Paulo Bento Resigns As South Korea Boss


Paulo Bento has confirmed that he will leave his post as South Korea manager after losing 4-1 to Brazil in the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup on Monday.

The Selecao raced into a four-goal lead against an overawed South Korea side, who had fought so brilliantly to book their place in the knockout stages last week after beating Portugal in stoppage time.

But Bento has now revealed that his decision to leave after this winter's tournament was one made a while ago and he will remain true to his word.

"I have just announced to the players and the president of the federation that this is a decision I took in September," he said post-match.

"It is set in stone and I have confirmed it. I have to thank everyone for everything they have done.

"From now onwards we have to think about the future. I’m going to rest and we have to see what will happen after I rest."
