Former Korean national football team coach Paulo Bento has emerged as a candidate for the new coach of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) national team.

Portuguese media Hekord reported on the 8th (Korean time), “Former Korean national team coach Bento is negotiating over the UAE coach position.”메이저사이트

If former coach Bento takes over as UAE coach, he will meet Korea as an enemy in the Asian regional qualifiers for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup and the 2026 International Football Federation (FIFA) North and Central America World Cup, which will open early next year.

The UAE appointed Rodolfo Aruabarena, an Argentinian coach, in February, but since then, it has been sluggish with 4 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses in 14 matches.

Former coach Bento, who took the lead in Korea in August 2018, led the Taegeuk Warriors for 4 years and 4 months, advancing to the round of 16 for the first time in 12 years at the 2022 Qatar World Cup last year.

Afterwards, he refused to renew the contract with the Korea Football Association and returned to his home country, Portugal, and took a break to prepare for his next move.
