Carlos Queiroz Remains Favorite to Take Charge of Mexico: Report
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran national football team coach Carlos Queiroz still remains a candidate to take charge of Mexico national football team.
Queiroz doesn't have a history of consistently fielding attacking teams, but does have a wealth of experience around the world, ESPN reported.
The fact the Portuguese coach has only extended his contract with Iran until after January's AFC Asian Cup hints that the 65-year-old would be open to a new challenge. His situation buys the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) time.
Jorge Sampaoli, Jose Pekerman and Quique Sanchez Flores -- out of work and in some ways natural candidates -- don't appear to be prominently on the radar, according to one source close to the federation with knowledge of the situation.
Former Argentina coach Gerardo "Tata" Martino also is a candidate to take the helm of El Tri.
