Retired Stars

2016

We’ll all soon retire. Those who have had tough jobs ought to seek rest sooner. Some others will taste the astringency of retirement sooner due to decay of their physical power. Footballers are of the latter. Those who once could run tens of meters in a flash and trigger the spectators to jump in excitement in a stadium now must be labeled retired.

The photos of this collection picture the friendly match between the Iranian retired football stars and La Liga retired stars in Azadi stadium. Stars who have been reduced to some shadows on the football field but still may satisfy the financial benefits of themselves and their sponsors.
