You have no idea how many calls and contacts I have with Advisor Cha Du-ri and Coach Michael Kim.

served as technical advisor to the national team with the launch of Klinsmann in March of this year.

Advisor Cha Doo-ri is expected to have better communication with coach Hwang Sun-hong
the head coach of the Asian Games team

There will be new people coming in due to this coaching staff reorganization.
As for the current coaching staff
in addition to Coach Klinsmann
the following are head coach Andreas Herzog
coach Paolo Stringara

It is expected that Advisor Cha Doo-ri will be promoted to coach.
However, Coach Michael Kim is known to be assisting with the handover of duties until October and has decided not to participate in the national team’s trip to England in September.
An association official explained
It is absolutely impossible for Coach Michael Kim to withdraw from the national team because of personal problems.”
who took the helm of the national team in February of this year, has not won a single game with 2 draws and 2 losses in four games
and as criticism has recently grown about his working style of staying abroad
if advisor Cha Doo-ri joins as coach
he will join the Klinsmann team.
Attention will be paid to what new changes will occur.
The national soccer team will be convened at Incheon Airport on September 4th and depart for England to play two friendly matches against Wales and Saudi Arabia.
