Carlos Queiroz responds angrily to Jurgen Klinsmann’s criticism of Iran
Carlos Queiroz has called on Jurgen Klinsmann to resign from FIFA’s World Cup technical study group, calling comments he made about Iran “a disgrace to football”.
Linsmann, who won the World Cup with West Germany in 1990 and works as a pundit for the BBC, claimed Queiroz’s side had “done a referee’s job” in Friday’s 2-0 win over Wales. .
The former Tottenham forward said: “Carlos really fits in with the national team and their culture, he failed in South America with Colombia and then failed to qualify with Egypt, and he failed to qualify for the World Cup with Iran. First came, where he worked. A long time.
“It’s not by chance, it’s part of their culture, how they play.
“He’s the referee. He’s the lineman and the fourth official, he’s constantly in his ear. There were a lot of incidents that we didn’t see. That’s their culture, they let you do your thing. Get rid of the game.
The comments clearly angered Queiroz, who took to Twitter on Saturday to respond.
He wrote, “No matter how much I respect what you did on the pitch, the Iranian culture, (the) Iranian national team and my players, those remarks about football. are insults.” “Nobody can undermine our integrity if it’s not on our level.”
Queiroz invited Klinsmann to the team’s training camp and met with the players “to learn from him about the country”: “We just want to follow closely what FIFA has to do as a member. What will be decided about the position.Qatar 2022 Technical Study Group.
“Because, of course, we expect you to resign before visiting our camp.”

This is not Queiroz’s first foray into the tournament.
He criticized the Iranian fans for not supporting the team in their opening defeat against England, and then confronted a journalist at a press conference on the eve of the Wales match, wanting to know what England manager Gareth Why doesn’t Southgate face the same level of questions?
