‘Not crossing the line’ has become as important as ‘communication’

Can the Korean men’s soccer team wisely overcome the crisis?

 With the new year, Korean football has also undergone a change. After parting ways with former coach Paulo Bento, who had advanced to the round of 16 for the second time in history, he is looking for a new coach. Michael Müller, the new head of the National Team Strengthening Committee, who is in charge of personnel affairs, emphasized that he would select a successor who is competent and motivated while inheriting the philosophy of the existing coach Bento.카지노사이트

 It is also a golden opportunity to resolve the noise between the players and the Korea Football Association (KFA). Korean football was caught up in the ‘2701 Controversy’ before enjoying all the joy of the Qatar World Cup round of 16. It started when the personal trainer of ace and captain Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) openly complained to KFA.

 As the noise grew, the KFA issued an official statement. The contents revealed the actions of some players who crossed the line. It has been revealed that a specific person has been requested to be excluded from the scene or inappropriate words and actions have been made. But that’s the past. We must forget this and come together again to run toward the upcoming 2026 World Cup in North and Central America. This is why appointing a new director is so important. This is a time when we need a leader who can bring everyone together.

 Coincidentally, the times have also changed, and a foothold has been prepared to share the common theme of ‘new director’. Key players in Korean soccer, such as Lee Jae-seong (31, Mainz) and Kim Min-jae (27, Napoli), openly expressed their thoughts on the appointment of a coach. Müller, the new chairman, said, “I think my position is a communicator and coordinator. I will communicate not only with the players, but also with all KFA staff.”

 It is expected that the players will be able to ‘properly voice’ what kind of style they want the coach to lead them as they wish. However, it should not lead to actions that cross the line, ignoring procedures, processes, and culture within the organization, as in the ‘2701 Controversy’. Players’ opinions should only be used as a plus alpha in the process by Chairman Muller and the Supervisors Selection Committee.
