This time, ‘not Europe, but Korea’… Klinsmann, who doesn’t care about public opinion, can he do that this time too?

Now we will play the A match in Korea. Coach Jürgen Klinsmann will no longer be able to ignore public opinion.

On the 2nd, the Korean national soccer team, led by Coach Klinsmann, revealed the list of 24 players who will participate in the October international match. The national team will be convened at the Paju National Training Center at 2 p.m. on the 9th, and will play friendly matches against Tunisia on the 12th (8 p.m., Seoul World Cup Stadium) and Vietnam on the 17th (8 p.m., Suwon World Cup Stadium).

Public opinion about Coach Klinsmann is still the worst. Coach Klinsmann, who took charge of the Korean national team following coach Paulo Bento, played international matches in Korea in March and June. He played a total of 4 matches, drawing 2 and losing 2. If they do not win against Colombia (2-2 draw), Uruguay (1-2 loss), Peru (0-1 loss), and El Salvador (1-1 draw), Klinsmann will become a team where his worries exceed his expectations.스포츠토토

After that, problems arose one after another. Director Klinsmann, who called for permanent residence in Korea, did not stay in Korea but traveled overseas. He moved across continents, including the United States, England, and France, but never came to Korea. He also worked hard on panels such as the global media ‘ESPN’, but similarly, the evaluation of Korean players playing overseas and domestically was at a non-existent level.

As I continued to give interviews that I did not understand, my credibility hit rock bottom. Some even said, “Aren’t you ignoring Korea?” Even after drawing 0-0 with Wales and defeating Saudi Arabia 1-0 in the September international match for their first win, the public’s opinion of Coach Klinsmann was not positive. He said he would come to Korea and observe the K-League, but left the country after 5 days and appeared on ‘ESPN’ to predict Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool matches.

The match against Wales and Saudi Arabia, where the controversy really arose, was held in Europe. Even though it was boiling over with criticism at home, it could be ignored in Europe. Although he came to Korea, he watched only two K League games and left again. The only time Coach Klinsmann appeared was at an entry press conference with reporters, not fans. This A-match will be the first time we directly face domestic public opinion.

Tunisia and Vietnam are both powerful teams, but considering their current national team members, they are opponents they can easily beat. If the team shows no room for improvement against Tunisia and Vietnam amid various controversies and continues to appear to ignore Korea, they may react directly to public opinion. There is a strong possibility that it will become even more serious than it is now.

It is difficult to expect Coach Klinsmann to change. Still, he must be conscious of public opinion and show at least an effort. Otherwise, if the game is played in a mess, public opinion will reach a level that cannot be ignored even if one wants to.
