Sports minister congratulates Persepolis' advance to AFC Champions League

Tehran, Oct 3, IRNA – Sports and Youth Minister Masoud Soltanifar in a message late on Saturday congratulated Persepolis on advancing to the AFC Championship League final with a 5-4 win over Saudi Arabia's Al-Nasr in Doha.

"You, dear youth and heroes, made the Iranian people happy by defeating the great powers of Asian football in a national event," the message reads.

In times of cowardly and cruel sanctions against the great people of Iran, the valuable youth of Iran shone brightly in the important arena of the Asian Champions League and sweetened mouth of the Iranian people by reaching the final, he said.

This glorious result displayed the zeal and sacrifice of the valuable and great Iranian youth in football and the popular club of Persepolis in Asia, he added.
