It is understood that talks with Carlos Queiroz from the Korean FA about the possibility of the taking over of the national side have broken down.
Queiroz has been the Iran coach for eight years now it is yet thought that his time with the national side will soon be over. Since the World Cup, the Portuguese coach has been linked with many countries. On this list are Algeria, Egypt, Cameroon, and of course South Korea. Although the Korean FA made an approach to speak with him too.
This was confirmed by the Iranian FA as they said: "The Korean Football Association have contacted Queiroz and talked to about him becoming the manager."
It was reported however yesterday that these talks have broken down and the chances of the man from Portugal managing South Korea are slim. Meanwhile, another Portuguese man is thought to be in the frame for the job Paulo Bento.
The 49-year-old that managed Portugal for four years between 2010-2014 it is surmised has been approached by the Korean FA. Although it is thought that Bento might be one of a few candidates that KFA are looking at as they explore Europe for their new man.
