Carlos Queiroz to stay as Iran coach

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Carlos Queiroz finally reached an agreement with Iran Football Federation(IFF) on Saturday to work until the 2018 World Cup.

“I had a good session with the football federation and Iran’s sports minister officials today. We are looking forward to the future,” Queiroz told reporters.

The Portuguese coach had announced his resignation following a 3-1 friendly defeat to Sweden on March 31, claiming he had the support of neither the government nor the federation.

Former Real Madrid coach took Team Melli (the Iranian national football team) charge in April 2011 and led the team to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Iran also made the quarterfinals of the Asian Cup in Australia earlier this year, where it was defeated on penalties by Iraq.
