“The biggest reason Korean soccer didn’t make it to the finals is the coach.”
Korea, which was designated as a candidate to win the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, finished the tournament in the semifinals. Foreign reporters in Qatar who showed great interest in Korea even before the start of the tournament all cited coach Jurgen Klinsmann as the reason for Korea’s failure to win the championship. 카지노사이트
The Korean national soccer team, led by Coach Klinsmann, lost 0-2 in the Asian Cup semifinal against Jordan held at the Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar on the 7th (Korean time).
Korea was considered a strong candidate for the championship, with players who played as main players in big European clubs such as Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), and Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain). Expectations were high because all of the key players showed off their peak skills for their teams before the competition.
However, as the saying goes, ‘It’s worth it to be able to put together a horse’, and the team’s bid to win the Asian Cup after 64 years was canceled due to an incompetent coach who could not utilize the strengths of the players. The results were disappointing, but the performance throughout the competition was also disastrous. The offense was dull and the defense was disorganized and lacked organization.
Coach Jürgen Klinsmann of the Korean national soccer team, ahead of the semifinals against Jordan in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup, is having a team meeting with players at the Al Egla Training Center in Doha, Qatar, on the 3rd (local time).
Foreign reporters who had been watching the Korean game with anticipation in this tournament also did not hide their disappointment.
Iraq’s Azzaman reporter Ahmadi Haji said, “Korea is a team with several star players representing Asia, including Son Heung-min, Hwang Hee-chan, Kim Min-jae, and Lee Kang-in. However, the performance we showed in this tournament was disappointing throughout,” he said. “We struggled in the group stage against Jordan, and it did not change in the semifinals. “There was no tactical development,” he criticized.
He continued, “The biggest problem is the coach who coaches the team. “Coach Klinsmann did not show his smarts throughout this tournament,” he said. “He was passive, only making changes when he conceded a goal. He claimed, “The greatest responsibility for Korea’s elimination lies with Coach Klinsmann.”
After the quarterfinals, “Korea is the team that is attracting the most attention here (Qatar) right now. “Wherever you go, there is only talk about Korea,” said Milat Azami, a reporter for Iran’s Mizan News Agency who focused on the Klinsmann. “It’s a pity that Korea didn’t make it to the finals. However, looking at the performance, it is a natural result. “Jordan was a better team than Korea,” he said.
Mohammad Zamani, a reporter for Iranian media outlet Football iNet, said, “Korea’s problem is clear. “Director,” he said, “Korea was scary during the time of coach Paulo Bento, but not now. I think this is an opponent that any team can face without being intimidated. “Korea has lost its former image as a powerhouse,” pointed out Coach Klinsmann. In the past, under Coach Bento, Korea recorded 1 win, 2 draws, and no loss against Iran.
Meanwhile, Coach Klinsmann will board a plane to Korea with the players on the 8th. Coach Klinsmann expressed his intention to continue leading Korea, saying, “I will prepare for the World Cup qualifiers in Korea.” 토토사이트 순위
