Futsal player Ali-Asghar Hassanzadeh will be named AFC Futsal Player of the Year for a third time following his impressive performance at this year’s Asian competitions.

While the official winners of AFC awards are expected to be announced on Wednesday, news leaks say Hassanzadeh has been selected for the honor, ISNA reported.

He will attend the awards ceremony in Bangkok, Thailand, November 29.

Hassanzadeh, who first won the AFC Futsal Player of the Year accolade in 2014 and then in 2016, has been instrumental in Iran’s successes in recent years.

Currently playing for Giti Pasand in the Iranian Futsal Super League, Hassanzadeh has also won the AFC Futsal Club Championship on two occasions – in 2010 with Foolad Mahan and five years later when he represented Tasisat Daryaei.
