Paulo Bento has stepped down as South Korea manager

He won 35 of his 57 matches in charge, but South Korea suffered a disappointing quarter-final exit at the 2019 Asian Cup and could not upset the odds against Brazil.

Following that defeat, Bento said: “I have just announced to the players and the president of the federation that this is a decision I took in September.

“It is set in stone and I have confirmed it. I have to thank everyone for everything they have done.”

He added: “From now onwards we have to think about the future. I’m going to rest and we have to see what will happen after I rest.

“We have to congratulate Brazil because they were better than us.”
