Jurgen Klinsmann (59, Germany) is in the mood to lead the Korean national team, which is ranked 25th in the FIFA world rankings. The local media, who know only Klins well, are surprised.

German daily newspaper ‘Behcet’ said on the 23rd (Korean time), “Leave the baton to Klinsmann, who has not been able to find a job for three years and has no (fixed) job? (Really) If he becomes the new coach of the Korean national team, it will be a special return (in a negative sense) as a leader.”

‘Behcet’ is a regional newspaper in Berlin, the capital of Germany. Berlin is home to Hertha in the German Bundesliga (first division), which was coached by Klinsmann from November 2019 to February 2020.

At the time,먹튀검증 coach Klinsman recorded 3 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses in 10 games, including the cup competition. ‘Behcet’ looked back and said, “I suddenly announced that I would be leaving Hertha through a Facebook live video in two months.”

‘Facebook’ is one of the global SNS. Klinsmann logged on as an individual member, not the club’s official account, and disclosed without prior notice that he would no longer take charge of Hertha.

‘Behçet’ did not hide that he still had bad feelings for Klinsman during Hertha days, saying, “It was a lightning-quick, unparalleled announcement of the manager’s resignation.”

Klinsmann was a legendary player who was selected as one of the 125 greatest players of FIFA’s 100th anniversary. After his retirement, he coached ▲ 2004-2006 Germany National Team ▲ 2008-2009 Bayern Munich (Germany) ▲ 2011-2016 USA National Team.

In the 2005 Confederations Cup and the 2006 World Cup, he led Germany to third place in consecutive FIFA competitions. Under Klinsman, the USA won the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup and placed 15th in the 2014 World Cup.

‘Behcet’ said, “Klinsman has a meeting scheduled for the appointment of the Korea Football Association and the national team. He will succeed coach Paulo Bento (54, Portugal), who brought Korea to the round of 16 at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.”

Bento, who has been leading Korea since August 2018, ended his term in December last year. Thanks to the 16th place in the Qatar World Cup, it was ranked 8th in the vote for the National Team Coach of the Year Award by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS).

It is the first foreign coach since Guus Hiddink (77, Netherlands) in 2002 to bring the Korean national team to the World Cup round of 16. Twenty-one years ago, Korea and Japan co-hosted the tournament. This means that Bento is the first foreign coach to lead the team through the away World Cup group stage.

In the World Cup finals in Qatar, Korea drew 16th ranked Uruguay 0-0 and then defeated 9th ranked Portugal 2-1. In the final qualifier, they won 2-0 against Iran, which is ranked 24th in the world.
