Mansour Amirasefi was one of the top Iranian football players of his day and had stints with Kian F.C., F.C. Ararat Tehran, and Persepolis F.C. He was also a member of the Iranian national team (known as Team Melli after its original Persian name) from 1959 through 1964 and captained the squad at the 1964 Summer Olympics that placed joint thirteenth (and last) alongside South Korea with one draw and two losses. After retiring as a player he had a brief coaching tenure with Persepolis in 1977, which ended after he failed to put legendary midfielder Ali Parvin on the field during a match. Such was Parvin’s status as a player during that era that Amirasefi was forced to resign after Parvin protested the decision. Amirasefi later became the manager of Ararat.
