The Portuguese quit on Wednesday night after a Bosnian side inspired by Edin Dzeko ended their hope of progressing into the knockout stages of the World Cup.
 
Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko ensured already-eliminated Bosnia secured the first World Cup victory in their history by scoring the opening goal and setting up a second for Roma's Miralem Pjanic in Salvador.
 
Iran fought back to score their first goal of the tournament through Charlton's Reza Ghoochannejhad but Bosnia quickly restored their two-goal advantage with a fine effort from Avdija Vršajevic to leave Queiroz's side bottom of Group F.
 
Former Real Madrid coach took charge the Iranian football team in 2011 and led the team to the 2014 FIFA World Cup. 
 
Queiroz said: 'I've shown my commitment to this project, but I haven't received any new contract offer.
 
'It's been an honor for me to work for Iran, I've fallen in love with the country. But you can't have a marriage when only one side wants to commit.
 
'I waited for them to make an offer, but I haven't received anything, so today I've come here to say 'thank you' to those who gave me the opportunity to do this job.
 
'I will always have Iranian football, my players and the fans in my heart.'
 
The Iranian football team opened its campaign with a draw against Nigeria in Group F but lost to Argentina and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
