Ji-Sung Park not slowed down

It’s been almost one year since Ji-Sung Park announced his retirement from playing competitive football but the player hailing from South Korea has not slowed down in any way as he has a number of projects which keep him busy even if that is outside of the playing grounds.

The South Korean man was named as the official ambassador of Manchester United on October of 2014 as he will be working alongside Sir.Bobby Charlton and Bryan Robson. He also played an important role in an event that involved having children from local schools in Seoul being given a lifetime VIP trip to Old Trafford.

Uli Stielike wants Team to have New Options

South Korea’s coach Uli Stielike says that he wants the team to have new options going into the match against Uzbekistan in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

After having been appointed as the national team’s new coach just after a disappointing World Cup 2014,Uli Stielike managed to guide the team to the brink of the AFC Championship. Host nation Australia managed to defeat South Korea 2-1 in the final, but that aside, the team has been brilliant. This gives South Korea a lot of hope going into the World Cup 2018 qualifiers, which has just begun in the Asian region.

South Korea entered in Semi Finals of Asian Cup

South Korea has entered the semi-finals of the Asian Cup thanks to two goals which was scored by the 22 year old attacker Son Heung-Min after the team of UliStielike defeated Uzbekistan in the quarter-finals match which was played at the AAMI Park in Australia.

Uzbekistan almost managed to score an early goal after OdilAhmedov delivered a cross over to his teammate LutfullaTuraev who just wasn’t able to connect with the ball as he failed to reach the ball.

Fernando Torres happily moved to San Siro

Fernando Torres has made it clear that nobody forced him to go to San Siro. He made that call himself.

There have been talks that Jose Mourinho, the manager of Torres’ parent club Chelsea, forcefully placed the Spanish striker on loan to Milan.

As per Torres, Mourinho has never treated him rudely. His relationship with the Portuguese manager is quite fine.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, “Jose’s behaviour towards me has been good. I don’t have any complains. As far as me moving to Milan is concerned, it was my own decision. I wasn’t forced.”

Stielike thinks they can beat Costa Rica

South Korea might have been 48 positions below Costa Rica in the FIFA World rankings, but, Uli Stielike, the man who has recently taken charge of the team, believes that the Asian giants have every chance of emerging victorious in the friendly game against the Central Americans.
That game is going to be played next week in the capital city of Seoul.
Stielike’s tenure as the South Korea boss has already started on a winning note. In his first game in charge a couple of nights back against Paraguay, his team won by a margin of 2 goals.

Myung-Bo Disappointed In National Team

The manager of South Korea national football team, Hong Myung-bo, is not happy with the performance of his back line in the game against Algeria.

South Korea lost that game by a profound margin of 2-4 and they are now finding themselves very close to getting eliminated from the tournament. They have one more group game left i.e. against Belgium and even if they win that match; there is no guarantee of them advancing to the knockouts.

South Korea In Tough World Cup Group

South Korea have been given a tough draw at the upcoming World Cup after being grouped along with Kuwait, Oman, and Australia in the group stages. Australia have been put as the favourites to win the competition early on. South Korea’s manager Hong Myung-Bo has agreed that this is indeed a very tough draw for his team. Even though South Korea has managed to reach the finals of major tournaments in recent years, he says that this will be a tough test since they have to deal with a giant like Australia in the group stages itself.

LAST CHANCE

South Korea will play their last friendly match before the start of the 2014 World Cup on May 28 as they play against Tunisia in Seoul and then will be leaving for the final training days in Florida only 2 days later.

The head coach of the team Hong Myung-Bo revealed that he plans on making his choices on who will be getting into the team before heading to Florida for the final round of overseas training.

PARK RETURN?

Former South Korean international Park Ji sung has said that he has no chance of being in the World Cup 2014 despite rumours that he could be persuaded by the South Korean manager to come out of retirement.

Park Ji sung has been one of the best players for the national team for the last decade, but he has recently been on the decline. After leaving Manchester United a few years ago, he has now returned to Dutch football after a poor spell at QPR. He is now back at club PSV Eindhoven where he made his name.
