The Ex-footballer “Ferydoon Zandi” celebrating his 9th anniversary in Germany
In September 2006, he signed a one-year contract with 2. Bundesliga club TuS Koblenz, which he left in January 2007 due to the limited number of appearance he made. Raised in Germany, Zandi did not initially have the permission to play for his ancestral Iran as he did not have citizenship. However, the Iranian Football Federation obtained permission for him to play for them, and Zandi began to compete on the Iranian national side in the second round of 2006 FIFA World Cup qualification against Bahrain. After the qualifications he did not compete again on the team until being invited again for the 2007 AFC Asian Cup.
