Tehran Times - Team Melli are preparing to make history in the 2018 World Cup under guidance of Carlos Queiroz but there are rumors over the Portuguese’s future.
Without a shadow of a doubt, Iran national football team will be headed by Queiroz in Russia but his future after the World Cup remains uncertain.
Queiroz didn’t participate in the draw ceremony of the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 which was held in Dubai in early May.
Ex-Real Madrid coach said he didn’t attend the ceremony because his current contract expires after the 2018 World Cup and he is not Iran coach at that time.
In recent days, Queiroz has slammed Iran football federation over lack of preparation for the 2018 World Cup.
It's not the first time that the Iranian federation has been questioned by the former Manchester United assistant coach but this time Queiroz has no trouble finding the words to express his reluctance to continue with Team Melli.
The Iranian media reports suggest that Queiroz will most likely quit Team Melli after the 2018 World Cup.
Some have speculated the split between him and Iran football federation but there is 'no smoke without fire'.
Iran’s draw in the 2018 World Cup is cruel. Facing three continent’s powerhouse teams will be far from easy; however, Team Melli are a favorite to win the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019.
Queiroz has led Iran to back-to-back World Cups but has yet to win a title with Team Melli.
The Persians have a good chance of bringing an end to a 42-year title drought in Asia.
Now, we'll see what happens.
