Huh leaves South Korea post

Soccernet staff

Huh Jung-Moo has decided not to continue as South Korea coach following the expiry of his contract.

South Korea reached the second round at this summer's World Cup, where they were beaten 2-1, and Huh believes it is time for a change.

"I decided not to seek a second term," Huh said. "It is not a resignation - my contract finishes at the end of June. I want time to recharge myself and spend some time with my family.

"There are many good coaches in our football community. They should be given a chance."

The Korea Football Association has said it intends to find a replacement by July 10.
