Reporter Lee Jae-sang = Reports have emerged that former Algerian coach Vahid Halilhodzic (71, Bosnia and Herzegovina), who gave Korea the bitter taste of defeat at the 2014 Brazil World Cup, contacted the Korea Football Association, which is seeking a new head coach.
Head coach Halil Hodzic said in an interview with Bosnian media ‘Radio Sarajevo’ on the 28th (local time) that he had received an offer from the Korea Football Association.
He said through the media, “It is true that they (Korea Football Association) called me. But it was a short conversation.” 바카라
Director Halilhodzic added, “I need a break now. We’ll see what happens in the future.”
Coach Halilhodzic is currently unemployed after stepping down from the leadership of the Moroccan national team in August last year. He was abruptly sacked ahead of the World Cup finals due to a player appointment problem.
Born in Bosnia, he served as national team coach in Ivory Coast, Algeria, Japan and Morocco. In particular, he led the Algerian national team at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and defeated Korea, led by coach Hong Myung-bo, 4-2 in the group stage.
The Korea Football Association, which parted ways with coach Paulo Bento after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, is currently looking for a successor. Director Halil Hodzic is also seen as one of the candidates.
In addition to coach Halilhozic, names such as Jose Bordalas (Spain), former Getafe (Spain), and Chichi (Brazil), former Brazilian national team coaches, are being mentioned in foreign media.
