Former Manchester United assistant manager Carlos Queiroz has revealed his interest at becoming the next Tottenham Hotspur boss.
The Premier League outfit is currently looking for a replacement for fellow Portuguese, Andre Villas-Boas, who was sacked on Monday.
The 48-year-old guided Iran to the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2015 Asian Cup after signing a two and a half year deal- due at the end of next summer’s World Cup- on April 4 2011.
Asked whether he was interested in the Spurs job, he said: “Absolutely, Tottenham is a club I really appreciate a lot and I have great admiration,”
In an interview with BBC World Football, Queiroz, who had two spells as Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant from 2002-2003 and then from 2004-2008, revealed he had “some private connection in the past” with Spur’s owner Daniel Levy.
He also said he would want to return to the Premier League
He is also considered as favourite for the vacant managerial post at West Bromwich Albion and a prospective successor to David Moyes, should the Old Trafford outfit decide try a new hand.
Meanwhile, Queiroz is most concerned about Iran’s preparation for the 2014 FIFA World Cup at the moment and recently traveled to South Africa to book hotel reservation for the team’s training camp.
Iran has been drawn along with Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Nigeria in the 2014 World Cup.
