"I want Asian title with Persepolis"

TEHRAN, July 5 (MNA)--Newly-reappointed Persepolis coach revealed he has returned to the club to win the Asian Champions League (ACL) in the current season.

“When I started my job in Persepolis last season, I promised the fans that I would win Iran’s Professional League (IPL) title and we eventually did that. Now, we are going to win the ACL and I think it’s possible.” Afshin Ghotbi told media on early Saturday morning at the Imam Khomeini International Airport.

“I am so happy of coming back to my homeland. Lion-hearted Persepolis did a great job last season and has the potential to do it once again,” he insisted.

Ghotbi paid tribute to former Persepolis general manager and ruled out the speculations that he left the team due to some problems with him. He insisted,“Unfortunately, many people said I parted company with Persepolis because of Habib Kashani but he is my close friend who trusted me more than everybody. I consulted with him before signing the new contract with Persepolis and I am so glad to see him once again.”
