Despite what was reported in the national press and on K League United, Daejeon Citizen are yet to appoint a new first team manager.

It was suggested that former Suwon Bluewings winger Lee Kibeom, whom had enjoyed a working relationship with Kim Ho as part of Yongin Football Centre's affiliation with Shingal High School, had been named as their new boss.

However, new CEO Kim Ho, a former Daejeon Citizen manager himself, revealed that the search is still on going and that Lee is to become Citizen's reserve or youth team coach instead.

Whilst addressing local dignitaries, Kim Ho was asked about the season ahead:

"We are still in the midst of solving this issue [of a new manager] and the search isn't just limited to domestic-based coaches. We have been searching far and wide into foreign markets but we are in a situation that requires more time."

It had been suggest that a former player of Kim from his time managing Suwon Bluewings could be in line for the job.

Daejeon Citizen had played Kim Jonghyun in temporary charge following the departure of Lee Youngik who stepped down at the end of August but isn't considered to be in the running for the job on a permanent basis.
