We sat down with Lorival Santos, the Brazilian manager who made history by becoming the first coach from outside of Asia to win the Iraqi Premier League as he led the Harps to their landmark fifth Premier League title and tenth overall league title in the 2013-14 season.

Flashback Photo of the Month

This month in 2019, Mohanad Ali scored an unbelievable goal as Al Shorta overcame Al Naft 2-0 on the way to their sixth Iraqi Premier League title. He sprinted half the length of the field, evading several Al Naft players with ease as shown in the photo below before a comfortable left-footed finish to double the Harps' lead in the game. The goal was crowned Soccer Iraq's Goal of the Season and is one of the highlights of Mimi's memorable five-year spell at the club.
