Rezaei: Serie B Is Not For Me!

Ex-Messina and Livorno defender Rehman Rezaei, has told media back in his native Iran that he would prefer to play in his homeland than be forced to ply his trade in Serie B.

Rezaei was released by Livorno at the end of last season and has still to find a new club.

Nicknamed ‘The Minister Of Defence’ by Italian fans, the 33 year-old would prefer to stay in Europe but not at any price.

“I have received some offers from Serie B teams but rejected all of them. I would prefer to play in Iran’s Professional League than Europe’s second class leagues. I will never join these kinds of teams." Rezaei told Tehran’s Mehr News Agency.

“These speculations made me laugh. I am fully on course and waiting to select the best option. Of course I am worried about my future because the competitions are already underway. I would like to join an Iranian team.”
