New national team coach to arrive soon

With the Football Federation of Cambodia accepting the South Korean Football Association’s offer to send A-licensed coach Sejin Yeo as the Kingdom’s next national team head coach, preparations are well underway for his arrival sometime next week. Although no specific date had been announced for his impending arrival, sources indicated Sunday that the Korean coach could be here in time to watch Super 4 playoffs action of the ongoing Metfone C-League. FFC Deputy General Secretary May Tola said the federation had already enlisted the help of a few assistant coaches to identify around 40 “good players” for national team consideration. Metfone C-League coaches were also asked to recommend two or three of their best players for a preparatory camp in the off-season. According to May Tola, 38-year old Sejin Yeo had coached the South Korean women’s A-team as well as Korean men’s clubs.
