Kafashian: Contract prepared for Queiroz to lead Iranian national football squad

Tehran, Aug 20, IRNA — Iran Football Federation President Ali Kafashian said on Wednesday that contract is prepared for Carlos Queiroz to lead Iran national football team from tomorrow.
Kafashian said that Iran decided to hire Queiroz and sign a new contract with him.

On small differences between the Iranian Football Federation and Queiroz, Kafashian said that Queiroz prefers to recruit Iranian coach in the team but would not stay as the first aide, but, ˈwe insist the Iranian coach should be the first aide.ˈ

Queiroz guided Iran to World Cup finals in Brazil eleven months ago.

His men had good performance against Nigeria and fantastic show against Argentina but a 3-1 defeat against Bosnia-Herzegovina ended Iranˈs hopes of advancing to the knockout stages.

Iran will have to prepare itself for the 2015 AFC Asian Cup, which will be held in Australia from January 9 to 31, 2015.
