Carlos Queiroz Snubs Iranian Football Federation
Portuguese Coach Carlos Queiroz, who was reported to be on the verge of taking the Team Melli job, has decided not to pursue the possibilities citing family reasons.
According to a report published in the Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) Ali Kaffashian the Iranian Football Federation (IFF) Chief told reporters that they had received the news via an email from Queiroz.
“We were ready to sign the contract. We had even agreed to certain terms including insurance and a 20% advanced payment upon signing of the contract, but Carlos Queiroz had a sudden change of heart” said Kaffashian.
“Our goal was to sign a three year agreement that would take us to 2014 World Cup. Queiroz wanted a clause in the contract that would entitle him to the entire sum in case of an unexpected termination of our agreement. We could not agree with that” continued Kaffashian.
In an apparent attempt to poke fun at the situation, Kaffashian told reporters that it seemed to him that the IFF should also consider negotiating with the spouses of its foreign candidates.
“We will now proceed with other candidates on our list” continued Kaffashian “and will inform the public once we have more to share”. He also stressed the fact that the IFF is focusing only on foreign candidates at this point.
