Mehrab Shahrokhi (محراب شاهرخی in Persian) (February 2, 1944 - February 1, 1993) was an Iranian footballer born in Ahvaz, Iran. He was an African Iranian. He was nicknamed The Black Bomber (Persian: بمب افکن سیاه) because of his style of play and black skin.

Club career

Shahrokhi began his football career in his birthplace, Ahvaz, playing for Shenaye Ahvaz Club. In 1963 he moved to Tehran and began playing for Shahin FC. Shahrokhi left for Daraei FC in 1966, after problems with Shahin's management. His spell at Darei was short-lived, moving first to Paykan FC and then to Persepolis FC. He continued playing with Persepolis until 1974 and retired from football in 1975

International career

While still in Ahvaz, in 1963 Shahrokhi was invited to join the Iranian national football team. He was to participate in the football tournament of the 1964 Summer Olympics, but he missed out after boycotting the team along with a number of other Shahin players. They refused to accompany the national team because the national team director—a fan of Shahin's rival, Daraei FC—had decided to drop several Shahin players from the squad in favor of Daraei players. A number of players including Shahrokhi were banned from any involvement in football for one year.

Retirement

In 1976 came Shahrokhi's debut in Iranian cinema, acting in a movie called Alafhaye Harz. Acting was not his passion though, and he became the manager of several teams after retirement, but was not able to achieve anything impressive, as the Iranian Revolution and Iran–Iraq War caused football's presence to diminish in 1980s Iran.

Death

Mehrab Shahrokhi died on February 1, 1993, dying an impoverished man having spent most of his wealth keeping afloat his beloved Persepolis during the club's darkest days. He will always be remembered as a savior of Persepolis.
