Tehran, Iran, April 20, 2021 – Mr Behrouz Ataei, head coach of the Iranian men’s U21 volleyball team, has recruited coaching staff following a consensus decision made at the meeting with IRIVF President Dr Mohammad Reza Davarzani.
Ataei, 51, met the IRIVF President and Secretary General Milad Taghavi to discuss a key point on forming coaching staff of the Iranian men’s U21 team and the relevant matters. After the meeting, IRIVF has announced staff coaches and technical staff to take charge of the squad in preparation for their title defence of the World Championship to be held later this year.
They comprise Behrouz Ataei (head coach), Mostafa Karkhaneh (Technical Advisor), Alireza Toloukian, Hossein Kazemim Mehran Zare, Vahid Sadeghi (coaches), Hossein Khuryani and Amin Ali Akbari (Statisticians), Mehrdad Sa’adat Mehr (Therapist), Mahmoud Mohammadi (Masseur), and Akbar Mohammad (Team Manager).
In 2019, Behrouz Ataei steered the Iranian men’s U21 team to the historic World Championship title in Riffa, Bahrain after pulling off a hard-fought 3-2 win against Italy in the final showdown.
The Iranian national men’s U21 team will commence their intensive training on May 1, 2021 to get ready for the FIVB Volleyball Men’s U21 World Championship, which will be held in Italy and Bulgaria between September 22 and October 3, 2021.
Among the qualified 16 teams, Iran and Korea are the only two teams from Asia to strut their stuff in the top-tier championship.
