Ali Karimi kicked out

Reports: Ali Karimi Ejected From Iran Camp


2004 Asian Player of the Year Ali Karimi has been kicked out of Iran’s training camp, after criticising the Iranian Football Federation (IFF) in a recent interview.
Print This Story Send To A Friend Contact Us galleria zoom Ali Karimi who had travelled to Ardebil for a training camp with Iran national football team ahead of June's series of 2010 World Cup qualifiers, left the camp on Tuesday morning and returned to Tehran after he was suspended by the IFF pending further investigations to comments made by him in a recent interview.

The former Bayern Munich star criticised the federation saying:“These things (mismanagement, and lack of a clear plan) have become something normal in our football. In the 10 years that I have been part of the national team, things have never been so bad. I hope these problems are solved soon, but the officials need to know that they can not solve these problems by just talking.”

Karimi is one of the biggest names in Iranian football and the decision to suspend him is controversial.

Iran take on UAE in the next 2010 World Cup qualifier on June 2 in Tehran.

Pretty crazy, I don't know whether this a loss anymore considering he is not what he used to be; but good for Karimi for having some balls against this awful Iran regime.

Thanks to Ahmadinejad, Karimi is back in the team. This is probably the single most useful thing he has ever done as president and ever will.

Karimi is back? Where did you read that? And cause of Ahmadinejad?

Well, we could use him now. We need all our stars.. Hashemian, Mehdi, Teymourian, Karimi. We need these guys all back. Everyone needs to put their differences aside and help us through this.

The only player I saw on another level today was Nekounam and to an extent Zandi. We need our stars back..

Well he is back, but mysteriously injured now. Probably some fake shit so Daei doesn't have to bring him back.

I was just thinking of Karimi the other day. What is he up to these days? Still in Qatar?

Yeah I think he had a bit of potential to be a squad player. I remember when he got injured in that important Hamburg match when he just came on. After that it is was all downhill. He should have stayed in the Bundesliga and tried with another club.

Doesn't matter. IR is shooting themselves in the foot with everything they have done so far. They will be back, hopefully under a new regime. From a footballing aspect 3 of them probably need to retire, but that isn't up to IR.

No, I was going this August. But from what I heard they take your passports when you arrive in the airport. Are you planning to go this year?

Rafo, you still in Iran? I think he said he moved to the States last year. Hopefully he is okay.
