Bento’s record, World Cup’s ‘No. 1 coach to leave’… Who is No. 2?

Coach Paulo Bento left his name in the history of the International Football Federation (FIFA).

With the final held in Doha, Qatar on the 19th (Korean time), all schedules for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar have come to an end. Of the 32 participating teams, Argentina and France were the last to compete for the title. As a result, Argentina won its third title in its career.

Prior to the Qatar World Cup, several new systems were introduced. One of them is ‘expanding card application’. In 2019 after the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the International Football Council (IFAB) established a new rule allowing card penalties to managers and coaches to reduce harsh protests against referees.

It has been applied to professional leagues in each country for the past three years, and an example of this regulation could be seen at the Qatar World Cup. 스포츠토토 The first departure from the coaching staff at the World Cup was taken by coach Bento of the Korean national soccer team. Coach Bento was sent off directly after protesting to referee Anthony Taylor immediately after the game against Ghana in the second round of the Group H group stage.

After the World Cup, defender Kim Jin-soo appeared on the radio and said, “Actually, I didn’t know why the coach was angry at the stadium. Of course he’s upset, but I’ve never seen him do that (he protested harshly). Later, I found out that there was a reason for everything.” It is an analysis that when the player (Kim Young-kwon) was likely to receive a card, coach Bento sacrificed himself to receive the card on purpose.

Coach Bento could not sit on the bench against Portugal in the third game due to the aftermath of the suspension against Ghana. In Game 3, assistant coach Sergio Costa led the team from the bench. Coach Bento had to watch the game from the VIP seat. Korea was able to advance to the round of 16 with a dramatic victory over Portugal.

There is one more coach besides coach Bento who was sent off during the Qatar World Cup. Mario Mandzukic (36), who played a big role as a tall striker until recently, participated in the World Cup in Qatar as a coach for Croatia after his retirement, but was sent off. Mandzukic was ordered off by the referee in the first half of the Croatia-Argentina semi-final.

At the time, the score was 0-0, but when Croatia conceded a penalty, coach Mandzukic protested to the referee and received a red card. Because of this, coach Mandzukichi missed the 3rd and 4th place matches. Instead, right after Croatia won the 3rd and 4th place matches, they came down to the ground and enjoyed the awards ceremony together.
