It is news that, following coach Jose Bordalas, coach Chichi turned down the head coach of the Korean men’s soccer team. It is difficult to find a successor for former manager Paulo Bento.
Brazilian media ‘TNT’ reported on the 21st (Korean time), citing ‘Gaucha’, that former Brazilian coach Chichi received an offer from Korea, but rejected it.
At the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, which ended last year, Korea made its second away round of 16. However, he could not extend his accompaniment with Bento. A renewal of the contract was discussed, but an agreement was not reached due to differences in terms of the contract period.
Since then, he is in full swing to find Post Bento. The Korea Football Association moved quickly. Chairman Lee Yong-su was replaced with Chairman Michael Müller as Chairman of the Power Reinforcement Committee. Afterwards, Chairman Muller appointed Park Tae-ha, technical director of the Korea Professional Football Federation, Choi Yoon-gyeom, professional soccer K League 2 coach of Cheongju FC, K League 1 Incheon United coach Cho Seong-hwan, Gwangju FC coach Lee Jeong-hyo, Hanyang University coach Jeong Jae-kwon, and Inha University sports science professor Kwak Hyo-beom as members of the committee. did. 메이저놀이터
The association said it would proceed with the entire process privately, but the fact of the proposal is being revealed through the national media of the people contacted before the first meeting.
It all started with coach Jose Bordalas. He is also a famous figure as a teacher of Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca), who took the baton in Valencia in the Spanish professional football Primera Liga in the past. But Bordalas refused.
The person I contacted afterwards was Director Chi Chi. Coach Chi Chi broke up with the Brazilian Football Association on the 18th without an extension after about six and a half years of companionship. As invincible as it is, Korean football has been in contact with it, but it seems that it has not shaken their hearts.
The Korean national team will have its first A-match with the new head coach in March. In other words, a new director must be appointed by March. In terms of time, it is a situation with a little more than a month. Will it be possible to find a person suitable for the talent the Korea Football Association wants until now?
