Tehran Times - Iran national beach soccer head coach Marco Octavio says he is very satisfied with his men’s performance in the Persian Beach Soccer Cup.
Iran claimed the title in Bushehr in late January after three wins over Azerbaijan, Ukraine and Spain.
One week ahead of the competition, the Brazilian coach was forced to leave Iran for solving family problems in his country. Octavio’s assistant Abbas Hashempour led the team in the competition.
“I am very happy with our performance in Persian Cup. We improve our tactic system and won the title with new players. I support Hashampour in Persian Cup after he headed the team in all the matches,” Marco Octavio told Tehran Times.
“I am in Brazil at the moment to solve some family problems. I will return to Tehran as soon as possible to start our preparation for the next Beach Soccer World Cup,” the Brazilian concluded.
