Moscow, Nov 25, IRNA - Iranian striker Sardar Azmoun has been known by spectators as the best player in Russian association football club FC Rubin Kazan over the past two months.
Azmoun has achieved over 70% votes of fans.
Russian goalkeeper Ivan Konovalov with 14% votes and the Russian central midfielder Igor Konovalov with 10 % votes ranked second and third.
Earlier, Azmoun was listed by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) as one of the six Asian stars that have shined during previous qualifying campaigns.
'Azmoun's talent was first noticed after his displays for Iran's U-19 teams in various competitions with his fine form earning him a move to Russia’s Rubin Kazan at the age of just 18,” AFC earlier said.
'During the qualifiers for the 2014 AFC U-19 Championship, Azmoun was particularly impressive in the 6-1 win over Lebanon as he scored twice and registered an assist,” AFC added.
'Since then, Azmoun's rise has been meteoric, with the 22-year-old boasting 22 goals in 28 matches for the senior national team after making his debut in 2014.'
Other starts were from UAE, China, Japan, Qatar and Thailand.
