At the meeting convened the day before by the National Team Power Strengthening Committee, the association’s advisory body for the management of the national team, which recommended replacement of coach the previous day, executives decided to part ways with coach Klinsmann and notified them.

The national soccer team has been experiencing aftereffects since mid-last month after being eliminated in the semifinals of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup held in Qatar.

Director Klinsmann was criticized at the center of it all.

In the end, he left the Korean national team before completing one year after taking office at the end of February last year.

Even before taking office, Coach Klinsmann was met with concern.

Although he was a world-class star as a player, his evaluation as a leader was mixed.

Even after his inauguration, he continued to be criticized for his lack of tactical capabilities and frequent stays abroad.

The Asian Cup was a decisive stage that revealed Coach Klinsmann’s qualities.

Despite being evaluated as having ‘an all-time power’ led by Son Heung-min (Tottenham), the national team was only eliminated in the semifinals of the Asian Cup.

In the semifinals against Jordan, which they met for the second time during the tournament following the group stage, the Korean national team lost after a poor performance with ‘0 effective shots’.

In particular, public anger grew as coach Klinsmann, who returned to Korea on the 8th after the tournament, left for the United States, his residence, two days later.

Addition, it was revealed late that there was infighting between players centered on Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), and even the team management ability was not evaluated well.

It is known that Coach Klinsmann attended the Strengthening Committee’s meeting via video conference and disagreed with the criticism of the ‘lack of tactics’ and protested that the discord among the players affected the results of the semifinals.
