New Iran national coach Mohammad Mayelikohan has followed the lead of England national coach Fabio Capello.
Mayelikohan replaced Ali Daei as coach after the former star player was sacked recently, and has bought in new ideas and practices in a bid to improve Team Melli.
The new coach admires the way Capello goes about his business and has decided to introduce some of his ideas into the Iranian squad.
"English players have been forbidden by Capello to use mobile phones while at training camp," Mayelikohan said.
"Their coach also controls the team's nourishment programmes. English players are not allowed to eat whatever they want. I approve this style in football."
