AFC Champions League 2021: AIFF lodges complaint with the AFC against Persepolis' social media posts

The All India Football Federation (AIFF) has formally lodged a complaint with the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) against Iranian club Persepolis for their social media behaviour.

Persepolis is competing in the group stage of the 2021 AFC Champions League which is currently being hosted in Goa. They are clubbed alongside FC Goa, Al Wahda and Al Rayyan in Group E.

Ahead of the club's journey to India for their group fixtures, the club's social media handles put up a distasteful post which received plenty of attention for the wrong reasons.
