Paulo Bento, the Portuguese head coach of South Korea, has resigned as the national team's head coach.

The Portuguese announced this after the match against Brazil in the 1/8 finals of the 2022 World Cup, where the team lost 1-4 and left the group.

"Now we (the coaching staff) have to think about the future, which is unrelated to the South Korean national team. I just informed the players and the (South Korea Football Federation) president about it. This decision was made in September, and I thanked them for everything they did.

I am proud to have been their coach for more than four years. I intend to rest, and then we will see," said Paulo Bento.
