Coach Jurgen Klinsmann seems to be able to play a role as a bridge for Korean players to advance into Europe.
Coach Klinsman of the Korean national soccer team arrived at Incheon International Airport Terminal 1 at 9:55 am on the 26th. Coach Klinsmann returned on Lufthansa German Airlines flight LH718. Director Klinsman immediately conducted a standing interview at E Gate.
For about 10 days from the 14th to the 24th, coach Klinsman directly observed the players active in Europe among the Korean national soccer team. Starting with Hong Hyun-seok (Ghent), Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic), Kim Min-jae (Napoli), Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), Jung Woo-young (Freiburg), and Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos) were checked.
In the interview on the return home, the main question was about the contents of the players’ inspection. He said that he felt what kind of conversation he had with players active in Europe, such as Kim Min-jae, Son Heung-min, and Oh Hyun-gyu, and what kind of life they were living.
He was also questioned about his appointment to the UEFA Advisory Board. Coach Klinsmann was named on the 23-member list of the newly created UEFA Advisory Committee on the 21st. According to UEFA, the UEFA Advisory Board is ‘an institutional and independent body that provides experience and expertise on fundamental football-related topics’.
Director Klinsman also said, “It’s a personal honor. You’ve seen the list, but I think it’s a beneficial position to be with the people on the list. You can learn a lot. You can also talk about rules such as VAR and handball. Also, get involved administratively. We discuss a lot about whether we can do it,” he explained about his role.먹튀검증
Manager Klinsmann will work with figures who made a mark in the football world, including AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, Zinedine Zidane, Rio Ferdinand and Luis Figo.
Then, will Klinsmann’s appointment to the UEFA Advisory Committee have any effect on the Korean national team? When asked, “Could the appointment of the UEFA Advisory Committee be an advantage for Korean players to advance overseas?” coach Klinsman explained, “We must go to Europe? It would be nice if there was a chance to advance to Europe, but it is not necessary.”
He added, “If you have a good team in the K-League and are in a good situation, you can be competitive enough no matter where you play. However, networking can help you transfer players, but I don’t think you have to go to Europe.”
