Director Klinsmann smiles

Coach Jurgen Klinsmann of the national soccer team, who finished the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, is giving his position to reporters after returning to Korea through Incheon International Airport Passenger Terminal 1 on the afternoon of the 8th.

The national soccer team, which attempted to win the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years but was eliminated in the semifinals after being caught by Jordan, returned home.

The national soccer team led by coach Jürgen Klinsmann (Germany) returned through Incheon International Airport on the 8th after finishing the 2023 Asian Cup held in Qatar.

European league players, including captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), returned directly to their respective teams from Qatar, and on this day, 13 players and Klinsmann arrived at Incheon Airport. Coaches, including the manager, came in.

The national team lost 0-2 in the semifinals of the Asian Cup against Jordan held at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar on the morning of the 7th, Korean time, and ended the tournament without advancing to the finals.

Ahead of this tournament, Korea had many players playing in the European big leagues, led by Son Heung-min, and was evaluated as having the best power of all time, and was expected to win the Asian Cup. However, after losing twice in a row in 1956 and 1960, the dream of regaining the top spot was not achieved again.

Coach Klinsmann, who has been criticized for approaching the tournament without any special measures or preparations other than relying on the skills of ‘world-class‘ players, has received more criticism after the semi-final defeat against Jordan, and there are even calls for his resignation.

Director Klinsmann reveals his position

At a press conference after the match against Jordan, Coach Klinsmann said, “As a coach, if you don’t achieve the goal you wanted, of course you have to take responsibility. Since we didn’t achieve the goal, we need to analyze it more. We need to look back on all the games in the tournament. “He has not announced his intention to resign.

The national team is now preparing for the international match period in March.

During the March international match period, two 2026 North and Central America World Cup Asia second qualifying matches will be held.

Korea, which took the lead in Group C (6 points) after winning two consecutive games against Singapore (5-0) and China (3-0) last November, played a home game against Thailand on March 21 and then traveled to Thailand on the 26th. I’m planning on going to the game. The national team is expected to be called up on March 18th. 토토사이트
