Likes and dislikes Klinsman, KFA’s senior background… Chairman Muller’s press conference today

Coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany)안전놀이터, who was a recognized top-class striker during his active career, but showed disappointing moves as a leader, was appointed as the new head coach of the Korean national soccer team.

Both experts and fans have mixed likes and dislikes, but why did the Korea Football Association (KFA) choose Cleans only?

Michael Müller (Germany), head of the Korea Football Association’s National Team Strengthening Committee, will hold a press conference at the Soccer Hall on the 28th and directly talk about the background of bringing him in.

The Korea Football Association announced on the 27th that it had appointed Klinsmann, a German coach, as the new head coach of the national soccer team. His contract period is about 3 years and 5 months from March to the 2026 World Cup finals in North and Central America.

He is a person who boasts the heaviest name value among all Korean commanders, but some voices of concern are also heard. This is because ‘Leader Klinsman’ has gone through several controversies in the past.

His reputation as a player was great. He is from a ‘Legend’ who played an active role as a striker in Germany’s ‘Tank Corps’.

He performed at his best, leading Germany to victory in the 1990 World Cup in Italy and the 1996 European Football Championship (Euro 1996). In the 1994 World Cup in the United States, he scored two goals against Korea and is a familiar figure to domestic fans.

On the other hand, the director’s career is somewhat questionable. In November 2019, his most recent, Hertha Berlin (Germany) left the team in disgrace after 10 games without lasting for two months.

Furthermore, even during the days of the German national team, Joachim Löw, then head coach, was assigned on-site work, and he stayed at his home in California, USA, causing controversy. KFA, as if conscious of this point, stated in a press release announcing the appointment of a manager on the 27th that “it was a condition of the contract to live in Korea during his tenure.”

He is a leader who was far from being evaluated as having excellent tactics overall. Philippe Lahm, a star player from the German national team, looked back on Klinsmann’s Bayern Munich (Germany) days in his autobiography and criticized, “Under him, we only trained physically. There was little tactical guidance.”

During the 2022 Qatar World Cup, he had experience working as a FIFA technical research group (TSG), but as a field leader, it was 3 years since he left Hertha Berlin, and he was returning to the national team after 6 years since his time in the United States. It is unknown whether he will be able to adapt well to modern football.

While many fans are wondering what the background was for Klinsman, who was to lead the Taegeuk Warriors despite the controversy, Chairman Muller will hold a press conference on the 28th and explain himself.

Meanwhile, head coach Klinsman will return to Korea next week and begin his full-fledged activities as the head coach of the Korean national team. His debut match is a friendly match against Colombia to be held in Ulsan on the 24th of next month.
