Full-scale work has begun to appoint the next head coach of the Korean national soccer team.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 4th, “Recently, Lee Yong-soo, the head of the National Team Power Enhancement Committee, expressed his gratitude and repaired it, and newly appointed Michael Müller, the current head of the association’s technical development committee, as his successor.”
This is the first time that a foreigner has been appointed as the head of the National Team Strengthening Committee. Chairman Müller, who is from Germany, took office as a leader training instructor for the Korea Football Association in April 2018, and since the fall of that year, he has served as the association’s technical development chairman twice. He said, “I am very happy and thank the Korea Football Association for choosing me. I am well aware of how high the status of the national team is in Korea. I will do my best to carry out this important mission well.” 토토
Müller’s first task is to appoint a new national team manager. Korean soccer performed well in the 2022 Qatar World Cup, which ended last year, with the second round of 16 in history. However, the renewal of the contract failed due to a disagreement over the contract period with coach Paulo Bento, who led it. We are currently looking for a new head coach.
The first director candidates were selected. The association explained, “We plan to discuss the candidates for the first round of supervision prepared under the former chairman Lee Yong-soo at the newly formed Power Reinforcement Committee.”
A question mark may follow. It was said that former chairman Lee made a list mainly of domestic coaches after the extension of his accompaniment with coach Bento failed. Fans as well as players want a foreign coach after experiencing the national team that has grown under Bento’s guidance. Regardless of the factual relationship, the appearance of the successor inheriting the baton of the predecessor is difficult to avoid criticism for lacking fairness.
The Korea Football Association said, “The new committee centered on Chairman Muller may add candidates if necessary. When the committee is newly formed, the appointment process will begin in earnest, so the original goal of appointing a new director by the end of February remains unchanged.”
Chairman Müller is scheduled to appear at an official event next week to talk about the appointment of the next command tower. The contoured post-Bento find is now expected to be painted as well.
