[Goal.com] Correspondent Kang Dong-hoon = Coach Jurgen Klinsmann (58, Germany) took office as the new head coach of the Korean national soccer team. However, the controversy over the seniority continues. This is because there are not one or two ‘doubts’ when looking at his actions as a leader.
On the 27th, the Korea Football Association (KFA) said, “The Korean national football team has appointed coach Klinsman as the new head coach.” According to the agreement of both sides, we have decided not to reveal it.”스포츠토토
He added, “The coaching staff to assist coach Klinsman will be confirmed through discussion sooner or later. Also, living in Korea during his tenure was added as a condition of the contract.”
What I feared happened. Coach Klinsmann took the helm of the Korean national soccer team. When the news that he emerged as a strong candidate came out last week, Michael Müller (58, Germany), the head of the National Power Enhancement Committee, argued one after another that he did not meet the conditions presented, but was eventually appointed as the command tower.
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.
For a manager, professionalism means tactical system and philosophy, training system, player management and development, and communication skills. However, since coach Klinsman started his leadership, the evaluation that professionalism is low is the main one.
In fact, when coach Klinsmann was in charge of the German national football team, he was criticized for leaving a large portion of his coaching staff to work through the format of receiving reports from the United States. In particular, it is a famous anecdote that he entrusted the tactical system to coach Joachim Löw (63, Germany), who was then head coach.
Philip Lahm (39, Germany), a defender representing the 21st century, also criticized in his autobiography, “In fact, I only trained physically under coach Klinsmann. There was no tactical training. The players had to gather separately before the game to discuss how to play.” there is a bar
He is not very experienced as a director. Coach Klinsmann spent two years with the German national soccer team, nine months with Bayern Munich (Germany) and five years with the US national soccer team. Even if he puts all of his managerial career together, it is less than 10 years.
Of course, the part that he experienced in the World Cup twice (2006 and 2014) can be highly evaluated. However, since he has not experienced various leagues or competitions while living as a leader, it is impossible to say with certainty when considering whether he can solve unexpected variables while skillfully coping with them.
Not only that, but he has no experience leading a team in recent years, so a ‘question mark’ is attached to his ability to command in battle. He has been a savage since leaving the United States national soccer team in November 2016. Although he has held the baton of Hertha Berlin (Germany) since November 2019, it is ambiguous to recognize it as his career because he left after announcing his resignation through personal social network service (SNS) in less than three months.
Regarding his teamwork ability, coach Klinsmann had several conflicts with his players due to poor communication. In particular, when he was leading the U.S. national soccer team, he criticized some veteran players when they returned to their homeland after liquidating the European stage. He also caused controversy with remarks that disrespected American football.
Considering these points, it is true that coach Klinsman is uneasy about whether he will be able to properly lead the Korean national soccer team. And now it is the turn of Müller, the head of the National Team Strengthening Committee, to answer. We have to convince the soccer world by transparently revealing how we evaluated each standard, and explaining the background and reason for the appointment.
