South Korean Media: Refuse Indonesia, Shin Tae Yong join the newly-relegated Chinese club because of MONEY?

Instead of signing a contract with PSSI, coach Shin Tae Yong will likely work in Chinese League One.

According to the South Korean newspaper Sports Chosun, yesterday Shin Tae Yong met Shenzhen FC officials. Two sides exchanged their arguments about the new work of the former manager of the South Korea national football team.

As a result, Shin Tae Yong would replace Roberto Donadoni to become the head coach of the club. In 2019, the Italian manager could not guide Shenzhen FC to stay in the Chinese Super League.

They were one of two teams relegated to Chinese League One after winning just four games in a season.

In the case of Shin Tae Yong, coaching a second-league club in China is a backward step in his career, especially after he used to conquer AFC Champions League.

Besides that, with the performance of the South Korea team in the 2018 World Cup, Shin Tae Yong could choose to work with a much better club than Shenzhen FC.

It seemed that the Chinese club paid a huge amount of money for the South Korean coach to convince him. In the South Korea team, the salary of Shin Tae Yong was about 1.2 million USD a year.

So far Shenzhen FC gave him a two-year contract that gave Shin Tae Yong 3 million USD each season. It would be much higher than working as the head coach of the Indonesia team.

PSSI said that he wanted to work with the South Korean coach, but they were not ready to pay more than 1 million USD a year.
