After finishing runner-up in the AFC (Asian Football Confederation) India Women’s Asian Cup in February last year, Bell succeeded in renewing her contract until the Australia-New Zealand Women’s World Cup to be held in July, and will be with the women’s national team for about four years.
Coach Bell, who has been in charge of her team for a long time, has worked hard to improve the Korean national team’s physical strength. She consistently demanded strong pressure and sprint from her players, and demanded a quick switch to attack while actively defending.
In order not to lose competitiveness with countries that boast strong physical strength in Europe and North America, they constantly tested players through several evaluation matches with the United States, Canada, and New Zealand.
The keynote of coach Bell, who has achieved results with one philosophy, is similar to that of Paulo Bento, coach of the men’s national team.
Coach Bento, who was appointed as the head coach of the men’s national team in August 2018, pursued active soccer and at the same time pursued aggressive soccer based on high possession.
After going through twists and turns, Bentuho’s philosophy was deeply rooted in the team, and with the trust of the players, Bentuho made a dramatic advance to the round of 16 at the 2022 Qatar World Cup, giving another impression to the people.
Moreover, as much as Bento’s performance at the World Cup stage, the performance of the men’s national team can act as a burden or motivation for coach Bell, who is about to open the Women’s World Cup right away.
Director Bell is also a manager with his own philosophy. He once again mentioned ‘active football’, which he had consistently emphasized.
Coach Bell said, “The great principle is to always play active football and win. The thing to consider is to determine who has the available resources and manage and run the game.” We have to approach and deal with it preemptively. To this end, we need to be a little more tactically flexible. No matter what situation we face, we must keep our philosophy well, and we must continue to be flexible at the same time.”
However, coach Bell said firmly that Bento’s performance did not act as motivation or pressure. First of all, he said, “Coach Bento has done a really great job. It’s something to be respected.” said.
