VOV.VN - Coach Park Hang-seo has confirmed that he will succeed Shin Tae-yong to lead the national team of Indonesia after he terminates his contract with the Vietnam Football Federation.

Park also said he has yet to draw up any plan to return to the Republic of Korea, his home country, for a coaching career after he bids farewell to the national team of Vietnam in January 2023.

He said he can lend a helping hand to the Korean football at any time, but it’s not the right time to return to the RoK.
