“Ex-Brazilian head coach Chichi, Korean head coach job exam” reported by local media

Local media reported that former Brazil national team coach Chi Chi (61) was offered the position of coach of the Korean national soccer team, but turned it down.

Citing a report by local radio station GAUCHA on the 21st, Brazil’s TNT broadcast reported that former coach Chichi was offered to lead the Korean national team to the 2026 World Cup qualifying round, but declined.

Former coach Chichi, who made a name for himself by leading prestigious teams in Brazil’s national league, such as the Corinthians, has led his native Brazil’s national team for nearly six and a half years since they were eliminated in the group stage of the 2016 Copa America (South American Football Championship). In this Qatar World Cup, they defeated Korea in the round of 16 and suffered the pain of being eliminated. 메이저사이트

After the pain of being eliminated in the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, it seemed to prove again the majesty of the ‘strongest samba corps’ by running an undefeated march until the second round of the Qatar World Cup group stage. However, after losing the penalty shoot-out to Croatia in the quarterfinals, he announced his intention to step down.

Right after completing about six and a half years of companionship with the Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) on the 18th, there is currently no team involved.

After the resignation of former coach Paulo Bento, the Korea Football Association is striving to appoint a successor. Under the new Michael Müller National Team Power Reinforcement Committee, foreign coaches are in the process of searching for candidates.

Previously, there was a report through the Spanish media that the Korea Football Association was contacting former Valencia (Spain) coach José Bordalas as the next coach.
