Jürgen Klinsmann (59, Germany)안전놀이터 national football team coach, who was on a business trip to Europe, will return to Korea on the 26th.
The Korea Football Association said, “Coach Klinsman will return to Korea via Incheon International Airport on the morning of the 26th and will reveal his impressions of his trip to Europe at the airport.”
Head coach Klinsman left for the United States for a break earlier this month, then went to Europe on the 14th and visited England, Italy and Germany in turn.
During this process, coach Klinsmann watched the matches of national team captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic), Kim Min-jae (Napoli), Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), and Jeong Woo-young (Freiburg), and then went to a meeting with the players.
In particular, Son Heung-min scored a goal in front of coach Klinsmann, and Lee Jae-seong also contributed to the victory over Bayern Munich.
Although it ended in an incident, I had a direct interview with Kim Min-jae, who had complained of fatigue from the national team game, such as remarks suggesting retirement from the national team, and communicated with
In the process of seeing Europeans in person, local interviews such as “I want to encourage young players to advance to Europe” and “I want to win the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup next year” became a hot topic.
In addition, in the photo taken with Jung Woo-young, Joachim Löw, former coach of the German national soccer team, was also present, showing a ‘world-class’ presence.
Coach Klinsman, who has completed his European business trip, is expected to return to Korea on the 26th and visit the K-League for the time being. While head coach Klinsman was on a business trip, coach Michael Kim (Canada) and technical adviser Cha Doo-ri toured the K-League site to observe the players instead.
After staying in Korea for a while, he will depart for Doha, Qatar on the 7th of next month, and attend the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup final group draw event. The Asian Cup is a tournament that coach Klinsman has been aiming for to win right after taking office.
After the Asian Cup group draw is over, I will go back home and prepare for the A match in June. Klinsmann will play two warm-up games (location undecided) against Peru on June 16 and El Salvador on the 20th.
In the two evaluation matches last March, when Klinsman made his debut, he drew 2-2 with Colombia and then lost 1-2 to Uruguay, so he has yet to report his first win.
