Seems that the famous South Korean coach Kim Sang Ryul has decided not to accept the offer made by NSC, on behalf of MHF.

Initially a NSC officer went to Bangkok to negotiate terms with Kim and the deal was almost done. But the Korean made some demands that NSC could not say yes to as those matters came under the purview of MHF.

Another delegation was then sent to meet the Korean and this time it seems even Kim's coaching certification was being questioned and that irked the Korean. So a little bird tells me the deal is now off.

Wonder what the NSC DG has to say about this since he was certain the Kim will come. But more importantly who will coach the team now given the fact that the Azlan Shah is in April, Asia Cup in May, Champions Challenge II in July and World Cup Qualifiers in October...
