The Korea Football Association (KFA) has decided to restart the process of appointing a successor to Paulo Bento, the national football team coach, from scratch.
Regardless of the nationality of the next coach, as well as the initial candidate list, he said that he would find the right person after sufficient review.
This is reporter Kim Jong-seong.
Michael Müller, the head of the Power Reinforcement Committee, was selected as the first foreigner to be in charge of fostering the Korean national soccer team.
Regarding his first assignment, appointing the head coach of the men’s national team, he revealed an unexpected plan.
<Michael Müller / Korea Football Association Power Reinforcement Chairman> “I received a list of candidates from the former Power Reinforcement Committee. Thank you, but in the current situation, I will review with all directions open and review using my personal network.”
Rumors abounded that he would appoint a domestic leader as the next coach, but he explained that nothing has been decided regarding the nationality or contract period.
<Michael Müller / Korea Football Association Power Reinforcement Chairman> “(There is no standard for nationality.) We will also consider whether it is possible to live in Korea. Personally, I think it would be better to sign a long contract (including the 2026 World Cup). .”
It is interpreted as a remark considering the fact that the renewal of the contract with Bento was canceled due to the ‘contract period’.바카라
The association had initially announced that it would complete the appointment of a manager by the end of February, but
<Michael Müller / Chairman of the Korea Football Association’s Power Reinforcement Committee> “Quickly, quickly. Rather than unconditionally quickly, we will appoint a coach with certain competence according to our procedures.”
Meanwhile, Chairman Muller said he would communicate with the players regarding the appointment of the manager, drawing great attention to how internal opinions will be collected.
