After negotiations with Dutch manager Bert van Marwijk fell through, other candidates are being considered. Lee Yong-soo, the head of the technical committee of the Korea Football Association, said at a press conference on Monday that Shin Tae-yong, former Seongnam FC manager, will lead the national team until the technical committee can find another foreign coach.
Meanwhile, the roster for the upcoming friendly matches against Venezuela and Uruguay set for early next month was announced. Son Heung-min, whose Bundesliga club refused to let him play in the Asian Games, will be among the best 11, but Park Chu-young who is currently not playing for any club will not be seen on the field.
