Amin Nazari (Persian: امین نظری‎; born 26 April 1993 in Malmö)[1] is a Swedish-Iranian footballer currently playing for Malmö FF as a centre midfielder. His brother Omid plays for Ängelholms FF.[2]

Career[edit]

Club career[edit]

Malmö FF[edit]

Nazari began playing football at Malmö FF at the age of five.[3] He made his way up to the first team and made his Allsvenskan debut in a match against Mjällby AIF on 20 April 2011.[4] Nazari signed a two-and-a-half year first team contract on 4 May 2011, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2013 season.[5] Nazari saw much more limited play during the 2012 season due to high competition in the central midfield. He only played one match during the season, a goalless home draw against BK Häcken. He made his Champions League debut on 16 July 2014 against FK Ventspils.[6]

Assyriska[edit]

On 29 March 2013 it was announced that Nazari was to be on loan at Superettan club Assyriska FF until the end of the 2013 season. At the same time he extended his contract with Malmö FF until the end of the 2015 season.[7] Nazari played 23 matches and scored four goals for Assyriska during his loan spell at the club.

International career[edit]

Nazari was born in Sweden, his parents are from Iran and the Philippines.[1] He is therefore eligible to play for Sweden, Iran or the Philippines. Nazari has stated that playing for Sweden would be the most logical choice should the opportunity arise in the future.[3] His older brother Omid Nazari plays for the Iranian national team.[8]

In 2009, he played for Sweden's under-17 team during the 2010 UEFA European Under-17 Championship qualifying round, playing in all three matches and scoring one goal.[9]
