Vahid Qelich, the former coach & goalkeeper of popular Iranian Football Club; Persepolis, was, in effect, ousted from football pitches after his golden era.
He experienced hard days and over time, football fans forgot the honors he brought for his homeland. He succeeded in regaining his glorious days of the past after years of silence, poverty, dejection and seclusion.
This time, he owes his fame to dynamic presence in Instagram, not diving in football net as the goaler. Currently, Instagram has turned to be most virtual companion to Qelich, at the age of 65.
Social media, mostly used as entertaining apps by majority of people, is serving as a device to reclaim his lost identity.
