Playing careerEdit

He earned the nickname "Fox of the Ground" by clearly distinguishing when passing and dribbling with sensual and intelligent play.[1] As a player, he was an attacking midfielder and mainly played in the middle offensive position.

After graduating Yeungnam University, Shin played 12 seasons for Ilhwa Chunma. He won the K League Young Player of the Year Award in 1992, the first year of his professional career.[1] He was a key player for Ilhwa Chunma when they won the K League for three consecutive years from 1993 to 1995.[1] Especially in 1995, he became the Most Valuable Player of the K League, and also won the Asian Club Championship in the end of the year.[1] Afterward, Ilhwa Chunma had faltered for a while, but they succeeded in conquering the league again under Shin's contribution. They once again won the league for three consecutive years from 2001 to 2003, and he also won his second MVP Award in 2001.[1] He scored 99 goals, and provided 68 assists in 401 K League games including the Korean League Cup.[1] He could become a one-club man of Ilhwa Chunma, but he finished his playing career in an Australian club, Queensland Roar.[1] He is regarded as one of the greatest K League players of all time, and was selected for the K League 30th Anniversary Best XI in 2013.[2]

Drafted by the Queensland Roar in the Australian A-League in 2005, he retired due to an ankle problem.[1] He accepted an assistant coaching role at the club, assisting Miron Bleiberg primarily with technical skills.[3]

He played 23 international matches including the 1996 AFC Asian Cup for the South Korea national team.[4]

Managerial careerEdit

Seongnam Ilhwa ChunmaEdit

In 2009, Shin managed Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma as the caretaker manager, and finished the 2009 K League and the 2009 Korean FA Cup as runner-up though the club suffered from a lack of funds.[5] He was promoted to the regular manager the next year, winning the 2010 AFC Champions League and the 2011 Korean FA Cup.[5] He became the first manager to win the AFC Champions League as a player and a manager. After watching his achievements, Unification Church, owner of the club, funded the transfer window to support him before the start of the 2012 season.[5] However, his results were poor this time, and the mood of Seongnam was changed due to the founder of the Unification Church Moon Sun-myung's death in the middle of the season.[5] He eventually resigned from Seongnam after finishing the season.[5]

South KoreaEdit

In August 2014, he became the assistant coach of the South Korea national team. Under Shin, South Korea reached the final of the AFC Asian Cup for the first time in 27 years.[6] The South Korea's manager at that time was Uli Stielike, but actual managerial role was performed by Shin, who took charge of the tactics and training of the team.[7]

Shin also managed the South Korea under-23 team at the same time,[8] and participated in the 2016 Summer Olympics. South Korea became the winners of the group by acquiring 7 points against Germany, Mexico, and Fiji, but they were elimininated by Honduras in the quarter-finals.[9]

On 22 November 2016, Shin was appointed manager of the South Korea under-20 team to prepare the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup, hosted by his country. Therefore, he left the senior team to concentrate on the under-20 team. At the U-20 World Cup, South Korea finished second in the group stage with 6 points, advancing to the knockout stage, but they lost to Portugal in the round of 16.

After Shin left the South Korean senior team, Stielike made poor results in qualifiers of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and was eventually fired by the Korea Football Association. On 4 July 2017, Shin became the manager of the senior team to replace former manager Stielike.[10] In December, he led the South Korea and won the 2017 EAFF E-1 Football Championship. Despite two goalless draws, the South Korea under Shin also obtained qualification to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. In the 2018 World Cup, South Koreans played against Sweden, Mexico and Germany. South Korea lost 0–1 to Sweden in their first game and 1–2 to Mexico in their second game. In this final match South Koreans beating Germany 2–0 and eliminated the Germans from the group stage for the first time in 80 years, and the first time a Germany side lost two games in a World Cup group stage, though they had failed to advance to the round of 16.

IndonesiaEdit

On 28 December 2019, Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI) confirmed the appointment of Shin as the Indonesia's manager, replacing Simon McMenemy and handed 4 years contract by the Indonesian federation.[11]

Personal lifeEdit

On 19 March 2021, Shin was declared COVID-19 positive when he was in Indonesia.[12]
