German netizens are ridiculing the appointment of manager Jurgen Klinsmann by the Korea Football Association.
On the afternoon of the 27th, the Korea Football Association officially announced Klinsman’s appointment as national team manager. Last week안전놀이터, through German media, news was heard that negotiations were coming to an end, and the association even made an official announcement that day.
Klinsmann won the 1990 World Cup in Italy during his active career and is one of the legends of German football who, as the coach of the German national team, finished third in the 2006 World Cup in Germany. He also served as manager of the prestigious Bayern Munich, where he worked as a player, and climbed to the command tower of the US national team to advance to the round of 16 at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
But the voices of concern are loud. In fact, it is difficult to say that coach Klinsmann meets all five (professionalism, experience, motivation, teamwork ability, and environmental factors) if he meets the selection standards set by Mueller National Strengthening Committee. It is true that the motivation aspect is left to the judgment of the National Team Strengthening Committee, and even if the environmental factors are resolved through negotiations, the remaining three areas cannot be considered to be in line.
How will Klinsmann’s home country, Germany, react? Germany’s ‘Kicker’ shared the news of Klinsmann’s appointment to the Korean national team through their Instagram account. The reaction is explosive.
One soccer fan commented, “RIP Korea.” Another mocked, “What was Korea thinking when they appointed Klinsman?” Klinsmann is a person who is treated as an outcast in Germany. The reason is because of what happened in the past.
Three years ago, Klinsmann took over as manager of Hertha Berlin, but resigned after only three months. Controversy arose when he unilaterally notified his resignation through his Facebook live without prior coordination with his club. Since then, it is Klinsman who has not been able to set foot in the German football world, and it seems that he does not understand why Korea appointed him.
