Schjønberg has a very "engaged" agent who is good friends with one of the journalists at the Danish sports newspaper.

as far as a contract goes, what type of offer would the KFA be willing to put on the table do ya think? something that carries past the asian cup or through the end of next year?

hello to all from hot Croatia.. :D
how i see here in newspapers main man for Korea NT is Robert Prosinečki..
http://www.index.hr/sport/clanak/robert ... 60995.aspx
if this is true, Korea will get one great coach who knows his job.. when he was assistent coach in CRO NT to Slaven Bilić, he was the main man for tactics.. and because of his knoweldge we beat England 2-0 and 3-2 and played good in Euro 2008, after he left the bench CRO isn't the same team..

Another article mentioning the Croatian

http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/new ... Cnewslist2

It says: "According to Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, Croatian football legend Robert Prosinecki is willing to lead the Korean national team for the next four years. "

It also says: "He scored 83 goals in 400 club matches." Why they deem this important enough mention AND to put it alone in it's own paragraph is beyond me. It has no relevance to the job.

Also mentioned in the article was the Dane, Schjonberg, who "has never led a national team and has only been head coach for two seasons in his 11-year coaching career in Germany, Denmark and Norway." but "The KFA is seeking someone more experienced with an impressive resume that can satisfy angry Korean fans." (Well, yea)

But before the KFA will hire someone they want to do a but of in house cleaning "The KFA is busy reforming its technical committee, which has been severely criticized by fans as being an absurd misnomer. The committee, led by former national team star Hwangbo Kwan, was supposed to provide tactical support to the national team, but did practically nothing in the past four years and fans want Hwangbo fired."
There are two routes to success in football. One is being good. The other is being lucky. You need both to win a championship. But you need only one to win a match.

Some amusing names being linked with the job in the Korean media; they've got the Dutch connection with Frank Rijkaard and Bert van Marwijk which is an obvious one given the previous KFA fetish for Dutch managers, but they're mentioning the likes of former Roma and Zenit boss Luciano Spalletti, Costa Rica manager Jorge Luis Pinto and ex-Celtic manager Neil Lennon. I do belive though that we brought his name up first on here so if they go with him then we should get the agent fees.

Is that the same Neil Lennon that was a pretty good play in Championship Manager 92/93? I use to buy him every chance I got. He is about the right age.

Yep almost definitely the one and the same. Absolute cunt as a manager though, hope he gets nowhere near the Korea job. The link has made it to the Scottish media now though:

Neil Lennon on shortlist for South Korea job
July 22, 2014

NEIL Lennon is on a shortlist to become the new manager of South Korea.

The former Celtic manager quit at the end of last season after guiding the Parkhead side to another Scottish title. Since then, he’s been a pundit at the World Cup in Brazil and was also linked to jobs in the United Arab Emirates, with Al Shabab targeting him. But he’s emerged as a strong candidate to take charge of Asian giants South Korea, who are on the lookout for a new boss.

Hong Myung-bo quit after the World Cup after the Koreans’ lamentable displays in Brazil, where they finished bottom of their group. And Lennon is one of a few 
European names on their shortlist for the role.

He will battle it out with former Galatasaray manager Frank Rijkaard, ex-Zenit St Petersburg and Roma boss Luciano Spalletti and former Spurs and Fulham manager Martin Jol. And surprise package of the World Cup Costa Rica’s current manager, Jorge Luis Pinto, is also on the list along with several local South Korean coaches.

South Korea have friendlies against Venezuela and Uruguay coming up next month and need a quick appointment to be confirmed.

Radomir Antic seems to be the latest name doing the rounds although to be honest all of these names are probably just agents trying to get their guy noticed.

I notice Lee Yong Soo was appointed the new head of the technical committee last week so expect to see some progress on the next manager soon. Depending on which report you read he's either committed to getting someone on board for the September friendlies or has said he will take his time in appointing the right man and the friendlies will come too soon.

Apparently there is a 30 man shortlist to review including 15 Koreans - I can't think of 15 Koreans that would be serious contenders for the job so does that mean they are just going to review every K-League coach for the role?

The Technical Committee have decided that the new boss will definitely be a foreigner, and they've supposedly narrowed down their shortlist to three names. No official confirmation of who they're considering, but the Technical Committee have released the list of eight key points any candidate will have to have achieved to even be considered. They are (briefly):

1.) Must have managed at a continental level tournament (Asian Cup, European Championships, Copa America etc)
2.) Must have experience of managing in World Cup qualifiers
3.) Must have led a nation to the last 16 at the World Cup
4.) Must have had club experience too in order to work well with K-League clubs
5.) Must have shitloads of coaching badges, so they can get involved in youth development when the national team doesn't have any matches
6.) Must not be too old
7.) Must be able to speak English well
8.) Must be available pretty much immediately

So, not expecting too much then. Guess this rules the likes of Farias out the running, some names already mentioned in the media as meeting these criteria and perhaps being under consideration are Bert van Marwijk, Fernando Santos, Milovan Rajevac and Jose Antonio Camacho.

That's quite a list of musts - especially if they are all AND and not OR.

Somebody who has managed at a continental finals, qualified for the World Cup AND taken a nation to the last 16 of the World Cup? That's not going to be a tremendously long list especially if they need to be relatively young, speak English and be available.

Just out of curiosity, why do they need to be able to speak English well? And are they going to need to see IELTS scores?

Do Santos, Rajevac or Camacho actually speak English?

They said they should be able to take training in English - presumably because the players might understand them rather than need an interpreter?

Interestingly they said 1 Korean coach met the criteria but they decided not to take his name forward...were they seriously considering bringing back a former coach like Huh Jung Moo I wonder?

So I see that Joseon TV are suggesting that:

Jorge Luis Pinto
Frank Rijkaard
Berter Van Marwijk
Stephen Keshi

Are all in the running. How would the average Korean fan feel about having a *shock* black Nigerian coach? I don't know. I can't see it going down too well.
