Former Manchester United assistant Carlos Queiroz is reportedly interested in the vacant Republic of Ireland manager role.
Miguel Delaney of the Independent has revealed that sources close to the Portuguese boss indicate he is keen on the role. It comes after it was confirmed this morning that Martin O'Neill and his assistant Roy Keane have parted company with the Republic of Ireland.
Queiroz's most recent role was a successful stint as Iran manager. The 65-year-old brought Iran to the 2014 and 2018 World Cup, recently finishing a point behind Spain and Portugal in Russia to narrowly miss out on progess to the knock-out rounds. He has already announced he will leave that role after January's Asian Games.
He has experience in international management, having worked with South Africa and Portugal in the past. However, his reign with Portugal ended in controversy when he was sacked after a disappointing 2010 World Cup and hit with a six-month suspension for insulting an anti-doping team.
Several other contenders have already emerged for the position, including Mick McCarthy and Sam Allardyce.
