Stephen Appiah trains with Iranian side Perspolis
Midfielder Stephen Appiah trained with his new side FC Perspolis on Friday ahead of their Iranian Pro League match in a fortnight.
The ex-Juventus star arrived in Tehran yesterday (Thursday) to complete his move on a free transfer.
Appiah, 31, will be a key addition to Manuel Jose’s side who are struggling this season.
He was signed as a direct replacement for South Korean Kwon Jun, who has been sidelined with a foot injury.
FC Perspolis are 11th on the league table and play Zob Ahan on 19 November.
Appiah has rich experience playing club football abroad having featured for Udinese, Parma, Fenerbahce, Cesena and Bologna.
He spent four months of the back end of last season at Serbian giants FK Vojvodina.
Appiah captained Ghana at the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals in Germany and helped the Black Stars reached the round of 16.
But he quit international football four years later after playing a bi-part role at the World Cup finals in South Africa.
