Iranian footballer enjoys Spanish spotlight

Masoud Shojaei is the only Iranian player in Spain's Primera Division and is an icon to young footballers back home.

    Osasuna might be in a fight to avoid relegation from Spain’s Primera Division, but one of their players is still enjoying star status in his home country. 

    With more than forty international football caps to his name, Masoud Shojaei is an icon to many young Iranian footballers, and he takes this responsibility very seriously.
