On the 10th, the Korea Football Association denied some media reports related to the appointment of the next national team manager through its official Instagram.

The name of a specific person is sometimes mentioned as a potential candidate,” he said. “The above is completely different from the truth.”
“It is doubtful who the anonymous official (who reported to the media) is, and even if an official from the Korea Football Association made such a statement, it is only his personal opinion and not the official position of the association,” he emphasized.
Previously, speculative articles related to Bento’s successor were poured out, and a radio interview by a sports reporter drew great attention. He said, “(For the next coach), the general direction of the Football Association is likely to be determined by a Korean coach. There is ‘patriotism’ in the background of appointing a Korean coach. It seemed that the annual salary was set at less than 1 billion won to some extent.”

Coach Bento hoped to guarantee the contract period until the 2026 World Cup, co-hosted by the three North and Central American countries, Canada and Mexico four years later, but the Football Association only renewed the contract until the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, and then the period according to performance Suggested ways to extend In the end, the two sides could not narrow the difference, and Bento is said to have made up his mind at this time.
