“So you’re not going to pick an SON?” Clince’s frequent overseas trip, and overseas media also criticized

South Korea’s national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann is under pressure for various reasons, not only because of his lack of tactics and leadership. Foreign media also paid attention to the situation.

Sports professional ESPN India said on the 8th (Korea Standard Time), “Klinsman said he will not resign. However, will Korea be able to replace Klinsman?” and reported on the unfortunate situation of Korean soccer.

Uli Stielike was the only Korean soccer coach who has been dismissed for the past decade, media said, downplaying the possibility that Klinsmann will be dismissed. However, Klinsmann has pointed out his problems properly. He criticized not only the lackluster performance of the Asian Cup but also the team’s thorough disregard for K-leaguers.꽁머니지급

Klinsmann caused controversy by frequently going abroad, ignoring the resident who he promised when he was appointed as coach. He went abroad to check key European players, including Captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), and Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), rather than checking K-League players. He even visited various events around the world, drawing criticism from soccer fans.

The media also said, “There are many stars active in Europe in Korea. It is common for national team coaches to regularly check on active players in clubs,” but added, “However, players such as Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in have undeniable skills. It is more reasonable to identify players who are not well known.”

“In the current soccer era, it is not difficult to check the video clips of players playing in Europe. Even if Son Heung-min fails to show good performances in several matches, and Klinsmann observes this closely, he rarely suggests world-class players in the national team,” he said, pointing out Klinsmann’s frequent visits to foreign countries.

In addition, media outlets expressed regret that Klinsmann turned a blind eye to young talented players in the K-League, including Na Sang-ho (Machida Zelvia), Ko Jae-hyun (Daegu FC), and Won Doo-jae (Kim Cheon-moo), who played for FC Seoul until the last season. He also criticized the team for not selecting Joo Min-gyu (Ulsan HD), the top scorer in the K-League. ” Joo scored a whopping 56 goals in K-League 1 during the three seasons. I wonder what else he should do to gain international recognition,” media outlets said. “Although Joo is not young, Korea has not prepared for the future of this tournament.”

In this year’s event, Korea scored 10 goals in six matches from the group stage to the semifinal. It may not look bad in terms of figures, but the content was not. Most of the 10 goals were scored in set piece situations. In addition, there were many theatrical goals scored in the second half of extra time.

We regret that the striker has shown poor performance. Cho Kyu-sung, the “handsome hero,” only scored one goal in this year’s event. He received a lot of criticism from the public due to his poor performance in the group stage. He became a hero again by scoring a dramatic equalizer at a time when the team was losing 0-1 against Saudi Arabia in the round of 16. However, he failed to maintain good performance in the matches against Australia in the quarterfinals and Jordan in the semifinals. Backup striker Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic) also ended the tournament without scoring a single goal.

There were too few strikers. Manager Klinsmann selected only two strikers, Cho Kyu-sung and Oh Hyun-kyu. Another striker, Hwang Ui-jo (Alanjaspor), was suspended from the national team for illegal filming. One striker was vacant, but Klinsmann focused on strengthening defense instead. He took six center-back players alone.

Before the Asian Cup, Klinsmann was asked if he had chosen a striker to replace Hwang Ui-jo. “There are many players to replace Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan,” Klinsmann said.

This led to a failure to win the Asian Cup. Hwang Ui-jo was absent and Jo Gyu-seong, the main striker, was sluggish, hardly getting out of the slump in attack. Son Heung-min was the front-line striker, but even this failed. In the end, Korea was completely defeated 0-2 in the semifinal match against Jordan. Above all, Korea humiliatingly secured 0 effective shots against Jordan.

However, manager Klinsmann is expected to take a short break and then move to Europe to check Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-in and Kim Min-jae’s games.
