Football career

Huh played for PSV Eindhoven and Hyundai Horangi as midfielder. Because of his tough and energetic playing style, he was nicknamed as Jindogae, the hunter dog breed originated from his hometown Jindo Island. Huh joined PSV Eindhoven on August 1980.[1] He played until May 1983 for 3 seasons.[2] As one of rare Korean players in Europe in 1980s, he was often compared with Cha Bum-kun who had been playing in Bundesliga of Germany. He was a member of Korean squad in the 1986 FIFA World Cup. In the match against Argentina, he left a famous photo that he appeared to be kicking Maradona whose face twisted with pain. In the match against Italy, he scored 1 goal.

Managerial career

Huh has previously coached the South Korea national football team twice before, as well as running the Pohang Atoms and the Chunnam Dragons. His team won the Korean FA Cup in 2006 and 2007.

His first term as the coach of the national team was temporary. In 1998, he was appointed for the second time. Then he picked up some nameless young players and give them important positions instead of established stars, inviting harsh criticism against him. After failures in the 2000 Summer Olympics and 1998 Asian Games, he was replaced by Guus Hiddink.

Since Hiddink's incredible success in the 2002 FIFA World Cup, Korea Football Association began hiring foreign managers, including Humberto Coelho, Jo Bonfrere, Dick Advocaat, and Pim Verbeek. They failed to match Hiddink's success, however.

Meanwhile, the criticized "nameless players" picked by Huh became stars. Park Ji-sung, once the most unpopular player while Huh was coach, turned into the most successful player in Asia. Lee Young-pyo and Seol Ki-hyeon also rose in prominence. The success of Huh's former apprentices and that of himself in Chunnam Dragons made him revalued as a candidate for head coach. Huh was re-appointed in December 2007 after leading candidates Mick McCarthy and Gérard Houllier both rejected the job.

Huh got the team qualified for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. In November 2009, Huh won the AFC Coach of the Year Award after leading the national team to 27 consecutive games without a loss.
