The players of Jeonbuk Hyundai, who were on the stage of the World Cup

Jeonbuk players, including Kim Jin-soo (31), Baek Seung-ho (26), and Cho Kyu-seong (25), who participated in the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup with the Taegeuk mark, participated in the winter battery training camp held at the Jeonbuk Hyundai Clubhouse in Wanju, Jeonbuk on the 12th. stood in front of reporters. In the second group match against Ghana, Cho Kyu-seong became the first Korean player to record multiple goals in one World Cup match, and Kim Jin-soo assisted Cho Kyu-sung’s goal in that game. Baek Seung-ho fired a fantastic mid-range shot against Brazil in the round of 16.

Korean football reached the World Cup round of 16 for the first time in 12 years, but coach Paulo Bento, who coached the national team, left. After the 2018 Russia World Cup, he set a record of advancing to the round of 16 of the second away world cup since the 2010 South African tournament and the longest period of national team command tower ever, and put down the baton.  

Former coach Bento discussed renewing the contract with the Korea Football Association, but chose the final goodbye. The issue was the duration of the contract. Former coach Bento wanted to take charge of the national team for four more years until the 2026 World Cup in North and Central America. On the other hand, the Korea Football Association showed a willingness to discuss the contract again after seeing the results after renewing the contract for two years.  

Kim Jin-su, who experienced the World Cup stage for the first time in his life He could have struggled at the World Cup due to a thigh injury.

However, 온라인바카라 former coach Paulo Bento put Kim Jin-soo, a key player in his build-up soccer, into the final roster. Kim Jin-soo played as a starter in all four matches of the tournament.

Regarding the next coach, Kim Jin-soo said, “When Bento coach first came, (people) cursed a lot, but the players believed in the coach and worked for 4 years, and this result came out.” Then, no matter which coach came, I wanted him to take responsibility and play the role of a commanding tower. He emphasized, “I will win every game and show the results after 4 years.”

Cho Kyu-seong (25), the most popular star in the World Cup, had a similar idea. Cho Kyu-seong has been hidden behind Hwang Eui-jo (Olympiacos FC), but with this tournament as the starting point, he took the position of ‘one top’ of the Korean national soccer team. The rapid rise of Cho Kyu-sung was the moment when Bento’s mercenary skills saw the light.

Cho Kyu- seong He expressed his wish, “It would be great if there was a director with such a philosophy and a firm style of his own.”

Baek Seung-ho, who prevented defeat with a fantasy mid-range shot against Brazil in the round of 16, also agreed with his colleagues. “Preparing under the same guidance of the same director became the driving force for good results.” “If we prepare for the next World Cup with the same philosophy, we will be able to achieve similar or better results,” he predicted.

The Korea Football Association plans to complete the appointment of a new coach in February, but there is a possibility that it will be delayed somewhat. On the 11th, Michael Müller, the new head of the National Team Strengthening Committee, emphasized that “the important thing is to go in the right direction.”

Chairman Müller expressed his intention to appoint the best coach, saying, “We will establish a clear manager according to the procedure rather than unconditionally quickly.” It remains to be seen whether a new national team command tower will be born that will meet the expectations of both soccer fans and Jeonbuk players.
