Abdullah Saeedaei started playing football at the age of twelve in the back alleys of Tehran and together with some friends, they formed the Koohestan team, in Tehran, Saeedaei became the captain of the team.
At the time, several other teams were also formed in Tehran, including a team called "Tehran". The Tehran team did not continue and seized playing for a long time, and because of this, Abdullah Saeedaei and his teammates decided to change the name of their team from Kooheestan to Tehran.
