Manager José Morais Leaves Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors



Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors manager José Morais has parted ways with the club after deciding not to renew his contract with the side, ending his two-year stint with three pieces of silverware to his name.

José Morais was appointed as manager at the start of the 2019 campaign, replacing former head coach Choi Kang-hee. Having signed a two-year contract at the time, Morais decided to end his successful tenure with the club after Jeonbuk's final match in the 2020 AFC Champions League on December 4th.

Morais took the helm of the already reigning champions and led to them a further two consecutive league titles, helping the club achieve both a record-breaking eighth title and fourth consecutive title in the process.

Furthermore, the manager would go on to help Jeonbuk lift the FA Cup for the first time in fifteen years, helping the side claim their first double trophy in their history.

In Morais' two-year stint, Jeonbuk recorded 51 wins, 21 draws and 13 losses in 85 games, claiming three pieces of silverware. In terms of personal accolades, Morais was also awarded the 2019 K League Manager of the Year award for helping his side win that year's title.


Jeonbuk have applauded the efforts of their first permanent foreign coach, presenting plaques and gifts to the manager who they note overcame difficulties within a strange environment this season to lead the team to success.

"I have had an unforgettable experience as a manager," said José Morais on leaving. "I am grateful for the passion and love the fans have given me. I will cherish the precious ties and memories I have gained from the K League and Jeonbuk Hyundai forever"

Jeonbuk will announce the manager's successor soon, with early rumours from media outlets suggesting than assistant manager Kim Sang-sik may take the helm.
