Jamaican Coach Excited About Esteghlal Experience

Jamaican coach Miguel Coley says he is excited about his experience in Iran after beginning his tenure as assistant coach in Esteghlal, where he will again team up with former Jamaica national football team head coach Winfried Schaefer.
According to Jamaica-gleaner.com, Coley is expecting the language barrier to pose the biggest challenge but is embracing the test, which he expects will serve to develop his abilities and inspire other young Jamaican coaches.
“I am very excited about the move. Knowing I will be coaching in a different country that is at the World Cup and that I will be coaching in the Asian Champions League,” said Coley, shortly after his arrival in Tehran on January 10.
“As a coach, (this move) broadens my horizon and scope on the game to fully and highly concentrate on football on a high level. I look forward to working with coach Schaefer as he is the one that brought global attention to me as a coach. He gives room to learn and express one’s opinion, and he is very honest,” added Coley.
Esteghlal played to a 1-1 draw in the Persian Gulf Pro League against Saipa on Friday and currently is fifth in the league standings.
Esteghlal is two-time AFC Champions League winner and has won the Iranian League eight times.
