Veteran Footballer Behzadi Dies at 73

Former Iranian footballer Homayoun Behzadi died of cardiac arrest, at his home in Tehran on Friday.
Behzadi who played mostly for famous Tehran clubs Shahin and Persepolis as a striker, passed away after a long period of suffering from lung and heart disease. He was 73,    Varzesh3.com reported.
Less than a week after the untimely death of former Esteghlal player Reza Ahahdi, who died of liver failure at 53 years on January 18, comes the unfortunate loss of Behzadi who was nicknamed ‘Golden Head’ for the numerous goals he scored with his high jumps and fantastic headers for the local clubs as well as Iran’s national team (Team Melli).
Born in Khorramabad, Lorestan Province in west Iran, Behzadi was among the best players  in Iran soccer history. He won many titles in the club and at national levels including the Tehran Championship in 1970 with Peykan FC, Iranian league in 1972 and 1974 with Persepolis and the AFC Asian Cup with Team Melli in 1968 and 1972.
After retiring, he became head coach for Persepolis for a short time in 1975 and later managed Tehran Shahbaz B team for more than 10 years.
