Even the German media is worried about South Korean soccer.
The South Korean national soccer team (ranked 28th in FIFA), 카지노사이트 coached by Klinsmann, drew 0-0 with Wales (ranked 35th in FIFA) in an A-match friendly at Cardiff City Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, at 3:45 a.m. (KST) on Aug. 8.
After the match, Germany’s ‘Sport1’ reported, “It was about 17 years ago that Klinsmann was heavily criticized in Germany for his residence. The honorary chairman of Bayern Munich, Uli Hoeneß, publicly complained about Klinsmann, then the national team coach, a year before the 2006 World Cup in Germany. The complaint was that Klinsmann, as Germany’s head coach, was required to live in Germany,” Höness said, adding that Klinsmann was also embroiled in a residency controversy in South Korea.
“Despite the unusual discussions, Klinsmann decided not to leave the United States. As was the case nearly two decades ago, Klinsmann’s absence has also been heavily criticized. Klinsmann works around the clock, but not on the field,” the report said, highlighting how Klinsmann is losing credibility with Korean fans.
The controversy over Klinsmann’s expatriation seemed to be resolved when he announced that he would stay in South Korea. “I will be working in South Korea. I’m a Korean coach, so it’s natural for me to stay here. I will live in Korea and learn the culture.” However, out of the last six months, he has only spent about two months in Korea.
‘Sport1’ reported, “Klinsmann has been criticized. These allegations may sound familiar to some German fans” and worried about Korean soccer. The reality is that people abroad, even in Klinsmann’s home country of Germany, are worried about Korean soccer in a faraway land.
It’s not just the traveling controversy. If Klinsmann had maintained his good form based on the football shaped by Paulo Bento, no one would be criticizing him for what he is doing now. In a managerial position where you are judged by the content and the results, whether you are meeting with the public or traveling to Europe, you would be praised for being a workaholic.
The reality is quite the opposite. To put it bluntly, he looks like a celebrity who is too busy traveling to do his job. That’s how he was before he took over the South Korean national team, and it hasn’t changed since. I’m worried about the future of Korean soccer under Klinsmann.
