Esteghlal FC youth player, Mobin Jafari, traveled to the Netherlands in January 2020 for a two weeks football testing program of TIFA.
Esteghlal Tehran Football Club, commonly known as Esteghlal, is an Iranian football club based in capital Tehran. Esteghlal is one of the biggest teams in Iran and the third most impressive team in Asia. It is one of the most supported and successful clubs in Iranian football, having won two AFC Champions League trophies, eight national titles and a record of seven national cups. Esteghlal is also leading the all-time table of the Persian Gulf Pro League. Furthermore, Esteghlal is known for its strong youth academy in Tehran and Iran in general.
The program of Mobin started with a technical and tactical test at Varkenoord, Feyenoord Academy in Rotterdam, to understand the current level of Mobin. Next, TIFA continued with a total performance test in Amsterdam at PhysioLab to evaluate the physical, physiological, and movement skills of Mobin. These two tests combined, provided us with sufficient information to create an excellent custom-made two weeks program for Mobin in order to develop. The program is bound with activities to give Mobin an essential understanding of Dutch football and its philosophy which is amongst the best in the world.
It was a pleasure to host Mobin during our TIFA Testing Program in The Netherlands. Mobin showed significant progress as days past. Apart from that, his excitement to learn will most definitely help this young player to grow daily. We hope to see him back soon for more training and development.
