Carlos Queiroz looking for a job
Former Real Madrid coach Carlos Queiroz is ready to listen to offers and West Ham could be looking in his direction soon.
The sacked Portugal coach, who won the Premier League twice as assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson, has revealed he rejected an offer from Fulham over the summer.
“I was still the coach of Portugal,” said Queiroz, “but in the summer I received some proposals. Japan and Australia were interested and then there was also an approach from Fulham where I had to answer negatively.
“I am sure that in the months ahead there will be offers.”
