“I will try to erase negative public opinion through the right way.”
Jürgen Klinsmann (59, Germany), the new national soccer team coach, expressed his determination to “be evaluated based on the results.” He is determined to break through the negative public opinion surrounding him even before taking office as a result.
Coach Klinsman attended the official inauguration press conference held at the Paju National Football Team Training Center (NFC) on the 9th and said, “The position of a manager is a place where results are evaluated.” He thinks he is judged by his results,” he said.
He was a world-class striker who led Germany to win the World Cup during his playing days, but after his retirement, he has not left a significant mark as his manager recently. In particular, public criticism arose from the time of the announcement of the appointment, surrounding the unilateral resignation announcement through social media (SNS) during the tenure of Hertha Berlin (Germany), the player’s revelation that there was no tactical instruction while coaching, and the manager’s career that had been cut off for more than three years.
Manager Klinsmann said, “It was my last career as a manager when I came out of Berlin after about three months. Since then, I have mainly spent my time studying due to COVID-19. He also served as a technical research group (TSG) of the International Football Federation (FIFA), and was constantly involved in football, such as working as a commentator on the BBC or ESPN,” he said, responding to criticism of his recently cut coaching career.
Regarding the ‘journey’ in Berlin in 2020, when he announced his resignation through social media and left the team, he said, “I think it was a mistake. Life is a learning process every day. I promise it won’t happen again.” Regarding the autobiographical revelation of former German national team player Philipp Lahm, who said, ‘I only did physical training without tactical instructions,’ he said, “For example, strikers want to do more shooting training and midfielders to do more passing training. I think that Ram, the defender, wanted more of a tactical aspect. It was a normal comment,” he laughed.
As the head coach of the Korean national team, he set goals for winning the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup in January next year and making the semifinals at the FIFA World Cup North and Central America. Coach Klinsman’s ambition is to play aggressive football while maintaining the framework created by former coach Paulo Bento to some extent.
He said, “Because I am a former striker, I always prefer attacking soccer and a 4-3 victory rather than a 1-0 victory.” As much as there are positive aspects, he plans to have a conversation with the players and talk about what they think. He thinks it’s important to have continuity with the old style. (Bento) There is no hesitation in continuing the style.” 메이저사이트
“In sports, winning is important. My short-term goal for the next 10 months is to win the Asian Cup. The next goal will be set after passing the World Cup, but as Korea has already written the legend of the semifinals in 2002, I want to aim for the World Cup semifinals or higher as a mid- to long-term goal.” There is,” he added.
On this day, coach Klinsman directly announced that former Israeli coach Andreas Herzog (55, Austria), who had assisted him with the US national team, would take on the role of head coach for the national team. Cha Doo-ri (43), head of FC Seoul’s Youth Enhancement Office, will accompany the team until the Asian Cup in January next year in the role of technical advisor.
Paolo Stringara (61, Italy), former coach of Livorno, Bentuho coach Michael Kim (50, Canada, Korean name Kim Young-min) takes on the role of coach, and Andreas Köpke (61, Germany), former Hertha Berlin goalkeeper coach, Werner Leuthard (61, Germany) Former Berlin physical coach also joins the Klinsmann division. Klinsmanho’s debut match is an evaluation match against Colombia to be held in Ulsan on the 24th.
