TEHRAN – Sepahan coach Zlatko Kranjcar says he wants to take over as the Iranian football team's head coach.
It has emerged over the past month that Iran’s Portuguese coach Carlos Queiroz is not going to extend his contract after the 2014 World Cup.
“I’d love to coach Iran. If the Iranian football officials negotiate with me about the job, I will think about it,” the 58-year-old Croat said.
Sepahan will host Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia on Wednesday in Isfahan in Group D of the AFC Champions League.
“We’ve been drawn in a tough group. In my opinion the better team will win the match on Wednesday. I think Al Hilal looked vulnerable at the back but they are strong in the counter attack,” Kranjcar added.
