessed the good success of the athletes.” For example, the national football team is on the verge of reaching the World Cup and can create excitement in the community again.
Dr. Sajjadi added: “Fortunately, we witnessed the presence of spectators in the stadium for the Esteghlal game, and this permit was also issued for five thousand people in the Persepolis game.” We urge fans to follow the protocols so that it does not become a problem and the efforts of the medical staff are not ignored.
