Club career[edit]

He was discovered whilst playing street football with neighbourhood club Aref. After being scouted he joined Alborz FC, the reserve team of Kayan FC, where he would be called up very quickly. Eventually he made his way to Paykan F.C.[4][9] and was one of the star players in the team in its short run in Iranian football. He moved to Persepolis FC[9] as many other Paykan players did after the club was dissolved in 1970. After the Iranian Revolution and during the Iran–Iraq War Parvin was instrumental in helping the Persepolis club survive. By the end of his playing career he was operating in a player/manager position. He retired from competitive football in 1988.

International career[edit]

He played for the Iran national football team and was part of the Iranian Asian Cup winning squads of 1972 and 1976.

Parvin participated in the 1972 Munich Olympics and played in all three of Iran's matches.[1][10] He also participated at the 1976 Montreal Olympics, again playing in all three of Iran's matches, and he scored in the group game against Poland.[1][11]

He retired from international football after Iran's exit from the 1978 World Cup in Argentina, accumulating 76 caps and 8 goals.[12]

Managerial career[edit]

In late 1989 Parvin became the Iranian national team manager. He had already gained experience managing Tehran powerhouse, Persepolis FC. At first his popularity grew even more as the team won the 1990 Asian Games football gold medal, but early elimination from the 1992 Asian Cup and failure to qualify for World Cup 1994 cost him his job. He was fired in 1993 and replaced by Stanko Poklepovic.

He later became the manager of Persepolis FC and helped the team to a number of league titles. He left the team briefly in the 2003–04 season but returned the year after as the technical director of the team. After a poor start for Persepolis in the 2005–06 season he again became the manager, only to leave at the end of the season due to the club's poor form.
