New head coach of Iran’s men’s national volleyball team Mauricio Motta Paes arrived in Tehran on Wednesday.

According to The Iran Project,Paes, the newly appointed head coach of Iran's national volleyball team, was greeted by officials from the Iranian Volleyball Federation upon his arrival at the Imam Khomeini International Airport.

He will lead the team until the end of the 2024 Olympic Games, with the option to extend his tenure for two more years.

Paes replaces Behrouz Ataei, who was dismissed in October due to poor results in the 2023 Volleyball Nations League.

Iran's chances of reaching the 2024 Paris Olympics are slim due to poor results in the 2023 FIVB Volleyball Nations League and the Olympic qualifiers.

The 2024 Nations League, which is the last stage for advancing to the Paris Olympics, will begin on May 21 in Brazil and Turkey. The importance of this competition has been maximized due to its sensitivity and significance.
