“Of course. The coach who will be in charge of the national team will continue the soccer philosophy of the past. We will appoint such a leader. It is always important to know what we want and what we have done. do.”
On January 11, Michael Müller, chairman of the Korea Football Association’s Power Reinforcement Committee토토사이트, explained clearly the plan to appoint the next coach of the national soccer team. However, while appointing director Jurgen Klinsmann, he mentioned the wrong ‘Gangnam Style’, and it is controversial.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 27th that it had appointed German coach Jürgen Klinsmann (58) as the new head coach of the national soccer team.
The contract period with coach Klinsman is about 3 years and 5 months from March to the 2026 World Cup finals in North and Central America. The salary was not disclosed according to the agreement of both parties. The coaching staff who will assist the coach will soon be decided after discussing with Klinsman and the Korea Football Association. It was also a condition of his contract to live in Korea during his tenure.
There were three main reasons for choosing director Klinsmann. Leadership, motivation and professionalism. Previously, Chairman Müller set up five criteria while working on appointing a manager. The first was professionalism, the second was coaching experience, the third was clear motivation, the fourth was teamwork, and the last was environmental factors.
First of all, Chairman Muller explained that coach Klinsman meets all five criteria. But one thing is missing. It is whether or not to inherit Bentoho’s soccer philosophy that has been going on for 4 years. On January 11, Chairman Muller said, “Of course. The coach who will take over the national team will continue the football philosophy of the past. We will appoint such a leader. It is always important to know what we want and what we have done. “I do,” he replied clearly.
However, with the appointment of manager Klinsman, the words changed. When asked whether he would continue Bentoho’s football philosophy, Chairman Muller mentioned Gangnam Style, saying, “We should think about the Korean style, not follow or copy the style of a specific coach.” I don’t know if it was Chairman Mueller’s joke, but it didn’t fit the press conference, and he said, “I don’t think it’s good to follow the style of one leader because you don’t know what the result will be if you just copy it.”
At the same time, Chairman Müller said, “There is a soccer philosophy of the Korean national team that has been going on for four years, and as coach Bento left, I thought about the future of Korean soccer. What I expect from coach Klinsman is how to create many scoring chances and how to do it. A little bit. More simply think of Portugal at the World Cup in Qatar, you can expect to score goals simply and easily and quickly. Another part is to switch to defense when you lose the ball. When you switch to defense, you can expect immediate pressure. “It’s what you would expect when you look at Klinsmann’s style,” he explained his football philosophy.
It was an answer that did not fit the question and situation, and it was a press conference that was a big disappointment to fans who wanted to continue Bentuho’s soccer.
