Jahanbakhsh reveals reason leaving Brighton for Feyenoord

Iranian forward Alireza Jahanbakhsh has revealed his reasons for leaving Brighton and Hove Albion for Feyenoord.

The 27-year-old arrived at the Albion with huge expectations a few years ago, but failed to show his quality in the Premier League.

He has now signed for Dutch outfit Feyenoord, in part due to the influence of their manager Arne Slot.

Jahanbakhsh has played in Holland before, as he moved to Brighton from AZ Alkmaar, where Slot was assistant manager at the time.

After signing for Feyenoord, Alireza told the club's official website: "During my time at AZ as assistant coach, Arne Slot was one of the people who helped me to become a better player.

"So when he called and asked if I wanted to come to Feyenoord, I told him I was going to do everything I could to make this transfer. I had no doubts."
