Iran coach Queiroz: Klinsmann comments a DISGRACE to football

Iran coach Carlos Queiroz has slammed Germany legend Jurgen Klinsmann after criticism from the pundit.

Klinsmann accused Iran of gamesmanship and said they "worked the referee" in their 2-0 win over Wales.

Former Manchester United assistant coach Queiroz took to social media to call out Klinsmann.

In a series of tweets on Saturday night, Queiroz wrote: "Even not knowing me personally, you question my character with a typical prejudiced judgment of superiority.

"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."

He invited Klinsmann to the team's camp to meet the players and learn about the country and its culture and "listen from our players how much they love and respect football".

Queiroz added: "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 the Qatar 2022 technical study group. Because, obviously, we expect you to resign before you visit our camp."
