Coach Klinsmann changes European schedule to return home,
“We can achieve good results only if we create a positive atmosphere together.”
“Changing the schedule is not a big problem.”
South Korea national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann said that changing the schedule would not be very difficult.
Coach Klinsmann, who played two consecutive international matches in England, returned to Korea through Incheon International Airport Terminal 2 at 3:55 pm on the 14th. Usually, when the national team returns to their home country, they receive a lot of attention. However, the place where most eyes were directed that day was Coach Klinsmann.
There was turmoil even before his return. In addition to his poor performance, Coach Klinsmann did not faithfully fulfill the condition of ‘residing in Korea’. As there was controversy over ‘working from home’ in the past, the Football Association also announced the appointment of coach Klinsmann and explained, “It was a condition of the contract that he reside in Korea during his tenure.”
Coach Klinsmann also said at his inauguration press conference, “I plan to spend most of my time in Korea,” and “Coaches based in Europe plan to perform overseas watching duties in their respective countries.”
However, Director Klinsmann reversed his statement. He stayed more in the United States and Europe than in Korea. He entrusted the observation of K League players to Korean coaches. Through ‘ESPN’ in the US, he said, “Going to Europe and talking to many people and then returning to Korea is the only way to grow the national team. If you don’t like that, just find someone else.”
It was the same this time too. Initially, Coach Klinsmann was scheduled to go to Germany after the Saudi Arabia game. The reason is European observation. On the 16th (Korean time), he wanted to watch the match between Bayern Munich and Leverkusen, where Kim Min-jae belongs.
When this fact became known, public opinion worsened and fans became excited. Then the association persuaded Director Klinsmann. The association said a day ago, “Coach Klinsmann was scheduled to watch the Munich game and visit a European club to meet with officials and analyze the game with the coaches,” adding, “However, it has been changed to begin the work of checking K-League players first before announcing the list in October.” “I did it,” he said.
That’s how Director Klinsmann appeared in Korea that day. When asked about the reason for the change in schedule, he said, “I came because I heard that many people were waiting for me,” and admitted that he came unwillingly due to public opinion. He added, “I thought again because I heard that the association usually brings in a coach after an overseas away game.”먹튀검증
In fact, Coach Klinsmann’s viewing of the Munich game was difficult to understand. He used the pretext of observing the European team, but seeing Kim Min-jae again, who had been with him for over a week during the A match, was not persuasive.
As with all coaches, Coach Klinsmann relies heavily on Minjae Kim. On this day, he also said, “I received great help from Kim Min-jae joining.” Even if Kim Min-jae performs poorly in Munich, he has no choice but to be selected. It was an ironic situation to check on Kim Min-jae again in just a few days.
Coach Klinsmann said, “I was planning to watch the Munich-Leverkusen game this week, but changing the schedule is not a big problem.” Here, he declared that he would appear at the K-League site, saying, “I will be able to meet you at the K-League site this weekend.”
However, he made it clear that he intended to head overseas again. Coach Klinsmann revealed his plans to leave the country, saying, “He has a schedule to keep going back and forth, including watching games overseas.”
Coach Klinsmann asked for support for the national team. He said, “Even if we are strongly united and positive internally, we are bound to be shaken if the outside world or many people have negative opinions or stories,” and added, “It will be helpful to create a positive atmosphere together.” He continued, “When both the media and fans create a positive atmosphere before the Asian Cup, good results can be achieved,” and “It is not too late to criticize and criticize when the desired results are not achieved.”
It made something that wasn’t a big problem really difficult. If public opinion had not been so excited, when would we have been able to see him? There has never been a time when interest in the national team was as intense as it is these days. If coach Klinsmann wants the support and encouragement of fans, he must also meet the minimum qualifications.
