Carlos Queiroz set to leave Iran at the end of the Asian Cup
Iran's long-serving Portuguese manager Carlos Queiroz is expected to step down from his position as manager of the Iranian national team.
As Marca have recently reported, Queiroz is set to take over the vacant managerial position with Colombia.
Queiroz has built a remarkable reputation among Iranian fans, leading the country to back to back World Cup finals (in 2014 and 2018) for the first time in the nations history.
His reign has also seen Iran rise to the number one Asian team in world football, currently ranked 29th in the FIFA rankings.
And they have started the 2019 Asian Cup in style too, beating Yemen 5-0 in their first game of the tournament.
With Queiroz impressing at Iran with his disciplined style and ability to compete with the heavyweights of world football, Colombia have come calling.
The 65-year old former Real Madrid manager, who has also served as assistant manager to Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, has been with Iran for 8 years, and will be hoping to win the Asian Cup before he departs.
Queiroz would be the first Portuguese manager to coach a South American team since 1944.
