A local report came out that former Brazilian coach Chichi had turned down the job as the manager of the Korean national soccer team.
On the 21st, Brazil’s TNT broadcast quoted local radio station ‘Gaucha’ and said that coach Chichi was offered to lead Korea until the 2026 World Cup qualifiers in North and Central America, but he declined.
Coach Chichi is the commander who led the Brazilian national team until the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
He voluntarily resigned after the Qatar Games and is currently without an enemy. The Korea Football Association contacted him for appointment, but it is news that coach Chichi rejected it.
Coach Chichi, who took the helm of the Brazilian national team in 2016 after serving as coach of the prestigious Corinthians in Brazil, has achieved achievements such as winning the Copa America in 2019 and runner-up in the Copa America in 온라인카지노 2021. After losing the Copa America final in July 2021, he went undefeated in 17 international matches (14 wins, 3 draws) until the second leg of the Qatar World Cup group stage.
However, he had no ties to winning the World Cup. In the 2018 World Cup in Russia, they failed to cross the threshold of the quarterfinals, and in the 2022 Qatar tournament, they won 2 wins and 1 loss in the group stage and won 4-1 against Korea in the round of 16, but were knocked out early by Croatia in the quarterfinals.
His performance with an outstanding star player named Neymar is shabby.
As a result, coach Chichi voluntarily resigned after losing in the quarterfinals, ending his six-and-a-half-year stint with the Brazilian national team.
Meanwhile, after the resignation of former coach Paulo Bento, the Korea Football Association is looking for a new head coach, led by Michael Müller.
Recently, former Valencia (Spain) coach Jose Bordalas was mentioned as a candidate through Spanish media, but the Korea Football Association said, “Considering the specificity of the negotiations for the appointment of a coach, all future processes will be conducted in private.”
