Football Association looking for Bento’s successor, contacting former Moroccan coach Halil Hodzic”
It has been reported that the Korea Football Association, which is looking for a successor to former men’s national team coach Paulo Bento, 먹튀검증has contacted former Morocco coach Vahid Halilhodzic.
In an interview with Radio Sarajevo, a Bosnia-Herzegovina media reported on the 28th (local time), former coach Halil Hodzic was asked if he had received an offer from the Korea Football Association, saying, “It is true that they called me, but we only had a brief conversation. Whether it’s the national team or the club, there are a lot of people who call me, and I always answer briefly.” He said, “I need a break now. We will watch what happens in the future.”
The Korea Football Association plans to find a replacement for Bento by the end of February. Former coach Halil Hodzic seems to be one of the people on the list.
Former coach Halilhodzic laid down the leadership of the Moroccan national team in August last year. It was at the point where the World Cup in Qatar was only three months away. The foreign press speculated that this was because the Moroccan Football Association and former coach Halil Hodzic expressed differences in the selection of players.
Former head coach Halilhodzic was born in Bosnia and served as national coach for Côte d’Ivoire, Algeria, Japan and Morocco. He was sacked as coach of Côte d’Ivoire four months before the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. He was the Japanese coach, and he was sacked two months before the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
In the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, he led the Algerian national team to the round of 16 after defeating Korea, led by coach Hong Myung-bo, 4-2 in the group stage.
