Hajsafi signs with Panionios

Team Melli midfielder Ehsan Hajsafi signed with Greek Super League side Panionios on 24 June. Hajsafi will be playing on the same team with fellow Iranian footballer Masoud Shojaei.

I like this move for Hajsafi. Last year there was a rumor of him playing in Greece but instead he ended up returning to Sepahan.

This will be Ehsan’s second stint in Europe after a one-year spell he had in Bundesliga 2 with FSV Frankfurt for the 2015-16 season.

The World Cup is one year away and I really like the idea of seeing more Iranian footballers plying their trade in European leagues.

Best of luck next season to Ehsan Hajsafi, Masoud Shojaei, and Karim Ansarifard of Olympiacos.
