It has become an issue for the Korean national soccer team coach to watch the K-League. Jürgen Klissmann (59), the coach of the Korean national soccer team, watched a professional soccer K-League game for the first time in a long time.
Coach Klinsmann watched the K League 1 Jeonbuk Hyundai vs. Gangwon FC game held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium in Jeonbuk Province on the 16th with national team coach Cha Du-ri. He appears to have inspected the national team’s Moon Seon-min and Ahn Hyeon-beom (Jeonbuk). In this day’s game, Gangwon striker Kim Dae-won scored a key goal and received recognition.
Coach Klinsmann also plans to watch the match between FC Seoul and Gwangju FC held at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 17th.
It has been about three months since Coach Klinsmann appeared at a K-League stadium. Coach Klinsmann watched the ‘Super Match’ between Suwon Samsung and FC Seoul on June 24. Although he did watch the event match between Team K League and Atlético Madrid (Spain) last July, Coach Klinsmann traveled around the world and attended various events rather than directly checking on the K League players in Korea.
메이저놀이터He evaluated and analyzed players of other nationalities, including Lionel Messi (Inter Miami) and Harry Kane (Bayern Munich), who had no connection to Korea, and also attended the European Champions League draw event. Along with the controversy over the neglect of the K-League, the dissatisfaction of soccer fans has also grown.
In fact, watching the K League this time almost didn’t happen. Coach Klinsmann was scheduled to go to Germany after the Saudi Arabia game held in Newcastle, England on the 13th and watch the German Bundesliga match between Kim Min-jae’s team Munich and Leverkusen. But he suddenly changed his plan and returned home with the players on the 14th.
Coach Klinsmann took charge of Korea last February. However, the time I stayed in Korea before this entry was only 67 days. At the time of his inauguration press conference, he said, “It is natural for a Korean national team coach to reside in Korea,” making the situation even more incoherent.
At the time of returning to Korea, Coach Klinsmann said, “I came because I heard that many people were waiting for me. I also heard from association officials that the coach usually returns home with the players after an overseas expedition, so I thought again.” “I was going to watch the game, but changing the schedule wouldn’t be a big problem. I thought it was right to travel with the national team, and we will meet at the K-League site this weekend,” he explained.
However, it is unclear whether Coach Klinsmann will attend more K-League games in the future. Coach Klinsmann previously said, “We have to keep going back and forth. There are games and schedules to watch in Europe as well.”
In response to various controversies, including frequent outings, Coach Klinsmann requested that his evaluation be postponed until the Asian Cup to be held in January next year. Coach Klinsmann said, “I think the Asian Cup will be our reference point. Of course, if the results are not good, fans and media will question and criticize me. If that happens, I have no choice but to be put to the test. This is the fate of a coach.”
Coach Klinsmann also said, “I have a lot of experience in tournaments. I have always enjoyed tournaments as a coach and as a player. I have experience in various competitions such as the European Champions League and the World Cup, and have experience on how to prepare and how to build a team. It is good enough. “We can build a team,” he said, expressing confidence.
Currently, Coach Klinsmann has 1 win, 3 draws, and 2 losses. After failing to win in five games since his appointment, he achieved his first win with a 1-0 win over Saudi Arabia. National team striker Cho Gyu-seong (Midtjylland) scored a wonderful header and the winning goal.
