The hard-sealed Korean soccer wound and the ‘broadcaster’ Clinsman who touched it

Jurgen Klinsmann touched the wounds of Korean football again, which was hard sealed.

Klinsmann appeared with Andreas Herzog (former head coach) on the Austrian Serbus TV sports talk show on the 22nd (local time) and mentioned once again the fight between Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) and Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) during the Asian Cup.

Klinsmann said, “A young player (Lee Kang-in) who plays in Paris said rude things to the old player (Son Heung-min), the captain of Tottenham. The two got into a physical fight, and due to Lee Kang-in, Son’s fingers were dislocated. It ended with a few players stopping him. We talked, but everyone was mentally shaken. I felt that we were not one team anymore.”

South Korea played in the Asian Cup with Klinsmann, but was eliminated after losing to Jordan in the semifinals. In particular, Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in suffered internal strife when it was revealed that they had a fight before the match against Jordan.

Klinsmann was replaced after the Asian Cup by making excuses for this incident, and Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in hugged each other again to seal the wounds. Since then, under the interim coach Hwang Sun-hong, he played the third and fourth rounds of the second Asian qualifying round for the 2026 North and Central America World Cup with Thailand in March, recording one win and one draw.

However, Klinsmann, who returned as a “broadcaster,” also criticized Korean soccer and Korean culture. 고소득알바

“In Korean culture, someone has to take responsibility. Players are the coaching staff’s turn to play in the next game,” Klinsmann said. “We didn’t know what was going on between the players. However, in Korean culture, we learned that older players are right even if they are wrong.”

“While I was the Korean coach, I went to observe players playing overseas,” he said. “A year in Korea was fantastic in terms of experience and learning. Korea has surpassed the quarterfinals of the World Cup, so I wanted to continue to be with him.”
