Talks between the Korea Football Association and former Dutch national team coach Bert van Marwijk have broken down.

South Korea have been looking for a highly rated manager to fill the position left vacant by Hong Myung-bo. He left the role after a poor performance in the World Cup in Brazil this summer.

A South Korean committee had focused their attention on three foreign coaches, among them Bert van Marwijk, who as coach of the Netherlands led the team to the final of the 2010 World Cup, which they eventually lost to Spain.
