Please trust us and support us until the Asian Cup.”
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, returned to Korea through Incheon International Airport on the afternoon of the 14th after completing two consecutive international matches in Europe.
Korea, which drew 0-0 with Wales on the 8th, won 1-0 against Saudi Arabia on the 13th. Coach Klinsmann, who took charge of the Korean national soccer team last February, reported his first win in six games. Since his appointment, his record is 1 win, 3 draws, and 2 losses.
Coach Klinsmann originally planned to stay in Europe and check on Kim Min-jae’s performance. However, on the 13th, he quickly changed his schedule and accompanied the players on their way home.
As he was recently criticized for his remote work and frequent overseas business trips, he seems to have changed his schedule and returned home with the national team. In addition, although they achieved their first victory in this European two-game series, there is strong criticism regarding the content of the game and work attitude.스포츠토토
Director Klinsmann began by saying, “I heard that you waited a long time for me.” At the same time, Coach Klinsmann explained, “I heard that the national team coach usually returns home with the players, so I thought again. I was planning to watch the game between Bayern Munich and Leverkusen this week, but changing the schedule didn’t seem like a big problem.”
In particular, he asked to re-evaluate himself after next year’s Asian Cup. Coach Klinsmann said, “It is important to receive strength from positive public opinion after one tournament is over and in the process of preparing for the next tournament. If negative stories come out, the team is bound to be shaken. All my attention is focused on the Asian Cup.
Korea will face Tunisia at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 13th of next month and Vietnam at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 17th. In November, two qualifying games for the 2026 North and Central America World Cup will be played. Afterwards, they will participate in the Asian Cup held in Qatar in January next year.
