Profile: Karim ANSARIFARD, #0




Persian: کریم انصاری‌فرد
Karim Ansarifard has represented the national team at every age level.

The player is a product of the Saipa Club youth system. In the 2007 season, the club faced a situation after their star striker Mohsen Khalili left. The coach, Ali Daei gave Karim Ansarifard the opportunity and promoted him to the first team from the reserves and the young starlet answered the coach with some eye-catching performances.
"World Soccer" Magazine selected Ansarifard as one of the best young talents in the world alongside Javier Hernández and Jack Wilshere.

In January 2012, FIFA.com selected him as one of the players to watch 2012. Goal.com also chose him as one of the hottest 100 young football players in the world. Also in 2012, FIFA ranked him as the 48th best goalscorer in the world and second-best in Asia.

Karim Ansarifard made his debut against Iceland in November 2009 under Afshin Ghotbi and scored his first international goal and the only goal of the match. He was given the legendary number 10 shirt previously worn by Ali Daei and scored on 15 January 2011 his 3rd international goal against North Korea, so Ansarifard became the youngest-ever goalscorer in the AFC Asian Cup for Team Melli.

Ansarifard has changed several clubs after he left Saipa to Persepolis in season 2012/13. He joined, Tractorsazi, Osasuna, Persepolis, Panionios, Olympiakos, Nottingham Forest, Al Saliya, and in 2020 Season AEK Athens. He changed 8 clubs in as many years never settling in anyone for a steady period.

However, Ansarifard Marco Polo style did not prevent him from scoring at the clubs and different leagues. His total league goal at the end of 2020/21 season was 128 goals in 280 games.
