Amin Motevaselzadeh (also spelled Motevasel Zadeh) (Persian: امین متوسل‌زاده‎, born May 14, 1982 in Kazerun, Iran) is an Iranian football striker who currently plays for Saba Qom in Iran's Premier Football League.

Club career[edit]

He joined Bargh Shiraz at age of 18 and played seven years before moving to Admira Wacker.

Motevaselzadeh signed for VfB Admira Wacker Mödling on August 1, 2006 on a 1-year deal that ran until May 30, 2007. Then he joined Pegah Gilan in Iran's Premier Football League. Motevaselzadeh scored in the last minute against his former club Bargh in the semifinals of The Hazfi Cup to take Pegah to the final for first time in which they finished second.

Fair Player of the Year[edit]

He is very well known for his amazing fair play against Steel Azin in 28 January 2010. The match was between Moghamvemat and Steel Azin in round 25 of Iran Pro League. Moghamvemat was coming to the game desperately needing three points as they had gathered just two points from their last six matches. Steel Azin keeper Hamid Neshatjoo put his body on the line when he rushed out of his area and took a blow to the head to deny the host a goal scoring opportunity. The ball then fell into the path of Motevaselzadeh but rather than strike the ball into the unguarded net, the number 27 compassionately and deliberately kicked the ball into touch. Moghamvemat lost the game 2–1 and eventually was relegated on goal difference at end of the season . He was awarded the fair play player of the year 2010 in Iran Pro League. One year later, in 28 January 2011, Motevasselzadeh won The Act of Fair Play Award, along with Darius Draudvila, a Lithuanian decathlete, and Chinese wrestler Gao Feng.[1]

On 14 June 2014, Motevaselzadeh signed a two-year contract with Saba Qom.
