Press TV - Iranian officials have approached former Japan coach Philippe Troussier for the vacant managerial spot of the country's national team.
Troussier, known also as 'White Witch Doctor' for his success with African clubs and national teams said he would meet with Iranian soccer officials in Abu Dhabi Tuesday.
The former coach of Nigeria, South Africa and Burkina Faso further noted that he would mull other job offers and then make the best decision.
Although big names such as German Winfried Schafer, Frenchman Jacques Santini and Dutchman Dick Advocaat have been mentioned as possible candidates to steer Iran's national team, the Football Federation has yet to reach an agreement.
Iranian star Mehdi Mahdavikia earlier voiced concern over the future of Iran's national team which has been without a coach for months.
Iran will play Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, and Syria in group five of the third qualifying round for the 2010 World Cup.
