Top 10 Best Iranian Football Players

The Top Ten
1 Farhad Majidi Farhad Majidi is a retired Iranian professional footballer who mostly played as an attacking midfielder. He was also a member of Iran national football team. In 2010, he was nominated for the Asian Footballer of the Year award which finished second in voting.

I think Farhad is the only one who can be a kind of idol for Euro-Asian youth and teenagers. He possesses characteristics that are rare among celebrities. It is not just because he has punched the reds four consecutive times. It is because of his mannerisms and personality, besides his global titles.

Farhad Majidi is number 1. He is certainly the most technical player in the Middle East. Although he is near 40, he is still a nightmare for defenders. His understanding of football, his intelligence, and creativity allow him to play at a top standard and be always helpful for his club, Esteqlal FC.

2 Ali Karimi Ali Karimi nicknamed "Maradona of Asia", is an Iranian coach and retired footballer. He has played for Fath Tehran, Persepolis, Al-Ahli Dubai, Bayern Munich, Qatar SC, Steel Azin, Schalke 04, Tractor Sazi, and the Iran national team for which he scored 38 goals in 127 appearances.

Ali is always number 1 because he's technically great and has a great character. Viva Ali Karimi.

I don't talk for or against Reds and Blues. You know what, Ali Karimi is a national legend. Farhad Majidi is not even a competitor, people. Please be rational, not voting for colors.

The best Iranian player after the revolution is Ali Karimi, both as a human being and a soccer player. Also, Mahdavikia was a great player.

The rest are garbage, especially Ali Daei - so low class.

3 Ali Daei

Ali Daei is a determined player and coach. I admire his personality, life strategy, and most importantly, his soccer style in general. I have been a soccer fan for 47 years. He has scored the highest number of international goals in the world as well.

Ali Daei is the legend of all time. He is the best international goal scorer in the world, having great finishing skills, air superiority, and amazing insight. He played for world-class clubs such as Bayern Munich and was earmarked by club legend Franz Beckenbauer as a "world-class striker".

4 Ashkan Dejagah

When he is on his game, his ball skills compete with players on the International Level. He was amazing in the World Cup game against Argentina.

He is also the best football player for Iran.

5 Mehdi Mahdavikia
6 Khodadad Azizi
7 Reza Ghoochannejhad

Reza is literally the best player in Iran. I voted for him because he was the only person in Iran to score a goal in 2014.

8 Nasser Hejazi
9 Masoud Shojaei
10 Mehdi Rahmati
The Contenders
11 Jalal Hosseini
12 Javad Nekounam

One of the best players and captains of Iran, people really like him. A fantastic player with high self-esteem and management power.

You are a very good player, Nekounam!

He had scored against Real Madrid and Casillas.

13 Alireza Jahanbakhsh

By far the best Iranian football player at the moment!

14 Ahmad Reza Abedzadeh

Eagle of Asia! No keeper has shown skills as good as his!

15 Sardar Azmoun

He's far greater than any of these players. He has the skills of Messi and Ibrahimovic but also jumps like a basketball player. He will be one of the best players in the future, I guarantee it.

He is the most expensive Iranian soccer player who plays in Russia.

16 Mojtaba Jabbari

I think you'll find that Mojtaba clearly is the best Iranian football player!

17 Kaveh Rezaei
18 Karim Bagheri

He is the best center midfielder in Asia's history. He scores many goals and has scored the most goals in the world as a midfielder player.

19 Karim Ansarifard
20 Mehdi Taremi

Taremi became the fifth Iranian to score in the Champions League (Ali Daei, Mehdi Mahdavikia, Ali Karimi, Sardar Azmoun) and the first to do so in the knockout stages.

He is the best. Better than any other player, old times and recent.

21 Khosro Heydari
22 Alireza Beiranvand
23 Arash Borhani

Arash Borhani is the best player after Farhad Majidi in Iran. The fans of Esteghlal love Arash Borhani.

24 Mohammad Reza Khalatbari
25 Ferydoon Zandi
