On the afternoon of the 21st, Jeong Hae-seong, chairman of the Korea Football Association’s National Team Strengthening Committee, held a press conference at the Soccer Center in Jongno-gu, Seoul to explain the background of the appointment of the strength strengthening committee and the contents of the first meeting to appoint a new national team coach.

With the 3rd and 4th games of the 2026 North and Central America World Cup Asia 2nd qualifying round having to be played against Thailand during the March international match period (18th to 26th), there has been a possibility that the Football Association will prepare for the match against Thailand under a temporary manager system.

However, Chairman Jeong said that at the first meeting of the Power Strengthening Committee, which started at 11 a.m. that day and lasted about 3 hours and 30 minutes, there was a consensus on appointing an official director immediately.

Chairman Jeong said, “As it is an important time for the national team to reorganize, there was an opinion that it would not be right to delay the appointment of a coach until June, and that the team should be strengthened starting from these two games.”

He went on to explain, “Realistically, there are many obstacles to establishing a temporary manager system,” adding, “Many expressed doubts about whether a manager who wants to direct only two games will actually show up or whether he will step forward.”

Regarding the director’s ‘nationality’, Chairman Jeong said, “We agreed to keep both domestic and foreign directors open and prepare first.”

At the same time, he mentioned that since time was tight, the opinions of the power reinforcement committee members were focused on a domestic director rather than a foreigner.

He said, “In terms of timing, we were open to foreign coaches in terms of preparing for the two preliminary matches in March, including identifying players, but there were many opinions that more emphasis should be placed on domestic coaches.”

The Power Strengthening Committee will hold two to three meetings to select the next director.

All future meetings will be held privately, and a press conference will be held when the results are released.

Chairman Jeong set out eight requirements when searching for a new director candidate.
