As coach Jurgen Klinsmann (58) was appointed as the Korean national team coach, there is a high interest in whether Cha Doo-ri (42), FC Seoul’s youth strengthening director, will come as the national team coach.
On the 27th, the Korea Football Association (KFA) officially announced the appointment of head coach Klinsman as the head coach of the Korean national soccer team. His contract period is about 3 years and 5 months until the 2026 World Cup finals in North and Central America.
The coaching staff to assist Klinsman has not yet been decided. KFA said, “We plan to discuss with coach Klinsman to finalize the coaching staff.” The coaching staff is expected to consist of two foreign coaches and two Korean coaches.메이저놀이터
As a Korean coach, Cha Doo-Ri is a strong candidate. Cha Doo-ri and coach Klinsman had a relationship that worked together as members of the FIFA Technology Research Group (TSG) at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. It is known that the relationship with Cha Doo-ri played a role in the process of appointing manager Klinsman. If Cha Doo-ri becomes the national team coach, it will be a great help to Klinsmann, who is from Germany. It can also serve as a bridge in communication between the coach and the players.
Director Cha served as the national team coach for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. After serving as Seoul U-18 Osan High School coach in 2019, he has been working as the head of the youth reinforcement office in Seoul since 2021.
Currently, Cha Doo-ri has not received an official proposal from KFA. On the 27th, a Seoul official said, “There was no proposal from the KFA, and we haven’t heard anything about it from Cha Du-ri.” However, he said, “I don’t know how the situation will change in the future.”
