Carlos Queiroz steps down as head coach of Iran

Tehran: Carlos Queiroz has stepped down as head coach of Iran.

The move comes after Team Melli’s 3-1 friendly defeat to Sweden on Tuesday and ends his four year association with the Asian powerhouse.

“After four years of work with the national team, I am proud of the team and the individual players,” the former Real Madrid and Portugal coach told the IR Iran Football Federation’s official website.

“Now I am sad to leave the team, but that’s life and I’m happy to be moving forward.”

Queiroz, 62, guided Iran to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and had signed a deal which was due to run until the next global gathering in Russia.

The charismatic 62-year-old also took Iran through to the quarter-finals of the 2015 AFC Asian Cup in Australia before seeing his charges bow out to Iraq on penalties.
