Queiroz Hits Back At Germany World Cup Winner

Iran coach Carlos Queiroz has hit back at German FIFA World Cup Winner Jurgen Klinsmann and asked him to resign from the FIFA technical committee after his criticism of his side.

Klinsmann, who won the 1990 World Cup with Germany, had criticised Iran for their rough playing style, insisting it is in their “culture” to go hard and a unsportsmanlike, insisting Queiroz fits their profile perfectly.

However, Queiroz has not kept quiet and hit back at Klinsmann, who is member of Arsene Wenger’s technical committee at the FIFA World Cup and should be neutral towards all teams, asking him to resign.

“Dear Jurgen; You took the initiative to call me Carlos, so I believe it is proper to call you Jurgen. Right? Even not knowing me personally, you question my character with a typical prejudiced judgment of superiority,” he wrote on social media.

“No matter how much I can respect what you did inside the pitch, those remarks about Iran Culture, Iran National Team and my Players are a disgrace to Football. Nobody can hurt our integrity if it is not at our level, of course.

“Even saying so, we would like to invite you as our guest, to come to our National Team Camp, socialize with Iran players and learn from them about the Country, the people of Iran, the poets and art, the algebra, all the millennial Persian culture… And also listen from our players how much they love and respect Football. 

“As American/German, we understand your no support. No problem. And despite your outrageous remarks on BBC trying to undermine our efforts, sacrifices and skills, we promise you that we will not produce any judgments regarding your culture, roots and background and that you will always be welcome to our Family.

“At the same time, we just want to follow with full attention what will be the decision of FIFA regarding your position as a member of Qatar 2022  Technical Study Group. Because, obviously, we expect you to resign before you visit our camp. Carlos.”
