Men’s U-19 squad calls up head coach Kim Jung-sooKim Jung-soo, former head coach of the Korean men’s U-17 football team, will take the helm of the men’s U-19 squad.
The Korea Football Association (KFA) announced that Kim, 44, will be the new head coach of the U-19 team. Kim is replacing Chung Jung-yong, who left the national youth program to coach the K League 2 club Seoul E-Land FC.

He was the top assistant when Korea reached the round of 16 at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup. He was the head coach at this year’s U-17 World Cup in Brazil, where Korea reached the quarterfinals. It was the deepest run by the country at this youth tournament.
