"Thank you to all the fans for all the years of support and inspiration," he added, concluding "To the future."

Queiroz headed Iran in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, where Team Melli suffered two defeats against England and the U.S. and earned a win over Wales and failed to book a place in the knockout stage, a report by Tehran Times said.

The Portuguese coach’s contract ran out after Iran failed to qualify for the World Cup knockout stage.

He used to serve as the Team Melli head coach between 2011–2019.
