The Korean national team is diligently concentrating on appointing the next coach. This time, he approached a world-class director. I contacted Chi Chi, who led the Brazilian national team. There is also a relationship with the Korean national team in friendly matches and the World Cup. However, coach Chichi rejected the offer for the Korean national team.
Argentina’s ‘TNT Sports’ and some Brazilian media reported on the 21st (Korean time), “Coach Chichi rejected the offer for the Korean national team. Coach Chichi left the Brazilian Football Association after the World Cup in Qatar and is currently taking a break.” 메이저놀이터
The Korean national team prepared for the World Cup under coach Paulo Bento. Coach Bento had a lot of talk and a lot of trouble, but he succeeded in advancing early to the ‘2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar’ and advanced to the round of 16 after 12 years fighting Uruguay, Ghana and Portugal in the group stage.
In the round of 16, he met Brazil and lost, but he did not give up his philosophy in the group stage. He was not intimidated by world-class teams and showed the ‘Pro-Active Football’ he had learned for 4 years. The association offered Bento a new contract, but Bento decided to take on a new challenge after the World Cup.
After the World Cup, he appointed Michael Müller as the head of the national coaching staff and began a full-scale search for candidates. The association said it would not officially announce the entire process, but candidates who were contacted one by one through foreign media are emerging.
I heard the story of contacting Jose Bordalas, who led Getafe and Valencia in Spain. However, Bordalas wanted to stay in the Spanish Primera Liga.
He also sent a love call to coach Chi Chi, who led the Brazilian national team until the World Cup in Qatar. Coach Chi Chi went through the South American World Cup qualifiers undefeated and tried to win the World Cup, but was eliminated in the quarterfinals. This time, the answer returned to Director Chichi was a refusal.
Müller, the head of the National Supervisory Board, plans to make a final candidate group by searching for the first candidate from blank paper. He is looking for the best person for the Korean national team by mobilizing even Chairman Müller’s personal network. The association’s plan is to confirm the next head coach by the end of February.
