Last year, Ali and Mahdi Ghaedi were invited by TIFA to come to The Netherlands for a two weeks TIFA Development Program. They were selected based on their skills and our scouting reports from Iran.
The boys went through a fully packed training schedule including top training sessions, masterclass, and tests. After careful consideration and evaluation of our top coaches, we can conclude that both players do not have the skills to compete at the European level. Both players lack skill in both technical and tactical aspects, as well as personality. At TIFA we did our best to provide the best tools for the players. Unfortunately, Ali and Mahdi Ghaedi did not have what it takes to stand out in Europe.
At TIFA we look for the very best talents in the world to build the next-gen football players.
