The Korea Football Association’s National Team Power Reinforcement Committee, which will supervise the appointment of a successor coach for Paulo Bento (54), completes the formation and begins full-fledged activities.
The Korea Football Association (KFA) announced on the 20th that it had confirmed the members of the national team’s power reinforcement committee in consultation with Michael Müller (Germany).
He added, “The Power Reinforcement Committee plans to hold its first meeting via online video conference on the 25th.”
A total of six people were named on the power reinforcement committee, including Cheongju FC head coach Choi Yoon-gyeom, Korea Professional Football Federation technical director Park Tae-ha, Incheon United head coach Cho Sung-hwan, Hanyang University head coach Jung Jae-kwon, Inha University sports science professor Kwak Hyo-beom, and Gwangju FC head coach Lee Jeong-hyo.
As coach Bento, who led the 2022 World Cup in Qatar to the round of 16, left after the tournament, the Football Association began searching for candidates for the next coach. Recently, a report centered on the Spanish media that “(The Football Association) contacted former Valencia coach Jose Bordalas” came out and attracted attention.
However, according to the Spanish media ‘RELEVO’ on the 20th, coach Bordalas is likely to return to Getafe (Spain). He dismissed the possibility of going to Korea, 헤라카지노 saying that the coach wanted a big league manager position rather than a national team team.
Moreover, coach Bordalas is currently considered a highly regarded leader on the European stage. He has been linked with major Spanish clubs such as Getafe as well as Sevilla.
In May 2021, he took the command tower of Valencia, where Lee Kang-in belongs, and led the runner-up in the Cope del Rey (King’s Cup).

The Korea Football Association explained, “Considering the specificity of the negotiations for the appointment of the national team coach, all future processes will be conducted privately.”
At a press conference on the 11th, Chairman Müller, who will oversee the appointment process, said, “We are leaving all possibilities open regarding the next manager,” and “There are five keywords. will,” he said.
