Iran coach Carlos Queiroz showed green light to Iran's Football Federation (IFF) to renew his contract with the Team Melli. Former Real Madrid coach talked to the "2014" TV show on Thursday and admitted that he has received a written offer from IFF to extend his contract.
He continued to say that he will soon give his response.
"I have not opened that letter yet. Money is not an issue for me.
My only concern is that would the clubs release the players for national team camps? Would we have good training pitch to work with the players?" the Portuguese said.

Next step for Iran national team is AFC Asian Cup, which will be held in Australia from January 9 to 31, 2015. Queiroz believes Iran's performance in the World Cup raised the fan's expectation and anything except winning the Asian cup will not quench their thirst for success.
"When I arrived in Tehran over three years ago, the first goal was to reach the World Cup 2014. When we were guaranteed a place in the tournament, the next step was to bring prestige and honor to Iran in the World Cup. And now after the World Cup, everyone expects Iran to win the Asian Cup" The 61-year-old said.
Last night, Carlos Queiroz flew to Brazil again to watch the remaining World Cup matches and will return to Iran on July 16, 2014 to continue his negotiations with IFF.
