Jurgen Klinsmann (59, Germany) coach rose to the command tower of the Korean national soccer team. The Korea Football Association officially announced on the afternoon of the 27th that it had appointed Klinsman as the national team manager.
It’s an all-time big name. Manager Klinsman is the ninth foreign manager in history. However, in terms of his career as a player and manager, he could be considered the best. Born in Germany, he made his professional debut at Stuttgarter Kickers and also played for prestigious Bayern Munich. He played for Inter Milan in Serie A and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League. In particular, at Tottenham, he recorded 38 goals and 15 assists in 66 games, showing a high degree of purity.
In his national team stage, he lifted the 1990 World Cup trophy in Italy. At that time, he was the main striker, scoring 3 goals and 2 assists. In 1996 he won the European Championships. Immediately after his retirement, he took over as coach of the German national team and finished third at the 2006 World Cup in his home country.
However, his recent move has not been very good. After stepping down as head coach of the US national team in 2016, he took over as head coach of Hertha Berlin in 2019, but left the team after three months. He did not return to the field for about 3 years after that.
At the end of 2021, in an interview with Britain’s ‘Four Four Two’, he said, “I want to become Tottenham manager” and became a hot topic. He even had discussions with real-life chairman Daniel Levy. Although he did not have a relationship at the time, he showed affection, saying, “Tottenham is a team I always love. Because it is my club. There are many good memories.”
Now, as coach of the Korean national team, he will be coaching Tottenham junior and star player Son Heung-min. British media ‘HITC’ also paid attention to this relationship. The media said, “The captain of the Korean national team is Son Heung-min, who currently has 35 goals in 108 A matches. In Korea, there are many young resources such as Lee Kang-in, Cho Kyu-seong, Kim Min-jae, and Oh Hyun-kyu.” will do,” he said.
Finally, he added, “It’s not realistic for Clinsman to become Tottenham manager right away, but I got to coach Son Heung-min, one of Tottenham’s top stars. It could be the second best.” 카지노
