TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Former Brighton forward Alireza Jahanbakhsh has no regrets about leaving the English club for Feyenoord.
The Iranian international played 61 times for the Seagulls between 2018 and 2021, after signing from AZ Alkmaar. But it never quite worked out for the 28-year-old as he struggled to tie down a regular starting spot at Albion.
“I did not have to think for a moment when Arne Slot (Feyenoord coach) called. I already knew Arne, of course. And I had already played against Feyenoord with AZ.
“De Kuip is, for me, the most beautiful stadium in the Netherlands,” he told Hand in Hand Magazine.
"It was a good step for me, and I feel good here. The city is really nice. Although I don’t go out that much – I’m at home a lot – I can really enjoy the city. Rotterdam is really beautiful,” Jahanbakhsh added.
