Hamid Estili, Malavan – February 18th, 2016
Hamid Reza Estili and Malavan have parted ways after the 45 year old announced his decision to resign from his role. Malavan have been on a dreadful run of form as they are yet to win a game in 2016 and remain winless in 9 games. With the teams around them slowly gaining momentum and picking up points, the Swans are gradually slipping down the table and could see themselves in the relegation zone sooner rather than later.
Estili took charge of the team only a few weeks into the season after the club failed to reach a full agreement with Amir Ghalenoei, and financial problems that gripped Malavan for the past two seasons have made it difficult for any manager to come in and settle in. They may have to look at Firouz Karimi, the man who saved them from relegation last season after taking charge on a temporary basis, but one thing is for sure, there needs to be changes in the structure of this well supported team and remove the uncertainties in the hierarchy of the club if they want to improve the team on the pitch.
