Bento confirmed 15 days before A match… When will the new national team coach be?
Michael Müller, head of the Korea Football Association’s National Team Strengthening Committee, announced that he would not rush to confirm the new national football team coach to succeed Paulo Bento. As a result, attention is focused on when the new director will be appointed.
At a press conference held on the 11th at the Seoul Sinmunro Soccer Hall, Chairman Muller announced that he would virtually ignore the first coach candidates selected under the former Chairman Lee Yong-soo. “We have received a list of candidates, but we will leave everything open and review again,” said
Mueller. Rather than unconditionally ‘quickly’, we will ensure that a certain director is appointed according to the procedure.” 토토사이트
As a result, the timetable set by the Football Association is more likely to have some leeway. Originally, the Football Association planned to select the final candidates this month and interview the candidates directly. Next month, it was planned to conduct individual negotiations in order according to the priority of the negotiation target, and finally appoint a director.
However, as Chairman Mueller publicly announced that he would slow down, it seems unlikely that he will be appointed within February. If the national team manager is not selected by March, the possibility of playing an A-match without a manager cannot be ruled out. The March A match period is from the 20th to the 28th.
In the case of former Bento coach, he was appointed right before the first A match. On August 17, 2018, Kim Pan-gon, former head of the National Supervisory Board, officially announced the appointment of Bento.
