Korea Republic sack Uli Stielike

The announcement was made by South Korea's football association and it came two days after a 3-2 loss in Qatar in the Asian qualifying tournament for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, reports Xinhua news agency. Stielike's contract was supposed to run until Korea's elimination at some stage during the upcoming World Cup, assuming it qualified. "Stielike said that he respects any decision reached by the technical committee", he added. "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.

"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. "But results in qualification for the World Cup have not been what we wanted".

Stielike's successor is likely to be a Korean. During his 33-month reign, the former Real Madrid midfielder chalked up a record 27 wins as well as five draws and seven defeats.

Stielike was brought in and restored some pride when he led the side at the 2015 Asian Cup, where his team reached the final without conceding a goal before losing to hosts Australia.

South Korean media have already rolled out possible names for the next head coach, such as Huh Jung-moo, who previously led South Korea to the round of 16 at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and Shin Tae-yong, who recently managed South Korea at the U-20 World Cup at home.

But trouble set in during Asia's final round of World Cup qualifiers, especially when they lost 0-1 to China in March - only their second loss to the Chinese in 32 games. The team is now ranked second in Group A with four wins, one tie and three losses, at 13 points. South Korea, chasing their ninth consecutive World Cup appearance, will host already-qualified Iran on August 31 and face Uzbekistan in Tashkent on September 5 to close out the qualifying stage.
