Chang Woe-Ryong (Korean: 장외룡; born April 5, 1959) is a South Korean football coach and a former international player who represented his country in the 1980 AFC Asian Cup.

Playing career

Chang Woe-Ryong started his career as an amateur footballer for Yonsei University and was deemed good enough to represent his country in the 1980 AFC Asian Cup where he was part of the team that came runners-up to Kuwait.[1] In 1982 Chang would officially start his semi-professional football career when he joined Daewoo Royals and became one of the first South Korean players in the new professionalized 1983 K League. By the following season the club had become a fully professional unit and Chang would show himself to be an assured left-back as the club won the 1984 K League title.[2] The following seasons would then see Daewoo Royals as one of the dominating teams within the league, which saw Chang gain a 1985 AFC Champions League medal and another league title before he had to retire through injury.[3] By 1989 Chang had already moved into coaching until Japanese football club Tosu Futures briefly brought him out of retirement as a player-coach.

Coaching career

He was confirmed as permanent manager of Incheon United in January 2005, after taking over as caretaker manager in September 2004 following the resignation of Werner Lorant. Chang spent the whole of 2007 studying in England, and Park Lee-Chun took temporary charge of Incheon United for the year.

Chang returned to take charge of Incheon United prior to the start of the 2008 season.

On 10 December 2008, J. League club Omiya Ardija announced they signed a contract with Chang as head coach until 2010.[4]
