Park Hang-seo (65), former head coach of the Vietnam national soccer team, expressed his conviction toward Korean and Vietnamese soccer.
After taking office in October 2017 for the Vietnam national soccer team and the under-23 (U-23) national team, Park led the team for five years and rewrote Vietnamese soccer history. He made the Asian Games semifinals (2018), won the AFF Championship (2018), won the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games football championship (2019, 2021), and made his first advance to the final World Cup qualifiers.
At the time of his appointment, the FIFA ranking was in the 130th place, but he raised it to 96th (as of December).
According to Newsis on the 14th, in an interview after arriving at Incheon International Airport, director Park said, “It is my belief that a person from the country should be the chairperson of the technical committee. I am not the person who has the right to appoint personnel, but I do not think it is very desirable.” .
Currently, the Korea Football Association (KFA) Technical Committee (National Team Power Reinforcement Committee) is Michael Müller from Germany. Müller, chairman of the Technical Committee, is currently in the process of appointing a new national team coach. 메이저놀이터
Coach Park expressed a cautious stance when asked who should be selected as the national team coach. He said, “I haven’t been able to understand the atmosphere because I’ve been away from Korean soccer for five years.”
Coach Park said, “I am no longer a coach of the Vietnamese national team, but an ordinary soccer player.” He said, “There are a lot of interests in Vietnamese players in various professional leagues, but there are many things that haven’t been done. Vietnam is conservative in player transfers. It’s not easy because Vietnamese clubs don’t think positively like we do.”
At the same time, he added, “I hope Vietnamese clubs have an open mind to advance overseas,” and added, “If there is an opportunity, I will talk about helping Vietnamese league players advance to a better place.”
