Persepolis striker Mehdi Taremi will have to serve a four-month ban after FIFA found he had breached his contract with Turkey’s football club Caykur Rizespor.

He will miss the match against Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal in the AFC Champions League semifinals, Tasnim News Agency reported.

The Iranian national team’s striker joined Caykur Rizespor in June but returned to his former club Persepolis without permission from the Turkish club.

Persepolis has been banned from signing players for the next two transfer windows.

Caykur Rizespor will reportedly receive 789,500 euros ($943,510) in compensation from Persepolis and Taremi for breach of transfer rules.

Persepolis will face Al Hilal on Tuesday in Abu Dhabi.
