What will coach Jurgen Klinsmann (59), who is leading the Korean national soccer team, say after returning to Korea?
The Korea Football Association announced on the 13th
The Korean national soccer team is scheduled to return to Korea through Incheon International Airport Terminal 2 on the 14th,” and added, “When returning to Korea, an interview with Coach Klinsmann will be held at the arrival hall.”
After completing two international matches in September
Coach Klinsmann initially had no intention of returning to Korea right away.
Coach Klinsmann, who was scheduled to watch the Bayern Munich game in person this week
was scheduled to return home after meeting with officials and conducting analysis in Europe with the European coaching staff ahead of the international match in October.
But suddenly the schedule changed.
The Korea Football Association explained
We changed the schedule at the coaching staff meeting today to begin the work of confirming K-League players before announcing the list in October
Director Klinsmann is a director who has steadfastly pursued his overseas stay despite the worst public opinion.
But why did he suddenly decide to bend his will and return home? This is why interest is focused on Director Klinsmann’s mouth. 고스톱사이트
Coach Klinsmann was controversial even before his appointment. He was a director who even destroyed the power strengthening committee system that the association had created. This was especially true because it was known that although Coach Klinsmann was in the list of candidates for director
he was not the top negotiation target.
At the same time, Director Klinsmann’s negligent work attitude, which has been in the spotlight in the past, has been pointed out even before his appointment.
His irresponsible behavior during his time as coach of the German national soccer team as well as during his resignation as coach of Hertha Berlin (BSC) raised concerns.
However, Coach Klinsmann seemed to dispel this information through his first press conference after taking office as the Korean national team.
Above all, he seemed to calm the public opinion that was negative about his appointment as coach by making a firm promise to stay in Korea.
In April, there was even news that he had set up a house in Seoul.
However, the problem that seemed like it would end in nothingness became a reality. Coach Klinsmann gradually became distant from Korea starting in July.
Director Klinsmann, who returned home after a vacation in the United States
headed back to the United States where his family was in August to celebrate his birthday.
Since then, he has stopped visiting Korea.
Director Klinsmann stayed in Korea for only 67 days. In the seven months since his appointment, he has spent more than half of his time abroad.
Moreover, Coach Klinsmann seemed to have forgotten that coaching the Korean national team was his main job and was more active in his side jobs, such as interviewing foreign media and being an analyst.
He didn’t have good grades either.
Klinsmann, who had recorded 2 draws and 2 losses until June, also drew 0-0 in the first friendly match against Wales in September, becoming the worst coach of the Korean national team.
This is because among all national team coaches since 2000, no coach has not won until 5 games.
The results were the results, but the content was more problematic. He was getting worse and worse.
He made even experts shake their heads with his inefficient use that did not suit the player’s position and characteristics.
He also continued to use monotonous attacks without any detailed tactics.
Director Klinsmann actually refused to reside in Korea in an interview with Korean reporters in the UK.
At the same time, he made it clear that he would not even watch the K League, and even made a threatening or dismissive statement, saying, “If you don’t like it, just find another coach.
It doesn’t matter.”
This was a complete reversal of his statement at the time of his appointment that he would “spend most of his time in Korea.”
At the same time, public opinion was further aggravated by remarks that ignored the K-League, the foundation of Korean soccer.
Fortunately, Klinsmann avoided the worst by winning 1-0 in a friendly match against Saudi Arabia on the 13th, which was his 6th match.
However, against Saudi Arabia, whose performance was relatively poor, one goal seemed insufficient. Public opinion also shows no signs of abating at all.
Coach Klinsmann’s actions are being compared to former coach Paulo Bento.
Coach Bento also received a lot of criticism early in his tenure. His arbitrary selection of players was the main reason.
However, Coach Bento continued to observe the K-League through his residency in Korea and gradually changed public opinion with his own tactics and colors.
It was completely opposite to that of Director Klinsmann.
In the end, Coach Bento led Korea to the round of 16 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Although he left because he could not agree on a contract renewal with the association, he led the Korean national team for four years and four months, leaving a mark as Korea’s longest-serving coach in a single term.
Coach Bento’s next choice was the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which could become Korea’s rival. Coincidentally, he made his debut against Costa Rica an hour and a half before the Saudi game.
Costa Rica is a strong team that beat Saudi Arabia 3-1.
However, ‘Bentuho’ UAE caused a stir by defeating Costa Rica 4-1 in the first game.
Although the UAE was only ranked 72nd in the FIFA rankings, it defeated Costa Rica, ranked 46th.
The UAE will participate in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, which will be held in Qatar from January to February next year.
They are in Group C with Iran, Palestine, and Hong Kong, but may face South Korea in the tournament.
This means that it could become an obstacle for Klinsmann, who is aiming for his first championship in 64 years.
Coach Klinsmann, who can’t help but be compared to Coach Bento in many ways, returns to Korea after a long time.
What will Coach Klinsmann say in front of his fans? Attention is focused on Director Klinsmann’s mouth.
