Farhad Majidi stepped down as his role on Thursday, saying he was not satisfied with his condition in the U-23 football team since some people interfered in his work.

Majidi had been named as the U-23 coach in June as a replacement for Zlatko Kranjcar.

Iran has been drawn in Group C of the 2020 AFC U23 Championship along with Uzbekistan, China and South Korea.

The competition will be held in Thailand from January 8 to 26 and the top three teams of the tournament will qualify for the 2020 Summer Olympics men's football tournament in Japan as the AFC representatives.
