This article concentrates on meaning construction via sport declarations in the Iranian sport context, as in those published by Mohammad Mayeli Kohan, the previous coach of the Iran National Football Team. It also examines what problems (insider or outsider) readers may encounter in meaning interpretation. Apparently, the writer was indirectly adverting to the unprofessionalism, disguise and mendacity that amply dominate the Iranian Football community.
