Japan national soccer team coach Hajime Moriyasu is expected to improve relations with Angers Postecoglu Celtic coach.
Coach Moriyasu plans to check the performance of the Japanese national soccer team players who departed for Europe on the 24th and are playing in Europe. The issue that draws the most attention is whether coach Moriyasu will look at Celtic’s Japanese players.
Coach Moriyasu largely excluded Celtic players such as Kyogo Furuhashi 메이저놀이터and Leo Hatate, who are currently causing a goal storm in Scotland, in an A match last March. Moriyas explained the reason for not selecting players by referring to the level of the Scottish league, which was criticized by the Scottish media, including Postecoglu Celtic manager. Director Postecoglu even said publicly that he was ‘inviting’ director Moriyas in an interview with the media.
According to the Scottish media <Daily Record>, director Moriyasu took a step back in a meeting with Japanese media before leaving the country. Coach Moriyasu said, “Director Postecoglu always welcomes me. He informs me of the current situation of the Japanese players and gives information that is useful for our national team. I hope to have a more friendly relationship. He is a leader I really respect, so I have a chance to talk. If there is, I want to go,” he said. In fact, if the two meet, it seems that they will gather quite a lot of attention from the media of both Japan and Scotland.
Meanwhile, Jürgen Klinsmann, coach of the Korean national soccer team, is also visiting Celtic. Manager Klinsman will check Oh Hyun-kyu’s performance through the match between Kilmarnock and Celtic in the 32nd round of the 2022-2023 Scottish Premiership scheduled at Rugby Park on the 16th at 8:00 pm (Korean time).
