“We have to prepare for the World Cup.” In response to the laughter controversy over resignation, “it’s natural to congratulate the opponent for their victory.”
The appearance of Korean national team coach Jürgen Klinsmann after losing in the semifinals on this day.
“What I need to do right now is to go back to Korea and analyze this competition in detail and find areas for improvement.”
Korean national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann said this at a press conference after the Asian Cup semifinals against Jordan on the 7th, saying, “Anyway, we have to think about the next time. The 2026 North and Central America World Cup qualifiers must also be held. “There are many tasks ahead of us,” he said. When asked if he had any intention of stepping down since he failed to win the championship he had set for, he drew a line by saying that he had no intention of resigning. The contract period signed between Coach Klinsmann and the Korea Football Association runs until July 2026, when the North and Central America World Cup ends.
Coach Klinsmann said, “If a coach does not achieve his goal, he must take responsibility,” and added, “We need to do more analysis and look back on more games in the future.” Because he failed to win the Asian Cup, his responsibility is not to step down, but to conduct thorough analysis and develop the national team based on this.
After being appointed as the national team’s head coach in February of last year, Coach Klinsmann faced growing criticism from fans for failing to win in five consecutive games (3 draws, 2 losses), saying, “The goal right now is to win the Asian Cup. The Asian Cup is our test. “If our performance in the Asian Cup is not good, then we have no choice but to face a real test.”
Coach Klinsmann said of the smile he showed while greeting the opposing team’s coach after losing in the semifinals against Jordan, “Of course we should congratulate the team that won with good performance. “Our perspectives may be different, but we shook hands and greeted each other with that in mind,” he said. Coach Klinsmann gave his thoughts on the game at the beginning of the press conference and said, “Jordan was a team that fully deserved to win today.” 19가이드03
