Klinsmann believes that criticism is a coach’s fate, and their goal is to win the Asian Cup.
“It’s a coach’s destiny to be criticized. I will be properly judged at the Asian Cup.”
South Korea national soccer team coach Jürgen Klinsmann said he accepts the “bitter words” directed at him as part of his job and is determined to be properly evaluated at the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in Qatar in January-February next year.
Klinsmann’s South Korea will kick off their two-match September A-Match series against Wales at 3:45 a.m. KST on Aug. 8 at Cardiff City Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
Klinsmann is in desperate need of a win for Masu-girl, as the team has gone winless (2 draws and 2 losses) in four A matches since he took over.
Moreover, there is pressure to produce a different result from the previous A matches, as he has spent more time abroad than at home and has been criticized for ‘remote control coaching’ and ‘working from home’.
However, Klinsmann seems to be more focused on winning the Asian Cup, which is what he said he wanted to do when he took charge of the Korean national team.
At the official press conference for the match against Wales on Sept. 6, Klinsmann addressed the recent criticism directed at him.
“I think the team has played well in the last four A matches,” Klinsmann said in a video of the press conference published by online media outlet Football Daily, “and although we didn’t win, I was pleased with the way we dominated the game in general.”
“I want to see the team improve every game, and I am desperate for a win,” he said, “but it must come at the Asian Cup. Korea hasn’t won the Asian Cup in over 60 years. (Winning the Asian Cup) is the real goal.”
Klinsmann added: “Even if we won the first four games, there would have been criticism. Criticism is part of being a coach. You always have to live with criticism,” he said, adding, “The criticism itself doesn’t bother me. It has been a good experience so far. I’ve seen the team grow step by step through criticism.”
“I know that social media (social networking services) in Korea is tough. “I know what the team needs to do now and what we need to strive to achieve,” he said, adding, “There is a lot of advice around. The real test will come at the Asian Cup in Qatar.”
Meanwhile, the British public broadcaster BBC also published an article highlighting Klinsmann, who has yet to win a game since his appointment.
In an article titled “Is Klinsmann’s winless run coming to an end?” on July 7, the BBC reported that not only has Klinsmann failed to win an A-match in the last six months, but he has also come under pressure for the way he has managed the national team.
“Klinsmann has spent just 67 days in South Korea in the past six months,” 카지노사이트가이드 the media outlet noted, “which doesn’t sit well with the country’s work culture and has led to criticism of his decision not to hold a press conference to announce the team’s roster.”
