Is the Minister of Sports Persepolis?

Massoud Soltanifar, the Minister of Sports and Youth, said about the rumors about his independence or Persepolis and his support for a certain team: “I do not consider these cases original.” Being a fan of one color is neither a requirement of my job nor my position.

Regarding Stramaccioni’s separation and the ministry’s non-interference, he said: “In this case, the minister should not have done anything, it was the duty of the board of directors and the managing director to keep them (Branco, Stramaccioni), not me.” The minister is not supposed to be in contact with the coach, and it is illogical for him to intervene.
