Busan I¡¯Park coach Ian Porterfield (59) and Suwon Bluewings coach Cha Bum-keun (52) seem to be the most probable candidates for the post of South Korea¡¯s new national football team coach.
A high-ranking officer of the Korea Football Association (KFA) said on August 23 that the association is forming its opinion on which one to pick. Coach Porterfield turned his team into the surprise winners of the first K-League, and coach Cha was once a star player himself.
He added that if adopting either of them fails, the association will go for another world-class coach as soon as possible so the new coach could be named until mid September at latest.
No direct quotes, but this seems to be suggesting that Porterfield and Cha are being considered now by the KFA (there's a similar article in Korean on the Donga site too) - again more merit to the 'National team job playoff' match tonight between Busan and Suwon
Oh yeah, and Vogts for Korea - they're going through exactly the same list of names the media came up with last summer when Coehlo was being replaced.
I think having had 2 fuck up foreigner coaches the small minded Korean-ness will kick in and the next coach will have to be one of their own.
Cha would seem the obvious choice. We can only hope so.
