|90 percent agreement on Carlos Queiroz’s deal, official says||
TEHRAN – Head of the Iranian Football Federation (IFF), Ali Kaffashian, said that they are in 90 percent agreement on Carlos Queiroz’s deal.
The Portuguese coach is in Brazil right now and will finalize the agreement with the Iranian federation in his return, Kaffashian said.
“We’ve made our offers but disagreement is in the details. We will negotiate to reach agreement,” he said.
“The federation suffers from financial problems but we should be committed to our deal. We should be supported financially, otherwise we will have trouble,” head of IFF said.
Iran could not qualify for the 2014 World Cup next stage but played well against Argentina, where the Asian giant suffered a late loss.
Kaffashian says several big teams have requested to play friendlies against Iran.
“For example, Brazil is ready to play Iran but they wanted $2.5 million and we have to provide that,” head of IFF stated.
Iran will participate in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup in Australia, where the team has been drawn with the UAE, Bahrain and Qatar in Group C.
“We are not worried about facing Australia, Japan and South Korea. We have always problem against the small teams because our players underestimate them,” Kaffashian added.
