Dudes been banned for "unsporting conduct", for 8 matches, but when players do it every single game, multiple times, then nothing happens. Nice standard FIFA is setting there.

Seems to me Korea is going to have to take what they can get and forget about anything they want.
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.

That's not true at all. If you storm the pitch and accost the referee in the middle of a match, you're going to be suspended. Due to the length of the verbal assaults and the repetition of them in the same game, the ban would naturally be longer than for one simple incident. 8 games does sound slightly long to me, but not absurdly long. I wonder if the 8 games is based on prior offences as well.

Realistically, the ban just means he won't manage international soccer ever again (who would hire a new coach knowing he can't coach a year's worth of competitive matches?)

Perhaps Martin Rennie's got one eye on the job already, which would explain why he's scouting all the big name players in the K1...

Candidates for nat'l football coach narrowed down to 4 or 5: official
27/08/14

South Korea has narrowed down the candidates for its men's national team head coach to four or five, the sport's technical director said Wednesday.

Lee Yong-soo, head of the technical committee at the Korea Football Association, told reporters that the goal is to fill the coaching vacancy within September but did not name any of the candidates.

"We have contacted four to five candidates about the position," Lee told reporters at the National Football Center in Paju, north of Seoul. "We hope to have the new coach on the bench by the time we play friendly matches in October."

South Korea has been searching for a new football coach since early July, after Hong Myung-bo stepped down to take the fall for the country's winless exit from the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Earlier this month, the KFA appeared close to reaching a deal with Bert van Marjiwk, a former bench boss for the Netherlands, but the negotiations broke down on taxation issues and on where the coach would spend the majority of his time as the South Korea coach.

South Korea will play Venezuela on Sept. 5 and Uruguay on Sept.

8 with three assistant coaches on the bench. Shin Tae-yong, a former head coach in the top-flight domestic competition K League Classic, will serve as the de facto interim head coach. He will be joined by two assistants from Hong's regime: Park Kun-ha and Kim Bong-soo.

After the two September matches, South Korea is trying to schedule matches against Costa Rica and Paraguay in October.

Lee Yong-soo said the KFA has gone as far as discussing salary with some candidates and added, "The most important thing is to bring a coach who will dedicate himself to South Korean football with passion."

Some media reports claimed recently that Jorge Luis Pinto, a Colombian who led the upstart Costa Rica to the quarterfinals at this year's World Cup, was a candidate for South Korea. Lee said Pinto is not on the shortlist of candidates and the KFA has never contacted him directly.

The technical chief had earlier laid out specific criteria for the successful candidate, including winning experience at the club or the international level. Lee admitted it hasn't always been easy to find individuals that meet the KFA's standards.

"The candidates that do qualify don't come cheap," Lee said.

"Not a lot of coaches view this position positively. I think they feel the pressure of having to go through the qualifying stages for the next World Cup."

Lee also revealed that many candidates have said they'd prefer to be based in Europe even if they take over the South Korean team.



That was always going to be the problem with targeting a big name foreign coach to take the job now with a view to Russia 2018, the Korean job just isn't an attractive long term post unless there's serious $$$ that comes with it. They'd have had no problems getting a big name to take the job when Choi Kang-hee departed the scene, a bit like when Jo Bonfrere was punted and Dick Advocaat stepped in with participation at the 2006 World Cup already assured, but they're not going to get someone right now. They'd be better off going through the Wikipedia pages of West Asian national football teams and using their "Previous Coaches" sections to draw up a shortlist if they want a foreign manager who would take the job at this moment...

Lee and his chums have flown back to Europe to discuss contracts with a number of candidates.. they've got five names and are going to chat to a bunch of them with a view to having someone appointed by September 15th.

What odds on Shin Tae-yong being manager for the Asian Cup, particularly if he does well in these two upcoming friendlies? Must be a very good possibility of that if nothing concrete happens with these folk they're targeting in the next couple of weeks.

South Korea have hired Uli Stielike

South Korea hire Stielike as head coach

By Peter Rutherford
SEOUL, Sept 5 (Reuters) - South Korea have hired former Germany international Uli Stielike as the new coach of the national soccer team, the Korea Football Association announced on Friday.
Stielike, who played 42 times for West Germany and has managed Switzerland and Ivory Coast, has been given a contract through the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The KFA said Stielike would arrive on Monday in time for South Korea's friendly against Uruguay.
Former international Shin Tae-yong and two other local coaches are taking charge of Korea's home friendly against Venezuela on Friday.
Stielike replaces Hong Myung-bo, who resigned in July after South Korea's first round exit from the World Cup.

Impressive playing record!
He missed a pen in the world cup semi shoot-out at Spain 82 against France, wasn't fatal though!

Nothing to shout about as a manager though...
Led Ivory Coast through African Nations Cup qualifying unbeaten against cannon-fodder but was not in charge for the finals.
Obviously not first choice for the job but decent experience working with young players and working overseas going off his wiki.
Seems like a bit of a step up for him.

Expectations of the team seem quite high these days, and it's a young squad with a winnable comp. coming up in January, it's a big chance for him, hope he takes it. Hopefully he can work well with the German based Korean players.

If Rennie does a good job with the Ferrets, perhaps he'll be the next next NT boss.

A manager in the Asian countryhopping bracket from the same country that won the World Cup this summer? When do I get my recruitment fee from the KFA?

I hope he does well. And I hope the people who wanted Hong out are happy, if indeed they ever notice.

If they notice, that will have meant the new bloke at least qualified for the WC and held on to the job for 3.5 years!

Only German player ever to miss a penalty in a World Cup penalty shoot out.

I expect as usual he'll be favouring all the players born in the same province as him.
