Alireza Akabarpour (Persian: علیرضا اکبرپور‎‎, born in March 19, 1973 in Tabriz)[1] is a former Iranian footballer and a current coach.


Akbarpour played as a striker for the Iranian football team Esteghlal F.C. for years. Born in East Azarbaijan Province in 1972, he wore jersey number 16 for his team. He is famous for his speedy dribbling as well as scoring crucial goals for his team. Many believe that he was not lucky enough to reach his proper position during his career, since rarely was he called for the Iranian national football team due to the untimely injuries and falling out of favor with the national team coaches.
