There was a local report that the Korea Football Association, which is looking for the next Korean national team head coach, contacted former Valencia coach Jose Bordalas (58, Spain).
Spanish media ‘As’ and Mundo Deportivo reported on the 18th (local time) that Korea had contacted Bordalas. The media said, “Since Bordalas left Mestaya (Valencia home stadium) last summer, he has been connected to the Spanish Primera Liga and foreign clubs, but no team has officially proposed it.” “The Korea Football Association is known to have contacted him.”
Bordalas started his career in 1980 with Hercules CF, based in Valencia, Spain, and played in lower leagues such as FC Espanyol San Bisante, Benidorm CF, and FC Torrevieja. His position was a forward striker, but he retired at the young age of 28.
Bordalas started coaching in 1993 with the Elicante CF B team. He was subsequently promoted to manager of the A team of Elicante CF, and built his career with teams in the lower leagues of Spain. It wasn’t until 2015 that he started seeing the light as a director. He took over as manager of Debortivo Alaves in 2015, taking the team to La Liga in the first year of his tenure. The following year, Getafe was promoted to the first division. 슬롯사이트
Bordalas developed Getafe into a solid team. In the 2017-2018 season right after promotion, he won 15 wins and finished 8th, and the following season, he finished 5th and won a ticket to the Europa League. Getafe participated in the UEFA Europa League in the 2019-2020 season and advanced to the round of 16. He won the La Liga Manager of the Year award for his achievements in leading Getafe to a sensation.
From May 2021, Lee Kang-in took over as manager of Valencia, where he was playing. In his first season in charge, Bordalas achieved results, including taking the team to the final of the Spanish King’s Cup (Copa del Rey), but was sacked.
Among domestic fans, he is known as the manager who criticized Valencia for transferring Lee Kang-in (Mallorca). He was appointed before Lee Kang-in transferred, but the relationship between the two did not last long as Lee Kang-in left for Mallorca on August 30 of that year. In an interview with the Spanish media in December of last year, he said, “The club ordered the release of Lee Kang-in, a non-EU (European Union) quota player, to recruit Marcos Andre (Brazil).” poured out
