National team captain Son Heung-min mentions the issue of coach selection… “It’s bound to take time.”

Received ‘national team questions’ ahead of friendly match against Newcastle… “Find the right director”

Son Heung-min (Tottenham), captain of the Korean national soccer team, said of the current situation of spending the June international match period under the ‘temporary head coach’ system, “It is bound to take time to find a suitable coach.”

During a press conference held at AAMI Park in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on the 21st, a day before the friendly match against Newcastle United (England), Son Heung-min answered a question about the Korean national team under interim coach Kim Do-hoon.

Son Heung-min said, “My role is to play on the field (rather than appoint a coach),” and added, “It takes time to find the right coach to bring success.” 파워볼게임

Son Heung-min was also asked by local reporters whether he thought a Korean or a foreign leader should be appointed as the official head coach of the national team.

He said, “I don’t know.

“They all have pros and cons,” he said.

“Domestic directors may know Korean culture well, but may lack experience.

“It is a matter for the Korea Football Association to decide,” he said.

On the 20th, the Korea Football Association appointed coach Kim Do-hoon as the interim head coach to lead the national team in the two Asian second qualifying matches for the 2026 North and Central America World Cup to be held in June.

This is the second interim coach appointment following the March international match period when coach Hwang Seon-hong took charge.

Korea will play the 5th game of the second preliminary round away to Singapore on the 6th of next month, and the 6th game against China at home on June 11th.

The association announced that it made this decision because negotiations to select the national team coach are still ongoing and there is a possibility that the appointment will not be finalized until the A-match period in June.

While coach Jesse Marsh, who was originally the first choice candidate, has been appointed as the head coach of the Canadian national team, it appears that the association has not yet found a suitable next head coach.
