1065 Ryan Tafazolli

Biography

Giant centre back Tafazolli signed for City in July 2019 to add power to Grant McCann’s new look Togers defence.

Tafazolli was born in the South London suburbs and began his career in the Southampton youth team system, captaining the Saints’ under-18s side for a season. He left Southampton at the age of 20 and after a season drifting around non-league sides, he joined Conference side Mansfield Town in 2012. He missed most of his first season due to injury as the Stags were promoted back to League Two, and in the next three seasons he became a first team regular. In June 2016 Tafazolli switched to Peterborough on a three year deal, where he continued to build his reputation as a dominant defensive force and first team regular. It was during his time at London Road that Tafazolli was managed by Grant McCann, the gaffer that signed him for Hull City.

Tafazolli has dual international eligibility for Iran and England.
