Former UAE coach Queiroz fined €120,000

By Staff

Former UAE national football team coach, Carlos Queiroz, has been asked to pay Euro 120,000 by a Portuguese court.

Queiroz is currently coaching the Iranian national team.

He has been ordered to pay Euro 120,000 as arrears to an Iraqi agent, from the time he was training the UAE national team in 1998.

The daily Portuguese newspaper Koryo da Manha reported that Queiroz owed Euro 41,000 as 10 per cent fee to the Iraqi agent Salem Jawad.

The court awarded an additional Euro 79,000 as fines.

Queiroz coached the UAE football national team for 13 months in return to Euro 450,000 annual salary.

He has resisted until now to pay, which led the Iraqi agent to the courts.

According to the newspaper the recent verdict is enforceable.
