Ex-Belgium Coach Marc Wilmots to Lead Iran National Team

TEHRAN – Former Belgium coach Marc Wilmots arrived in Tehran on Wednesday to sign a contract with the country’s national team until 2022, replacing Carlos Queiroz.

Wilmots visited Iran’s soccer federation facilities ahead of signing the official agreement.

The contract is worth $1,200,000, according to Iranian media reports.

Wilmots was a midfielder in several clubs during his career as a player including Bordeaux and Schalke 04 and played in four World Cups with his national team.

He is to lead Iran after managing the Ivory Coast national team since 2017.

Portuguese Queiroz was in charge of the Iranian team for eight years, he managed to best Team Melli in Asia, according to the FIFA ranking, but he failed to win the Asian Cup.

Queiroz, who is to lead Colombia national team, qualified the Iranians for two World Cups, in Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018, in which both they were eliminated at the group stage.
