After another news conference when questions on Iranian politics predominated, Iran’s head coach Carlos Queiroz approached a BBC reporter. At the conclusion of the pre-game news conference, the head coach sought to know why other football managers were not subjected to similar inquiries about political events.
Shaimaa Khalil, a BBC reporter, posted a video of the head coach saying, “Why don’t you ask Southgate these type of questions?”
I am conversing with you. I’d want the opportunity to speak with you. Now that the press conference has ended, I have one question for you. Do you believe it is appropriate to also ask other coaches questions? “he said.
“I ask simply just one inquiry. Why not consult with the other coaches? Why don’t you query Southgate on his opinion of England and the US leaving Afghanistan and all the women in peace? Why don’t you inquire that?” he continued.
