Cambodia dreams of becoming a soccer powerhouse, but it is not easy. They were eliminated early after losing to Pakistan in the first round of the 2026 FIFA North and Central America World Cup. Naturally, Felix Dalmas, who is taking the lead in place of Keisuke Honda, is receiving a lot of criticism.
There were also rumors that the Cambodian Football Association could fire coach Dalmas and appoint a new captain. The main character is director Park Hang-seo. In fact, coach Park Hang-seo has tremendous recognition and standing in Southeast Asian soccer. Since taking office in Vietnam in 2018, he has led the team to win the AFF Championship once and win the SEA Games gold medal twice.
In addition, he led Vietnam to advance to the third qualifying round for the first time in history at the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup. In fact, the situation is not as good as before after coach Park Hang-seo resigned from Vietnam in January 2023. Director Park Hang-seo’s stock price is rising day by day.
This led to rumors of the appointment of Cambodian coach Park Hang-seo. However, this rumor was not true. The Tao 247 explained, “Cambodia also considered replacing the coach. However, Keo Sares, secretary-general of the Cambodian Football Federation, directly denied the rumors of Park Hang-seo’s appointment as coach.”
The Tao 247 said, “Coach Park Hang-seo has not yet accepted an offer from any team since leaving Vietnam. Recently, Coach Park Hang-seo still has regrets about being a coach, but working in Korea is his priority now,” and expects that he will not easily move to another Southeast Asian country. did.
