Local reports came out that former coach Chichi (61, Brazil), who was in charge of coaching the Brazilian national soccer team, was offered the job as coach of the Korean national soccer team, but turned it down.
Brazilian media TNT reported on the 21st (Korean time) that “Director Chichi was offered a managerial position by the Korea Football Association, but declined.” Coach Chichi led the Brazilian national team to the finals of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, which recently ended.
Former coach Chichi, who resigned from his 토토사이트 Brazil coaching post for about six years after the Qatar World Cup, is currently invincible. Therefore, there is basically no restriction on movement. Coach Chichi had coaching careers at Palmeiras and Corinthians before taking charge of the Brazilian national team.
At the time of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, coach Chichi raised the national team to the quarterfinals, but failed to advance to the semifinals. In the Qatar tournament, they won against Korea in the round of 16, but lost to Croatia in the quarterfinals.
As is well known, Korea broke up with coach Paulo Bento. They are looking for a new director. Prior to coach Chichi, he was recently linked with former Valencia coach Jose Bordalas.
The Football Association is conducting the process of appointing the next head coach behind closed doors. The plan is to appoint a new director by the end of next month or early March at the latest.
