Mahdavikia appointed as Hamburg U-14 coach

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Former Iranian national football team’s midfielder Mehdi Mahdavikia has been appointed as Hamburg U-14 coach.

Mahdavikia, who played for HSV from 1999 to 2007, was selected as the Hamburger SV Team of the Century in October 2012.

“I accepted Hamburg’s offer since I wanted to continue my coaching courses in Europe. I will begin my work from next two weeks,” Mahdavikia said.

Mahdavikia, founder of KIA Football Academy, inspired the U-11 team to second place in Cordial Cup in late May.
