South Korea sack Uli Stielike after defeat against Qatar

Uli Stielike took over in September of 2014.

South Korea have sacked Uli Stielike as manager in the wake of Tuesday's disappointing 3-2 defeat to Qatar in World Cup Qualifying.

The German Stielike had been at the post since September 2014, when he took over for former boss Hong Myung-bo.

South Korea's best finish in a major competition under Stielike came in 2015, when they reached the Asian Cup final before falling to Australia.

However, Tuesday's loss marked the nation's third in their last five matches, a run of form the 62-year-old could not survive.

South Korea sit second in their AFC qualifying group, seven points behind leaders Iran and one point ahead of third-placed Uzbekistan with two matches left to play.
