Coaches, when they had questionable facial hair and wore short shorts.

Most of the coaches in the World Cup were players themselves, some of them even played in the World Cups of yesteryear. I was just curious what they looked like when they played years ago.

I included everyone there were photos for. I left out Dunga because he's pretty young and well known, there isn't anything particularly remarkable to find.

My first post on LJ ever, so I'm a bit of a noob.

negl, I'd hit it.

Bert van Marwijk (Netherlands)

He looks exactly the same except his hair is whiter and thinner.
In action, on the right:

Fabio Capello (England)

Very liberal use of Brylcreem.

Huh Jung-Moo (South Korea)

He had the honour of kicking Maradona in 1986:

Javier Aguirre (Mexico)

Joachim Löw (Germany

Jogi doesn't want to be reminded of that fuzzy caterpillar on his upper lip. He has exactly the same haircut 25 years later LOL. My mother thinks he looks like Alain Delon; with that moustache, I see it.

Lars Lagerbäck (Sweden)

Still quite nerdy.

Raymond Domenech (France)

Domenech's face was laterally symmetrical.

Marcello Lippi (Italy)

Not really into GILFs, but Lippi in the 70s - hotdamn.

Marcelo Bielsa (Chile)

Morten Olsen (Denmark)

In 2010, with the remnants of his glorious mullet.

Ottmar Hitzfeld (Switzerland)

Otto Rehhagel (Greece)

Paul Le Guen (Cameroon)

Same tense facial expressions, just less hair.

Pim Verbeek (Australia)

I think Pim Verbeek's mullet and 'tache beat Jogi Bear's caterpillar and Douchenech's slug.

Radomir Antić (Serbia)

Ricki Herbert (New Zealand)

Sven-Goran Eriksson (Ivory Coast)

Youngest photo I could find.

Takeshi Okada (Japan)

So azn.

Vicente Del Bosque (Spain)

Looks a bit like Dov Charney on the left. Stuff he's wearing even looks like stuff AA would sell, or are selling lol.
