New Buriram coach Afshin Ghotbi
Afshin Ghotbi's career in soccer has taken him to Los Angeles, South Korea, Iran and, now, China.

"If that's not globalization, I'm not sure what is," he said with a laugh during an exclusive interview with ESPN FC.

Ghotbi's globetrotting ways haven't stopped. His coaching career has spanned three decades...
