TEHRAN: Iran has sealed a jewellery shop and restaurant belonging to football legend Ali Daei
, after he backed protesters’ calls for strikes this week, local media reported on Monday. Daei
‘s 109 goals at international level were long unsurpassed until Cristiano Ronaldo
overtook him. ISNA news agency, citing the judiciary’s media centre, reported that the ex-player’s shop and restaurant in Tehran had been ordered shut.
“Following the cooperation with anti-revolutionary groups in cyberspace to disrupt peace and business of the market, a judicial order was issued to seal Noor Jewellery Gallery,” ISNA reported. It said a restaurant linked to Daei had also been ordered shut but gave no details. Last week Daei said he had been targeted by threats after backing the protests.
