In recent days, legal controversy erupted over the strength of the victory position or not, in the case against Iranian Persepolis, and the possibility of it qualifying for the AFC Champions League final, instead of the Iranian team, if excluded.
And the jurists who supported the weakness of the victory position, relied on the fact that Persepolis’ contracts came during the grace period that FIFA granted to Persepolis, in order to pay the salaries of coaches and former players, who based on their complaint, the team was prevented from contracting.
After the end of the grace period, FIFA prevented the Iranian club from concluding any new contracts, starting from September 12, which is what Persepolis has already committed to, as no new player has registered after this date.
