Mehdi Ghayedi and Ahmad Nourollahi doing hajj
At the start of the season the FFIRI banned him from playing along with two fellow Esteghlal teammates Majid Hosseini and Omid Noorafkan as Alireza Mansourian prevented them to join Iran under-23 camp. The deprivation from the FFIRI was finally cancelled on 29 July 2017 after missing the first week of the season and the players eligible to play for the second week of the 2017–18 campaign. He finally made his debut for Esteghlal on 4 August 2017, in a 0–0 draw against Esteghlal Khuzestan entering the match as a substitute for Omid Noorafkan. At the end of the match, even though he played for a few minutes, he was praised for his skills and effort. After making his debut he became the youngest player to play for the club in the league, a record which was held by Omid Noorafkan previously.
