“Extreme performance” Foreign media saw Klinsman going to Korea, mixed views

The soccer world is excited about coach Jurgen Klinsmann’s trip to Korea. 

The Korea Football Association (KFA) officially announced on the 27th that it had appointed Klismann from Germany as the head coach of the men’s national team. Coach Klinsman is expected to make his debut as the Korean coach in a friendly match against Colombia to be held in Ulsan on the 24th of next month.

The football world is paying attention to the fact that coach Klinsman has left great achievements as a player and leader, and that it is his return after three years. 

The German media <Buld> said, “Coach Klinsmann is coming back splendidly” and “We can see Klinsman as a coach again, and (depending on the performance of the Korean national team) we may see Klinsman on the World Cup stage.”

At the same time, he introduced the relationship between coach Klinsmann and Michael Müller, head of the KFA Power Reinforcement Committee, who were active together in the German soccer world, saying, “Korea is the third national team he has been in charge of.” 

‘Disgraceful’ resignation after 10 weeks in Berlin… Shall we restore honor in Korea? 

Coach Klinsmann led the German national team to third place in the 2006 World Cup in Germany and put the US national team to the championship in the 2013 North and Central America Championships. However, in 2019, the German Bundesliga Hertha Berlin메이저사이트, where he was most recently active as a manager, resigned in disgrace after only 10 weeks. 

The German version of <Sky Sports> said, “Coach Klinsmann started his 5th coaching career in Korea. 

The British BBC, where director Klinsmann worked as a commentator, also emphasized, “Director Klinsmann’s most recent career was that he resigned after 10 weeks at Hertha Berlin three years ago.” However, “Klinsmann is still a popular coach in Germany,” he added. 

Some even introduced coach Klinsman’s ‘bad relationship’ with Carlos Queiroz’s Qatar national team, which will face off in the Asian Cup. 

Coach Klinsman, who served as a member of the FIFA Technical Study Group (TSG) during last year’s World Cup in Qatar, said when Iran defeated Wales in the group stage at the time, “Iran manipulated the referees.” It says something. This is their culture.”

Then Queiroz, who led the Iranian national team, also protested, saying, “It is a remark that insults Iranian culture and Iranian football,” and said, “I must resign as a member of the FIFA Technology Research Group.” 

‘Armive’ Japanese soccer fans “I’m looking forward to the match between Korea and Japan”

Korea’s archrival, Japan, also showed great interest in Klinsmann’s appointment as head coach. Japan’s NHK Broadcasting said, “The Korean national team has hired Klinsman as the successor to coach Paulo Bento.” 

Japanese soccer fans expressed envy on social media, saying, “Why can’t Japan bring in a manager with such a track record?” “It’s compared to the Japan Football Association.”  

On the other hand, there are negative prospects such as “I will do well in Asia, but I will struggle in the World Cup” and “Coach Klinsman did well when leading the national team, but he is sluggish at the club and his performance is extremely different.” 

A Japanese soccer fan said, “I really liked Klinsman when he was a player,” but also said, “But I never want to lose in a head-to-head match against Korea.”
