Iranian Players caught with cocaine.

Of all the countries that have tried to hire Diego Maradona as their coach? I wonder if Iran ever has??

From soccerway this morning:

Iran international Amou Lashgarian Hassan has been arrested on suspicion of trying to smuggle 690 grams of cocaine into Italy.
But imagine that! Not before it went through the UK and Netherlands and then to Italy.

Sad, sad, some of the things from that part of the world as this blog takes a bit of a look into more worldly affairs. I think some countries like Egypt and their former ruler Mubarak were not that bad, in fact, I have a good Egyptian Moslem friend, he has no problems with Israelis or Christians. God protect us from the scourge of Extremists. This International player may well be hung if he ever returns to Iran from what I know. And if this Hassan is a talent, he certainly has hurt himself in that area as well. I'm sure smuggling cocaine is going to carry a prison sentence.
