Jürgen Klinsmann, has a hard time hiding his brashness

Jürgen Klinsmann, 60, has a hard time hiding his brashness.

In an interview with Austria’s Servus TV on Wednesday (Feb. 23), Klinsmann called his time with the South Korean national team “fantastic” and a “great experience.

Klinsmann was fired in February after a poor Asian Cup performance.

South Korea’s squad was one of the strongest in history. The attack is led by Tottenham captain Son Heung-min and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) star Lee Kang-in, while the defense is anchored by world-class defender Kim Min-jae. In addition to these players, there are many others who have played key roles for European clubs, including Hwang Hee-chan, Wolverhampton Wanderers’ top scorer this season, Jung Woo-young, VfB Stuttgart’s No. 10, and Lee Jae-sung, FSV Mainz 05.

Korean soccer was considered to be at its peak.

However, the ‘Klinsmanns’ showed their problems from the first match against Bahrain in the group stage of the tournament. Their performances against Jordan, Malaysia in the second and third rounds, Saudi Arabia in the round of 16, and Australia in the quarterfinals were all disastrous. The quarterfinal match against Jordan was one of the most memorable in Asian soccer history.

“The team had everything it took to make it to the quarterfinals of the World Cup, and that’s why we wanted to keep doing it,” Klinsmann said, speaking just two months after his dismissal.

“The performance at the 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar was the best Korea has had in the last 15 years,” Klinsmann said. But in Korean culture, someone had to take responsibility. The players had to move on to the next tournament, 안전놀이터 추천 so the coaching staff had to take responsibility,” he said, adding that he felt his dismissal was unfair.

“I learned Korean for two years, so I could read words in a limited way, but I didn’t know what was going on among the players. I learned that in Korean culture, the older person is always right, even if they are wrong,” he said, commenting on the ‘age culture’ in Korea.

As for the work-from-home controversy that followed him throughout his tenure in South Korea,

Klinsmann explained that he didn’t want to miss a day of the year and traveled to observe players abroad.

Klinsmann turned a blind eye to the clash between captain Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in on the eve of the Asian Cup quarterfinal match.

To make matters worse, after the tournament, he brazenly stated in front of the media that “reaching the quarterfinals was a success,” and then backtracked on social media, saying that “the Korean team was divided.” He didn’t even keep his promise to analyze the tournament and headed straight to the United States. The KEPCO was also present via video.
