Who is Moreno, who has been asked to be the head coach of the national soccer team? Former Spanish national team and Barça coach

Attention is focused on coach Roberto Moreno (45), who has been aspired to coach the Korean national soccer team to replace Paulo Bento (54).

On the 11th (local time), Spanish sports media Ars reported, “This month, coach Moreno is attracting attention from Ecuador and Korea, who are looking for a head coach after the World Cup in Qatar.”

The media said, “The two countries put former coach Moreno on the radar as a candidate to lead a new project after the World Cup, which ended with the resignation of Gustavo Alfa and former coach Paulo Bento.”  안전놀이터

However, the media did not report the contents, such as whether the Korea Football Association officially proposed to coach Moreno, and did not disclose how they contacted him.

Currently, the head coach of the Korea Football Association, Michael Wheeler, is proceeding with the selection of the coach of the national soccer team in private.

Coach Moreno is a former Spanish soccer player and has 20 years of coaching experience since starting youth coaching in 2002. When he was a soccer player, he played the center back position.

Moreno, who has been in charge of youth coaching for nine years since then, began coaching the European adult national team in 2011, starting with the position of head coach of AS Roma, a Serie A league team. 

He has experience in coaching world-class players such as Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Neymar while holding the helm of FC Barcelona in La Liga, the first division of Spanish professional football, from 2014 to 17.

In 2018, he was appointed head coach of the Spanish national team and his leadership was recognized by leading Spain to the finals at ‘Yoo U 2020’.

Afterwards, he took charge of AS Monaco FC in 2020 and Granata CF in 2021-22, but was eventually hardened due to poor results.
