Korean national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who once said he would analyze the situation in Korea, suddenly went on vacation to the U.S. This shows the incompetence of the Korea Football Association (KFA) in failing to block him from going to the U.S. amid a desperate situation.
Klinsmann headed to the U.S., where his home is located, on Tuesday evening. Two days after returning to Korea, which humiliatingly failed to advance to the semifinals of the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup, he boarded a flight to the U.S.
Before the championship, Klinsmann bragged about Korea’s first win in 64 years. He stressed that if players’ mental strength is armed, it will be more threatening than any other tactic,” vowing to win the championship.
However, the team came back with a shocking loss. Korea, ranked 23rd in the FIFA rankings, lost to Jordan, ranked 87th, 0-2 with humiliating 0 effective shots, and suffered a bitter taste as it failed to pass the semifinals.
Coach Klinsmann responded to the criticism after the match against Jordan on the 7th, saying, “I will go to Korea and analyze it.” Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), and Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich) participated in the tournament as “all-time squads,” but the loss to Jordan made him expect that coach Klinsmann would admit “tactics without tactics” and take time to reflect.
This is the least manners that a coach should keep after returning to the U.S. after producing disappointing results. However, Klinsmann left for the U.S., where his family is located.
When Klinsmann returned home through Incheon International Airport on the 8th, he was taken care of by himself when the players apologized one after another for failing to produce good results to fans, saying, “It is not a failure to advance to the semifinals of the tournament.”
Korean fans are disappointed by the “failure to win,” but the reason why they are even more angry than that is because Korea lost helplessly due to coach Klinsmann’s “absence of ability” in the game against Jordan, which will remain after winning enough. 밤알바
Klinsmann made the unusual decision to let defensive midfielder Park Yong-woo (Al Ain) make his team leave the team in the second half after witnessing several absurd mistakes made in the first half of the match against Jordan. Consequently, Park, who lacked confidence, made a mistake in the early part of the second half, and this time provided an excuse for losing a point. Only then did Klinsmann replace him. However, the water had already spilled.
