“Former coach Paulo Bento led the Taegeuk Warriors (after being eliminated in the quarterfinals of the 2019 Asian Cup) and achieved a rebound in the 2022 Qatar World Cup finals. “It is questionable whether Coach Klinsmann will also be given this opportunity.” This
is the negative evaluation that ESPN, an American sports media outlet, poured out on the Korean national soccer team
led by Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany). The Korean national soccer team led by Coach Klinsmann will be playing from the 13th to February 11th, Korean time. They will challenge to win the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, which will be held in 5 cities and 9 stadiums in Qatar until Sunday. 카지노사이트 백링크
Korea is worthy of being called the strongest soccer player in Asia, having advanced to the World Cup finals for the 10th consecutive time. At the 2022 Qatar World Cup, they achieved the achievement of advancing to the round of 16 away for the second time in history. In the current FIFA rankings, Korea remains at the top at 23rd place, along with Japan (17th) and Iran (21st).
However, it had nothing to do with winning the Asian Cup. After winning two consecutive championships in the first competition in 1956 and the second competition in 1960, they have not won the championship for over 60 years. He only took second place and third place four times each. Therefore, fans have greater hopes and expectations for winning than ever before.
This Asian Cup is also an important test for Coach Klinsmann, who took over as head coach of the Korean national team in February of last year. When Coach Klinsmann took over as head coach, he chose ‘winning the Asian Cup’ as his first goal.
Coach Klinsmann’s life in Korea was not smooth. Since his launch, he has drawn only 5 consecutive games (3 draws and 2 losses), raising concerns. Outside of the game, controversy arose over the player overturning his promise to live in the country and staying abroad longer. In a domestic international match, he received loud boos from fans instead of cheers.
Recently, the view on Director Klinsmann has become much warmer. Since their first win against Saudi Arabia (1-0 win) in September of last year, they have continued to win 6 consecutive games and keep scoreless in 7 consecutive games until the friendly match against Iraq (1-0 win) on the 6th. 토토사이트 백링크
The criticism that ‘color is not visible’ was also erased. By emphasizing strong forward pressure, minimizing the gap between offense and defense, and quick and concise counterattacks, a more stable performance is being produced.
However, Coach Klinsmann’s position is not strong. It is correct to say that the various controversies related to him have temporarily subsided below the surface. Whenever criticism poured in, Coach Klinsmann repeated, “I will be evaluated through the Asian Cup.”
Coach Klinsmann said in an interview upon returning home after completing an away friendly in Europe in September last year, “The Asian Cup will be our standard, and if the results are not good, fans and media will also ask questions and criticize.” He added, “I think we have no choice but to be put to the test then.” do. “That is the director’s destiny,” he said.
In addition, “I have a lot of experience in tournaments, I have enjoyed them, and I have experience on how to prepare and form a team,” he said. “I think I can form a good enough team. “If we can go to Qatar with the best team, we will be able to achieve good results,” he emphasized.
Concerns about Coach Klinsmann do not only exist in Korea. Even overseas, people are looking at him with uneasiness. On the 9th, ESPN said, ‘Korea with Son Heung-min… In an article titled ‘Is Klinsmann the right director?’ he directly criticized director Klinsmann.
ESPN said, “Coach Klinsmann was fired after less than one season at Bayern Munich (Germany). Philipp Lahm (who was a national team player at the time) later pointed out that Coach Klinsmann was tactically incompetent. He
also said, “The 76 days leading German professional soccer team Hertha Berlin from the end of 2019 to 2020 were miserable times.” “The German media evaluated that ‘Behind the success of the German national team, Joachim Löw (not Klinsman) demonstrated the real power,’” he added. 메이저사이트 백링크
Coach Klinsmann was a star player and striker who led the world’s strongest German national team during his playing days. He boasts a brilliant career that cannot be compared to other country’s coaches participating in this Asian Cup. As a leader, he was always accompanied by question marks. In fact, the reason he took charge of the unfamiliar Korean national team after a gap of six years was to remove the ‘question mark’ attached to him.
The Korean national team has brilliant members and potential that are capable of winning the Asian Cup in name and reality. Now, in order for that wish to become a reality, Klinsmann’s true ‘leadership’ is needed.
Before the opening of the Asian Cup, Coach Klinsmann said, “We are going into the competition with a lot of energy and a lot of faith. “I will prepare well to lift the Asian Cup with the people after 64 years,” he said, and pledged, “I hope to see you in good form and with good results.”
