Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors boss sets new record

Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors boss Choi Kang-hee set a new record for the most career wins by a head coach in South Korean football following his team's 2-0 victory over Gangwon FC last week.

The record continued then when they beat Bluewings over the weekend and the side does not look like letting up anytime soon, the boss now has 212 wins in the K League 1.

The record was held previously by the former Ulsan Hyundai head coach Kim Jung-nam. The 58-year-old now has 212 wins, 107 draws and 98 losses in the K League.

The Jeonbuk head coach is already one of the most decorated coaches in K League history. As since taking over at Jeonbuk in 2005, he's managed five K League 1 title, the most of any coach, in addition to one FA Cup and two AFC Champions League titles.

The record now looks to be his for a long time as the former FC Seoul boss Hwang Sun-hong is next behind him with 162 wins.
