Paulo Bento, a candidate to succeed the former South Korean men’s soccer team coach, was also discussed. Former Spain national team coach Robert Moreno is on the lookout.
Spanish media ‘As’ reported on the 11th (Korean time) that coach Moreno was nominated for the next coach of the Ecuadorian national team as well as Korea. 스포츠토토
The Korean national football team recently announced the schedule for the first A-match in 2023, March A-match. After facing Colombia on the 24th in Ulsan, they will face another South American team in Seoul on the 28th. The time and place have been set, but the director who will lead is undecided.
He broke up with Bento after advancing to the round of 16 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The possibility of extending the accompaniment was discussed, but it was canceled due to disagreements over the contract period.
Since then, the Korea Football Association (hereinafter referred to as the association) has established a power reinforcement committee led by Michael Müller, the head of the National Team Power Enhancement Committee, and is concentrating its efforts on finding a successor. Although the appointment process was declared confidential, it was later reported that former Algeria coach Vahid Halilhodzic, former Getafe coach Jose Bordalas, former Brazil national team coach Chichi, and former Hamburg coach Torsten Fink were negotiating with the association. There have been no new characters for a while, but with this report, director Moreno has been nominated for a new role.
It is not an exaggeration to say that among the lists mentioned so far, his career is the fastest. Coach Moreno built his leadership skills while coaching at AS Roma (Italy), FC Barcelona, and Celta Vigo (above Spain).
Since then, he has also served as head coach for one of the best teams in the world, the Spanish national team. He also has a directorial career. In March 2019 he took over as acting Spanish national team manager. It was time to take a break due to personal circumstances of coach Lues Enrique, who was the head coach at the time. After that, it was short, but he also took on the official directorship. As coach Enrique returned, it was only 5 months, but he added a career as a leader who led the invincible armada. After that, he went through AS Monaco (France) and Granada (Spain) and has been taking a break since March last year.
Considering that his favorite tactic he used until recently was the 4-4-2, his style also suits the Korean national team. Former coach Bento used not only 4-2-3-1 and 4-3-3, but also 4-4-2, and Korea’s performance at that time was good. It is expected that a decision will be made in early March whether Moreno will take the lead in Korea. There are many variables waiting for him, such as having to compete with the Ecuador national team and having to leave Europe for the first time in his career.
