Brazil’s TNT broadcast reported on the 21st메이저사이트 (Korean time), citing radio station Gaucha, that “Chi Chi was offered to lead Korea until the 2026 World Cup qualifiers in North and Central America, but he declined.”
Director Chi Chi currently has no enemies. After the 2022 Qatar World Cup, on the 18th, it was officially completed with the Brazilian Football Association (CBF) for about six and a half years.
The results were disappointing. He led the 2018 Russia and 2022 Qatar tournaments, but failed to achieve any outstanding results. In Russia, they lost to Belgium in the quarterfinals. Qatar also failed to cross the threshold of the quarterfinals after losing to Croatia in a penalty shootout.
Afterwards, Chi Chi said, “It was a painful defeat, but I am calm. Now the cycle is over,” he said publicly, saying he was stepping down from the command tower.
The Korea Football Association is looking for a new head coach after former manager Paulo Bento resigned. The National Team Power Reinforcement Committee was formed with Chairman Michael Müller at the center. Last week, while former Valencia (Spain) coach José Bordalas was mentioned as the next coach through Spanish media, the Korea Football Association said, “Considering the specificity of the coach appointment negotiations, all future processes will be conducted in private.”
