South Korea football coach Shin Tae-yong said he would be willing to accept Guus Hiddink’s offer to help the men’s national team.
“If Hiddink is willing to help South Korea without any personal greed, I want to accept his offer,” Shin said during a press conference announcing his 23-man squad for the friendly matches in October, as quoted by Yonhap News.
“If he gives help, I want to join him and develop South Korean football.”
Hiddink, who led South Korea to the 2002 FIFA World Cup semifinals, told reporters in Amsterdam on 14 September that he was willing to help the national team at the 2018 World Cup if the Korea Football Association (KFA) wanted him.
The KFA is expected to discuss Hiddink’s possible role for the national team at its technical committee meeting.
Shin said before there were talks of Hiddink, he and the technical committee had discussed hiring an experienced assistant coach
