Tehran Times - Carlos Queiroz left Tehran for Lisbon Thursday morning after the Football Federation Islamic Republic of Iran (FFIRI) didn’t extend his contract.

Queiroz marked his 100th match as head coach of Iran national football team against Japan.

Under tutelage of Queiroz, Iran won 60 matches, suffered 13 losses and registered 27 draws.


The ex-Real Madrid coach steered Team Melli to back-to-back qualifications for the World Cup for the first time in Iran's history.

Queiroz was the longest serving coach in the history of Iran's national football team.

He has been linked with Colombia hot seat.
