Coach Jurgen Klinsmann transplants attacking soccer to Korea. At the training ground, he meticulously writes down something in his notebook and draws a sketch for the Korean national team. I am filling more things with close communication with ‘captain’ Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham Hotspur).
The Korean national team drew 2-2 with Colombia at the Ulsan Munsu Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 24th in the ‘Hana Bank Invitational National Team Friendly Match’. It was Klinsmann’s debut as manager, who took over as manager Paulo Bento last month.
Coach Klinsman emphasized attacking football during his senior press conference. He was a striker, so he wanted a multi-goal win rather than a one-goal game. It was difficult for him to put on tactical colors in a short time, but he scored two goals only in the first half with concise attack work and Son Heung-min free roll against Colombia.
It was regrettable that consecutive goals were lost in the second half, but an aggressive color was added to Bento’s pressure and build-up. As Kim Min-jae and Kim Young-kwon emphasized, “From a defensive standpoint, we want a 4-0 victory rather than a 4-3 victory,” if solidity is added in defense, a stable multi-score victory can be expected.
Manager Klinsman wrote down something in the notebook he held in his hand at the training ground and checked it. It was the same in the open training held at Ulsan Munsu Stadium on the 25th. It’s an open training for fans, so there won’t be any tactical parts, but the ‘secret note’ that will contain the roadmap for the next four years was clear.
I also had a long conversation with captain Son Heung-min. While the national team players were practicing shooting, coach Klinsman and Son Heung-min watched the players and talked a lot. Son Heung-min speaks both German and English, so he can freely communicate with coach Klinsmann. The atmosphere was light during the open training, but the conversation between the two was quite serious. 먹튀검증
After resting on the 25th, the Korean national team will return to Paju NFC at 5:00 pm on the 26th to prepare for the game against Uruguay. Since I’m back after vacation, the training on the 26th will be held at 6pm instead of the morning. Coach Klinsman is aiming for his first victory in the game against Uruguay at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.
