Turkey coach Terim previously linked to South Korea post

The Korean post was vacant from the end of July 2007 to late December of the same year.

"Last December, before Huh Jung-moo was appointed as national team boss, coach Terim revealed his ambition to take over the South Korean coaching job," a source close to the Korean Football Association (KFA) told Sports Seoul.

"The KFA sometimes receives offers from interested parties but wanted to find the new coach themselves."
