Korean football heading to North and Central America, is Klinsman a ‘competent manager’ rather than a ‘famous manager’?

New coach Jurgen Klinsmann (59, Germany) of the national soccer team arrived in Korea on the 8th. Coach Klinsman, who signed a contract for three years and five months on the premise of advancing to the 2026 World Cup finals to be co-hosted by the three North and Central American countries (Canada, the United States, and Mexico), said, “It is an honor. Korea performed well at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. I will inherit it,” he said, suggesting winning the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, which will be held in Qatar in January next year, as his first goal.

However, the gaze of the football world is complicated. There are a lot of concerns. It is because ‘Director Klinsman’ was close to failure compared to his splendid player days. Even in the national team that led the 2006 World Cup Germany to third place, and the United States, which made the 2014 World Cup Brazil round of 16, his leadership was not recognized. In the autobiography of former German representative Philip Lahm, “(Klinsmann) only did physical training. The anecdote is famous that the game was prepared by the players. 토토사이트

In addition, coach Klinsmann drove prestigious Bayern Munich into a dark period, and in February 2020, Hertha Berlin (Germany) announced a breakup on social media (SNS) after 3 months, drawing criticism. During the Qatar World Cup, he visited the site as a member of the International Football Federation (FIFA) Technical Research Group (TSG), but his managerial career was interrupted for three years.

Public opinion still asks, “Is Coach Klinsman really a good coach?” However, the Korea Football Association (KFA), which caused controversy by destroying the normal coach selection system, has not resolved this fundamental question at all. Michael Müller, head of the National Team Strengthening Committee (Germany), answered questions such as ▲football philosophy ▲guidance direction ▲maintaining Bento’s legacy at a press conference for the appointment of the manager, saying, “(Coach Klinsmann) is the type of manager. He saw the human side. He was consistent with absurd stories such as, “His strong personality is his charm.”
