South Korea sack Uli Stielike after defeat against Qatar

South Korea axed coach Uli Stielike yesterday after a shock defeat by Qatar left their chances of qualifying for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation hanging in the balance.

South Korea have been regular qualifiers even if they have a modest record at the finals themselves. "And we notified Stielike about this before the press conference and he accepted the decision". "The reason that we will likely select a South Korean coach is because there is too little time for a new foreign coach to understand the characteristics of each player", Lee told reporters after the meeting. "But results in qualification for the World Cup have not been what we wanted".

"I think every national football team head coach is an expert, and one year would be enough to build the team for the 2018 World Cup", he said.

Tottenham striker Son Heung-Min underwent successful surgery on his broken right arm on Friday and will take about a month to recover, the Korean Football Association said.

Stielike, 62, was appointed in September 2014 on a four-year contract, after South Korea had been pelted with toffees, a Korean insult, when they returned winless from the World Cup in Brazil.

But trouble set in during Asia's final round of World Cup qualifiers, especially when they went down 1-0 to China in March-only their second loss to the Chinese in 32 games.

South Korea host already-qualified Iran in their penultimate qualifier in late August before a trip to Uzbekistan in the final round of matches in early September. With two final qualification matches remaining, Korea will have to find a new head coach to help it qualify for its ninth entry into the FIFA World Cup. South Korea play Iran and then Uzbekistan in their final two games.

They got over that disappointment quickly and were unbeaten in the second round of qualifying for World Cup 2018, but they have struggled for consistency in the final section, losing three of their last five matches.
