A famous goalkeeper of Iran’s most recent soccer team; explains his hard journey and how he became a millionaire.
AliReza grew up in a small town in Iran in a low-income family. He loved playing Soccer, and his father was against that. His father believed playing Soccer is a waste of time, and instead, he can do labor and help his family with the extra income.
His father always ripped his soccer balls if he ever saw Alireza playing. Alireza worked in a bakery and started saving money.
When he had enough money for a bus ticket and a little of pocket money, he went to Tehran the capital of Iran. He visited a soccer coach, and the coach gave Alireza a chance to show his play.
Alireza shined, and they let him play in the team with no pay. Alireza didn’t have money and a place to stay, so after practice and play slept in the street benches, secretly. Then he found a job in a pizza place, and the owner let him sleep in the store at night.
Alireza worked at a carwash, later on, and swept the metro floor for a while. He always sent money to his parents and never told them that he has been doing labor work.
One night the coach of his team saw Alireza washing dishes in the pizza place at 1:30 am. The coach cried for Alireza.
And finally, they recognized his incredible talent for being a soccer gaolkeeper. Alireza made the highest deal with the most critical team of Iran and also played in the World Cup and shined there.
