Iranian goalkeeper plans his immediate future in beach soccer after retiring from the national team
Legendary goalkeeper Peyman Hosseini, undeniably one of the best goalkeepers in the history of the sport, brought his international career to an end, bowing out at the Tecnotree Intercontinental Beach Soccer Cup in Dubai earlier this month.
However, he made it very clear that this does not mean that he will leave beach soccer and the beach soccer family. On top of continuing to compete at club level in Iran, he is already thinking about how to continue to add value to the sport that he absolutely adores.
“I love beach soccer and I will keep working in beach soccer“, he assured. In the near future, his plans are to transmit his knowledge and experience to the coming generations. First, becoming the goalkeeper coach of the Iran National Team but his objective is also to work with children.
“I want to create an academy in my city, Largan, in Mazandaran, and start working with young players. I believe that beach soccer is better than any other sport or modality of football, and my intention is to bring as many people to beach soccer as possible, help them in getting to know the sport and become enchanted by it.”
Whatever his plans are, Peyman Hosseini will always be a true asset for beach soccer, and his charisma, knowledge and experience will continue to help the sport grow to new levels.
