He comes from a football family.
Taremi was born into a football family. Alireza Taremi, his father, was a football player. He has formerly played for Pas Bushehr, Iranjavan, and Bushehr XI. His father spotted his talent and told him not to think of himself as inferior since he will end up at famous teams like Esteghlal and Persepolis.
Taremi began playing football when he was five years old. He used to exercise with his father. But it was unthinkable for him at first until he learned, at the age of 10 or 12, while playing in Bargh Bushehr, that he was excellent at it. He discovered he was skilled at football when he was playing against bigger kids and still captured their attention. Mohammad, Taremi’s elder brother, is also a football player.
He was drafted as a draftee
He was enlisted as a draftee after turning 21 and was sent to guard duty and had to water grass. They had all of the sports facilities at the camp, and he was in charge of maintaining them. He even wanted to play for a military team, but it didn’t work out. He tried out for Fajr Sepasi for a week under Mr. Yavari and trained for a week, but he was never called back. It was a trying time for him since not being able to play wounded him.
Money is the last thing on his mind in football
Taremi claims that money is the last thing on his mind in football and that he has never emphasized money throughout his career. He has not been paid well by any of the teams he has played for, whether in Iran, Europe, or Qatar. He believes that prestige is more important than money since money will arrive eventually.
His goal celebration kiss is for his mother
Taremi confessed that his goal celebration kiss is dedicated to his mother. His mother, a retired teacher, said she never imagined her son would come so far. She used to tell him that he was chasing the wind and that there was nothing in this voyage for him. His mother also said that she dislikes football and does not watch it very often.
She claims she doesn’t even watch her son’s game because of the stress it entails. Because she is stressed, she moves to another room and listens in on the game through voice.
He is an extremely generous individual
Taremi’s mother described her as a generous person. She recalled him buying a new bike for one of his buddies so that his father would not discover it when it was stolen, although earning a fair job at the time. he said that his friend’s father was completely unaware of what had occurred.
In 2018, Taremi was in a relationship with Iranian actress Sahar Ghoreishi. There was also speculation that Ghoreishi would soon become his wife, although their romance lasted just a few months. He revealed in March 2020 that he has moved on with a new relationship and is planning to marry.
The Porto player, who is famed for his bicycle kick finish against Chelsea in the 2020-21 Champions League, has acquired a net worth of roughly $10 million as of November 2022 through his incredible football career. Taremis said in an interview that he made 2.3 million with Al-Gharafa in one and a half years.
