Korea still seeking coach after Houllier says no

SEOUL, Dec 6 (Reuters) - South Korea's search for a new head coach took another twist on Thursday after Gerard Houllier turned down the job.

The Korea Football Association (KFA) had said it was a straight choice between Houllier and Irishman Mick McCarthy to replace Dutchman Pim Verbeek as coach of the Asian powerhouse.

However, Wolverhampton Wanderers boss McCarthy rejected the KFA's approach on Wednesday and a deal to bring Frenchman Houllier to Seoul collapsed at the last minute.

'The negotiations broke off after we got to the final signing stage,' KFA spokesman You Young-cheul said by telephone.

'Houllier had agreed on the deal but the French football association and his family were against it.'

You said the KFA had prepared other options for such an eventuality and that a new head coach could still be named before the end of the week.
