“Korea, looking for a successor to Bento, captures Moreno, who was leading Spain…competition with Ecuador” (Xiasu)
It is news that head coach Roberto Moreno (46) has become a candidate for the head coach of the Korean national soccer team.
Spain’s ‘As’ reported on the 11th (Korean time), “Coach Moreno was caught on the radar of the two national teams. He is receiving interest from the Ecuadorian 토토사이트and Korean national teams, but he is contemplating what choice to make.”
The media continued, “Ecuador and Korea are looking for replacements for Gustavo Alfaro and Paulo Bento, respectively, after the World Cup in Qatar. When he chooses one of them, he will have his first adventure.”
Born in 1977, Moreno began his coaching career in earnest in 2011 as Roma’s head coach. He continued to assist coach Luis Enrique through FC Barcelona, Celta Vigo, and the Spanish national team.
Although short, he also managed the Spanish national team. Coach Moreno served as acting manager in place of manager Enrique, who left the team due to his family problems in 2019, and then took over as full-time manager. However, he left the team shortly after handing over the baton to manager Enrique.
Since then, he has been appointed manager of Monaco and Granada, but both have been sacked after not filling the year. He took charge of Monaco in the middle of the season in December 2019, but left the team after finishing the season in 9th place in the league, and was sacked in Granada with 6 wins, 10 draws and 13 losses.
The Korea Football Association (KFA) is currently in the midst of searching for a successor for coach Bento. According to overseas reports, former Valencia coach Jose Bordalas, former Brazilian coach Chichi, and former Morocco coach Vahid Halilhodzic were mentioned as candidates.
Meanwhile, KFA plans to complete the appointment of the manager before the A match in March. The national team will play the first leg of the March A match against Colombia in Ulsan on the 24th of next month, and then move to Seoul on the 28th to play the second leg against a new opponent (undecided). It is about six weeks before the debut of the new director.
