Andranik Teymourian, the current midfielder of Al-Kharitiyath, ruled out all rumors linking him to a possible move to his country, Iran. A few days ago several Qatari newspapers published a story about Andranik Teymourian and suggested that he will leave his current club.

But Ando says he is ready to join the team’s camp in Dubai. “I’m very comfortable in Al-Kharitiyath and I have good conditions in this club. So I must deny all the reported rumors about my future.” Teymourian used to play for Esteghlal and Tractor Sazi in Iran after returning from England. Apparently he won’t come back to Iran in near future. “I’m satisfied with my conditions in Al-Kharitiyath and playing in Qatar’s Stars League. I will stay in Qatar until my contract expires at the ending of this season. I have not planned for returning to Iran.”

Andranik Teymourian is also one of the most prominent players of Iran’s national football team. He has scored 8 goals during his 69 appearances in national level.

Andranik was born in Tehran, Iran to ethnic Armenian parents. Teymourian started with Oghab F.C. in Iran’s Azadegan League, and continued his professional career playing for F.C. Aboomoslem in the Iranian Premier League. His great performance in World Cup 2006 resulted in his move to Bolton Wanderers. He then joined Fulham in 2009 and made his debut against Arsenal.
