Former coach Jurgen Klinsmann (59, Germany), a world-renowned legend who had a career in leading the German and American national soccer teams in the past, has emerged as a candidate for the new command tower of the Korean national soccer team.
The fact was reported by the German media Kicker. Kicker reported on the 22nd that Klinsmann, former coach of the German national team, is a candidate for the new Korean national team. Klinsmann is already the best player in the world that no one knows. During the US World Cup, he scored a goal with a picturesque volley against Korea. Due to Klinsman’s offensive, Korea trailed 0-3 in the first half, but Hong Myung-bo’s great performance in the second half led to a 2-3 chase.
Klinsmann, who played as a striker as a player, scored 47 goals in 108 A-matches, leading Germany to win the 1990 Italian World Cup and the 1996 European Football Championship. After retiring from his active career, he walked the path of a leader. In 2004, he took the helm of the German national team and led the team to third place in the 2006 World Cup held in his country. From 2011 to 2016, he was in charge of the US national team, winning the Gold Cup in 2013 and advancing to the round of 16 at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. 메이저사이트
Klinsmann, whose career was focused on the national team, did not achieve much with the club team. In 2008, he took over as coach of Bayern Munich in the German Bundesliga and was unable to fill the year. After becoming head coach of Hertha Berlin (Germany) in November 2019, he resigned after only 77 days due to conflicts with the club and working from home.
After that, Klinsman worked as a member of the International Football Federation (FIFA) Technology Research Group (TSG) at the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Kicker mentioned this point and speculated, “Through Cha Du-ri, only Klins was connected to Korea.”
But nothing has been decided yet. The Korea Football Association is looking for a new coach after parting ways with Paulo Bento (Portugal), who led Korea to the round of 16 in the Qatar World Cup last year. The deadline is A match day next month. The position is that the appointment of a new coach will be completed before the A match against Uruguay.
If coach Klinsman comes, it is expected that he will be the most famous coach among the coaches who have come to Korea so far.
