Even the Japanese media began to question the leadership of the men’s national soccer team coach Jürgen Klinsmann.
The Japanese sports magazine ‘Tokyo Sports Shimbun’ evaluated on the 18th, “Although coach Klinsmann, a star player and leader, succeeded in his first victory, the prospects for the Asian Cup are still unclear.”
Korea, ranked 28th in the FIFA rankings, won 1-0 in a friendly match against Saudi Arabia in England on the 13th. Coach Klinsmann achieved his first win in six games since taking office in March. Nevertheless, he was criticized for his poor performance even though he formed the national team as a member who was considered the strongest of all time.먹튀검증
The Tokyo Sports Shimbun reported the mood in Korea, saying, “Doubts about coach Klinsmann have grown even after the victory against Saudi Arabia,” and “Criticism of his irresponsible attitude is taking precedence over the positive response regarding the victory.” The media briefly pointed out that the background to the negative public opinion was “due to his attitude of being more interested in other things than his main job as coach of the Korean national team.”
Japan’s Nikkan Sports sarcastically said that Coach Klinsmann, who likes to work from home overseas, said that just watching a K-League game became news. The media said, “Coach Klinsmann became a hot topic after watching the K-League game for two consecutive days last weekend. “It would have been natural for Hajime Moriyasu, the coach of the Japanese national team, but it is rare for coach Klinsmann, who prefers to work from home,” he pointed out.
It was also reported that director Klinsmann is receiving a lot of criticism for breaking his promise to reside in Korea. Nikkan Sports explained that, conscious of this public opinion, Coach Klinsmann changed his schedule to stay in Europe to check on overseas players and returned to the country with the national team players playing in the K-League.
Coach Klinsmann watched the Jeonbuk Hyundai-Gangwon FC match held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 16th, and inspected the K League players while watching the FC Seoul-Gwangju FC match at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 17th.
