On the afternoon of the 13th, Coach Klinsmann, who won 4:0 in the Hana Bank invitational national soccer team evaluation match between Korea and Tunisia held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium in Seongsan-dong, Mapo-gu, is talking with Chung Mong-gyu, President of the Korea Football Association.
Amid strong criticism of the national team for their lethargic performance in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, soccer experts also expressed bitterness at the complacent response of coach Jurgen Klinsmann and the Korea Football Association (KFA).
Korea was evaluated as having the strongest player team of all time, including Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), and Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich). However, throughout the tournament, they disappointed fans with performance that was below expectations, and ultimately lost in the semifinals against Jordan, failing to challenge for the title for the first time in 64 years.
National soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who failed to achieve his dream of winning the Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years, is returning home through Incheon International Airport Terminal 1 on the afternoon of the 8th.
The biggest reason for the failure of the competition is Coach Klinsmann’s lack of leadership. Coach Klinsmann was unable to break the frustrating performance throughout the tournament with tactics that did not come up with any specific measures, and he frustrated the fans with his unconvincing remarks.
After the elimination, Korea was seething with anger, but Coach Klinsmann said, “I will go to Korea and analyze it well,” and left the country quietly, as if running away to the United States two days after returning.
The situation is so serious that even foreign media mocked it, saying, “Both the media and fans are criticizing, but Coach Klinsmann, who is in crisis, just keeps smiling.”
Soccer experts analyze that not only is Coach Klinsmann the problem, but KFA’s incomprehensible management is also contributing to the problem.
Amid continued calls for the dismissal of national soccer team coach Jürgen Klinsmann due to his failure to win the Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years, frequent overseas business trips, and ‘working from home‘, the Korea Football Association is presiding over a full-time vice president from the game, excluding Korea Football Association President Chung Mong-gyu, who announced his intention not to participate. It was announced that an executive meeting would be held. The photo shows the Football Association in Sinmun-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 13th.
Commentator Park Moon-seong said, “Director Klinsmann has problems with his professional ethics and attitude more than anything else. The reason public opinion is angry about his attitude is not just because of his actions in going to the United States this time. He pointed out, “Repeated mistakes, such as working from home and not properly monitoring the domestic league, kept piling up and exploded this time.”
He continued, “Klinsmann is repeatedly engaging in uncontrollable behavior. “It’s hard to understand when you look at it,” he said. “Then the question that arises here is, ‘What is KFA doing?’ “I wonder why KFA, which was hired by paying money, is unable to control anything even if the person receiving the money behaves as it pleases,” he said, bitterly complaining about KFA’s poor management.
Some analyze that the reason KFA was unable to dismiss coach Klinsmann was because of penalties such as remaining salary, which is estimated to be about 10 billion won.
Commentator Park said about this, “Until now, every time a manager was dismissed, there was a penalty. By that logic, it means that all coaches with remaining contract terms are subject to a penalty, so they cannot be fired. “I heard there is something other than a penalty, but I’m curious what that is,” he said, raising his voice. 토토사이트
