Klins Manho started to win the Asian Cup… The first schedule is a meeting with Son Heung-min
- on Apr 13, 2023
Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany) national soccer team coach set out to take full-fledged steps to win the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, which was set as the first goal. Starting with meetings with European players in the national team, he plans to digest a tight schedule such as coaching staff strategy meetings, attending the Asian Cup group draw ceremony, and checking the base camp.
The first schedule for the overseas inspection was set to a meeting with captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham). The 31st round of the English Premier League between Tottenham and Bournemouth will be held on the 15th at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England. He directly congratulates Son Heung-min, who recently reached the 100th personal goal on the EPL stage, and has a meeting with officials from his team, Tottenham.
Manager Klinsman has been treated as a legend by home fans by scoring 30 goals in a total of 56 games while serving for Tottenham twice (1994-95, 1997-98). The main purpose is to check Son Heung-min’s physical condition, but it is expected to be a time of ‘golden return’ for the director himself.
Then cross over to Kilmarnock, Scotland. After watching Celtic’s frontline striker Oh Hyun-kyu play against Kilmarnock on the Scottish Premier League stage, he plans to have time to encourage him on the field.
After that, he moved to Italy. The UEFA Champions League quarterfinal second leg between Napoli and AC Milan (above Italy스포츠토토) will be held in Naples on the 19th. The purpose was to watch Kim Min-jae play, but due to the accumulation of warnings, he was unable to participate, so he was able to focus on the player interview.
Kim Min-jae is a key defender leading the defense line of the national soccer team, but he showed concern in the process of playing two consecutive A-matches last month. He is in a state of psychological decline due to rumors of a feud with his teammates. Director Klinsman plans to meet Kim Min-jae in person to hear his grievances and put their heads together to find a reasonable solution.
Head coach Klinsmann, who moved to Germany again, met Lee Jae-seong (Mainz) and Jung Woo-young (Freiburg) one after another. Watch the match between Mainz and Bayern Munich on the 22nd, and Freiburg and Schalke 04 on the 23rd, closely examining the movements of the two players.
While Coach Klinsman was traveling in Europe, the national team coaches residing in the region decided to join in appropriately to add strength. The England and Scotland schedule will be accompanied by Austrian assistant coach Andreas Herzog. In Italy, coach Paolo Stringara (Italy) assists. When I stay in Germany, goalkeeper coach Andreas Köpke (Germany) accompanies me.
During the same period, K-Leagues are taken care of by Technical Advisor Cha Du-Ri and Coach Michael Kim. Coach Stringara decided to separately manage Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) and Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), whose visits were canceled due to the wrong movement.
Coach Klinsman, who has completed his European schedule, calls all the coaching staff to Korea at the end of this month for a strategy meeting. It is expected to be a place to check major preparations ahead of the Asian Cup finals and draw a blueprint for the A-match evaluation in June.
Next month, we will focus on preparing for the Asian Cup finals in earnest. He will participate as a member of the FIFA TSG (Technical Study Group) at the FIFA Post World Cup Coaching Forum, which opens in Doha, Qatar on the 7th. On the 11th, they will check the matchup directly at the draw ceremony for the AFC Asian Cup finals. During his stay in Doha, he will also inspect the base camp that the national team will use during the Asian Cup finals in January next year.
An official from the Korea Football Association said, “After coach Klinsman has a busy schedule between April and May, more specific and clear guidelines will be made for the future national team management plan.” You will be able to see the ‘Real Cleansman 1st Season’.”
