Incheon United appoint ex-South Korea coach Huh

Former South Korea national team coach Huh Jung-moo has been appointed the new manager of K-League side Incheon United.

Huh, 55, led the Taeguk Warriors to a historic place in the second round of the World Cup in South Africa - the furthest they have ever gone outside their own country - but chose to step down after the tournament.

Incheon will be the third K-League side Huh has coached at having previously been in charge of Pohang Steelers and Chunnam Dragons.

"I'd like to give my sincere appreciation for newly named manager Huh on behalf of the club fans and the Incheon citizens,'' Song Young-gil, the club owner and the mayor of Incheon Metropolitan City said in the Korea Times.

"We hope Huh, who is acknowledged for his great leadership by taking South Korea to an unprecedented World Cup second round this year, will play a crucial part for the team to flourish.''

Huh's first match as Incheon coach will be the home encounter with Busan I'Park on September 4 as he looks to end a five-game losing streak and guide them into the K-League play-offs.
