As part of the agreement, the Bundesliga champions will help develop both players and coaches in South Korea, as well as playing friendly games between youth teams and holding training camps. 

Having already entered into a similar link-up with the Japanese Football Association in May last year, chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is delighted Bayern are continuing to extend their footprint in the continent.

“South Korean football possesses great young talent and is characterised by very good youth development,” Rummenigge said. 

“We’ve seen that ourselves recently with Jeong Woo-yeong, who moved to us a year ago from South Korea and has developed magnificently. We’re therefore proud to enter into this partnership and to support the KFA’s continued progress in the future.”
