Team Melli fans, this is a gem of clip from Ali Daei!
The interview takes place right after Team Melliâ€™s 1:0 defeat of UAE. The UAE reporter is trying to squeeze Daei into a reaction, but he does not bite. At some point even the translator who is also from UAE gets involved, but Daei does not budge.
What impressed me most about Daei here was the fact that he seems to understand Arabic real well. At some point after he realizes that the interpreter is misinterpreting him, he stops listening to him and answers the reporterâ€™s questions directly.
Look for the part when he says, â€œWe made a gift of a point to you in Iran!â€. The interpreter can not take it anymore and asks, â€œWhy didnâ€™t the referee call the penalty for us?â€
