At the Qatar World Cup, the Korean national soccer team achieved a valuable achievement by advancing to the round of 16.
The head coach at the center, Paulo Bento, decided to put an end to his four-year accompaniment with Korea.
Coach Bento led the second round of 16 expedition in Korean soccer history and seemed likely to renew the contract, but after the round of 16 match with Brazil, he announced that 'the contract with Korean football is over' and 'there is no renewal'.
It is known that he chose to break up with the Korea Football Association over the period of his contract.
Coach Bento wanted a four-year extension until the 2026 World Cup in North and Central America, and the association seems to have proposed a plan to renew the contract until next year's Asian Cup and extend it afterwards.
As the contract with Bento is terminated, the association will now have to find a new national team coach.
First of all, you have to decide whether you want to appoint a domestic coach or if you want to appoint a foreign coach once again.
Among the candidates for domestic coaching, the article reported that former Olympic soccer team coach Kim Hak-beom and Gangwon coach Choi Yong-soo were being discussed.
