According to the Chosun Ilbo: Guss Hiddink, the man who led Korea to the World Cup semifinals, will return to his position as coach of the national team when his contract with Eindhoven ends in 2004. He will be coach for the Athens Olympics that year until the 2006 World Cup in Germany. The Korean Football Association sent Ka Sam-hyun, its international director, to the Netherlands on Sunday to sign the new contract with Hiddink. They announced on Monday that the contract contents had already been negotiated with coach Hiddink beforehand.

He's reached deity status, and could tarnish his reputation with a poor showing. The expectations would remain ridiculously high. But, I'll fully believe this when I see the press release from the KFA. Of course, if the newspaper is lying we should beat them severely for getting our hopes up.
