Reporter Lee Sang-wan = It seems that the process of appointing the head coach of the Korean national soccer team is speeding up. The real name of the candidate is being discussed in the local media in Spain.
According to several leading Spanish media outlets, including Mundo Deportivo and AS, on the 18th (Korean time), Jose Bordalas (59), former Valencia coach, was on the list of candidates for the Korean national soccer team.
Coach Bordalas is from Spain and started his career as a leader in the Alicante B team in 1993, taking charge of Valencia, where Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) played last season.
Coach Bordalas, who mainly leads the lower league teams and has the nickname ‘promotion contract’, promoted Alaves to the first division in the 2015-2016 season, and led Getafe to La Liga in the 2016-2017 season.
Since then, he has led Getafe to a stable level and has even advanced to the Europa League finals and round of 16 of the European Football Federation (UEFA).
He took charge of Valencia last season in recognition of his leadership in the first division, but became invincible within a year as he had friction with the club’s leadership.
Currently, Bordalas is known to be receiving offers from a number of La Liga clubs.
In addition to director Bordalas, it is said that there are other candidates from Spain.
A journalist familiar with the Spanish football transfer market said through his social media (SNS), “In addition to coach Bordalas, it seems that we will contact a manager with La Liga experience first.” 바카라사이트
The Korea Football Association (KFA) is moving swiftly to select a coach after appointing Michael Müller, a German-born head of the Power Reinforcement Committee, earlier this month.
At the time, Chairman Müller said, “I will open all possibilities,” and expressed his intention to start recruiting from the’zero (0) base’.
As the real names of the candidates have been discussed in the Spanish media, the KFA movement is expected to accelerate.
In particular, it seems that they are drawing up a list of candidates centered on Spanish coaches, so it is speculated that the focus and direction were placed on the ‘leading build-up’ stance created by former coach Paulo Bento.
