Farhad is the best

Forward of esteghlal

I think Farhad is the only one who can be a kind of idol for Euro-Asian youth and teenagers. He owns those of characteristics rare celebrities possess. It is not just because he has already punched the reds for 4 consecutive times. It is because of his mannerisms and personality besides his global titles.
