Shin was appointed in July 2017 following the dismissal of Uli Stielike and led Korea Republic through a difficult campaign to qualify for a tenth World Cup. A former midfielder for the Taeguk Warriors, he had previously coached the national U-20 team and won the AFC Champions League with Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma in 2010.
Now heading for his third FIFA World Cup, Korea Republic captain Ki has arguably become the nation’s most recognisable footballer. A technically gifted midfielder blessed in all aspects of the game, the Swansea City player has now spent six seasons in the English Premier League.
