Jeong Hae-seong, new national representative, Chairman of the Power Strengthening Committee.

With Hwang Sun-hong of the Olympic soccer team and former Vietnam national soccer team coach Park Hang-seo mentioned as candidates for the temporary command post of the national team, the Korea Football Association (KFA) Power Strengthening Committee will hold its third meeting. A new interim commander is expected to be appointed as early as this meeting.

KFA will hold the 3rd National Team Strengthening Committee meeting at the Soccer Center in Jongno-gu, Seoul at 2 p.m. on the 27th.

The main agenda of the 3rd meeting of the Power Strengthening Committee is the appointment of a new national team coach.

KFA dismissed coach Jurgen Klinsmann on the 16th. Afterwards, Jeong Hae-seong was appointed as the new Chairman of the Power Strengthening Committee, a new Power Strengthening Committee was formed, and the process of appointing a new commander began.

After completing the first meeting on the 21st, the Power Strengthening Committee was scheduled to appoint an official coach starting from the two-game series of the 2026 North and Central America World Cup 2nd qualifying round against Thailand, which will be held on March 21st (home) and 26th (away).

Chairman Jeong Hae-seong said, “Not only leaders who do not currently have a team, but also leaders who have participated in the K-League can be nominated. “If it is decided to be a leader in the K-League, the association will ask the club for help,” he said, putting emphasis on appointing a domestic manager.

However, as a result of the second meeting on the 24th, the opinion was changed to entrust the baton to an interim manager and then appoint a formal manager with time to spare.

After the first meeting of the Power Strengthening Committee, the decision was changed as public opinion strongly criticized KFA for hastily trying to appoint an official manager.

The third meeting to be held today will be held privately, like the second meeting, and a briefing will be held if a final decision is made. The interim director for March is also expected to be revealed through the briefing.

Park Hang-seo, former Vietnam national team coach

Currently, coach Hwang Seon-hong and coach Park Hang-seo are being discussed as candidates for the temporary head coach.

Coach Hwang Seon-hong boasts a wealth of experience as a player and coach. In addition, when they won the gold medal at last year's Hangzhou Asian Games, some of the members were part of the A team, so Coach Hwang has the advantage of being able to communicate easily.

The problem is that coach Hwang Seon-hong is currently preparing for the final qualifying round for the 2024 Paris Olympics, which will be held in Qatar starting in April. Because he previously experienced difficulties leading the Olympic and Asian Games national teams at the same time, taking charge of the A national team on the important road to the Olympic finals may be burdensome. Additionally, the Olympic team plans to use the March A-match period to convene the team, so various coordinations are needed.

Coach Park Hang-seo, who is mentioned as another candidate, is being pointed out as a weakness in that he spent more than a year as an outsider after stepping down as coach of the Vietnam national team in January of last year.

However, he has extensive experience as a leader and is receiving high marks for having proven his leadership skills over five years in Vietnam. Additionally, he is well-versed in Vietnam's rivalry, Thailand, and is considered suitable to serve as interim coach in March.

According to an official close to coach Park Hang-seo, it is known that coach Park Hang-seo is positively considering the position of interim coach for a short period of time. 성인웹툰
