Iranian coach Queiroz slams Korean counterpart’s remarks


TEHRAN, Iran’s Portuguese coach on Wednesday fired back at comments made by his South Korean counterpart before next week’s crunch Asian zone 2014 World Cup qualifier in Ulsan dubbing them “shameful.” “Choi (Kang-Hee) comments has brought shame to (South) Korean football… he disrespected Iranian footballers and coaches,” Carlos Queiroz was quoted as saying by the ISNA news agency before leaving for South Korea. “He is discontent that his team was not treated well in Iran but I should say that we provided them the best facility,” he added. South Korea suffered problems ranging from visa issues to poor training facilities and dangerous tackles during their trip to Tehran last October, when they lost 1-0 in a bad-tempered clash.
