Jürgen Klinsmann is in a situation where the public is angry due to various controversies. He continued to be criticized for his incomprehensible work style and controversial interviews. The controversy over foreign travel is ongoing, and despite the fact that Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and Vietnam have all been caught, voices of criticism have not declined. Still full of doubts and the gaze is not good. 토토
At the Seoul World Cup Stadium, where the match against Tunisia was held, there were boos toward Klinsmann. There was no booing at Suwon World Cup Stadium, but there was a cold response. It contrasted completely with cheering the players. Despite winning both Tunisia and Vietnam in Korea and scoring a total of 10 points, the evaluation shows no signs of change.
Apart from external criticism, the evaluation of Clinsman seems to be good within the team. Cho Kyu-sung, who appeared on the YouTube program Eastar TV, said, “The atmosphere of the team is really good. Klinsmann sets the tone for the player,” he said. Son Heung-min responded to the ‘controversy over martial arts’. In an interview after the match against Tunisia, Lee Kang-in said, “The coach gives the players freedom of freedom. It was triggered by saying, “I suggested changing seats with Lee Jae-sung’s brother and accepted, so my performance got better.”
There was a controversy that Klinsmann actually did not engage in tactics and left it to the player. Son Heung-min said, “Actually, there are a lot of people who think it’s too bad. They are all players who can play in that position, so they can do it differently depending on the situation. I don’t think it’s important to play in any position. What promised play is most important when you are in that position. All players are capable, but there are players who do it differently when they go out or come into the center. It is part of the consultation with the coach, and the players also want to play what they are good at on the field and what they want to play,” he said.
“It’s the same for me, and when it doesn’t work out, I go down and move, and sometimes Lee Jae-sung goes up and does it. I hope you don’t think too sharply. Obviously, these plays can be made because of the players’ ability. I think it’s definitely an advantage. “I don’t think there’s a big problem if you’re well aware of what role to play when you’re in this position,” he added. It is captain Son Heung-min who defended Klinsmann.
Kim Min-jae said, “Honestly, I don’t think there has been a director who has had good public opinion. The result is what the players make. The coach’s role will also be important, but it will be important for the players to do well and turn the mood around,” he said. Kim Joo-sung said, “You are very considerate of the players. Make sure the players are always comfortable. I feel very comfortable because they give a lot of consideration to the players for psychological parts and rest. “I think that’s why the players can follow and trust well and do it like today,” he said.
Hwang In-beom talked about what kind of tactical direction Clinsman has. “When you go from defense to attack, you think positioning is very important even if it is taken away. He said very importantly whether or not he decides to make a reverse pressure. He doesn’t want to give a compact center when defending. As it was before, he emphasizes the second ball fight a lot. It was the same during this training. He emphasized a lot, so he tried to bring it to our ball somehow. Although I didn’t play, I had confidence and belief that I could be a team that would not be pushed back in numerical or midfield battles if I faced any team because the match against Tunisia went well. I’m looking forward to it a lot in the future,” he said.
As such, the evaluation of seeing from the outside and experiencing and speaking directly from the inside are completely different. The team is showing their support in a relaxed atmosphere. Manager Klinsmann also silenced the criticism a little bit as he was in a situation where he was producing results for now.
What we have to watch now is the actual outcome. The second qualifying round for the 2026 North, Central and U.S. Asia will be held in November, and the Qatar Asian Cup will be held in January next year. Leaving the results of the warm-up matches behind, the public will accept the way Klinsmann works and interviews only when he performs well in the two competitions and performs well.
