Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been tweeting often recently, and one of those tweets included some support for the University of Michigan football team.

In response to a tweet from a man in Ann Arbor talking about how Michigan was 8-8 in its last 16 games under Jim Harbaugh, Ahmadinejad said, "With a hard work ethic Inshallah the U of M will return to its glory days."

Ahmadinejad served as president of Iran from 2005-2013. A definition of Inshallah from Merriam-Webster says it means "if Allah wills" or "god willing."
