“No matter how famous you are, if you don’t have a trophy…” Klinsman, instill Son Heung-min’s will to win the Asian Cup

Ahead of the challenge to win the Asian Cup, which has not been in Korea since 1960, national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann seems to be giving strong motivation to the players.

The Korea Football Association (KFA) held the 2023 KFA Awards at the Mayfield Hotel in Oebalsan-dong, Seoul on the 2nd, attended by more than 200 soccer officials and representative players participating in the Qatar Asian Cup. 안전 토토사이트

Chung Mong-kyu, chairman of the Korea Football Association, told reporters before the ceremony, “The Asian Cup is about 10 days away. We ask the whole nation to support us and give us enthusiastic support so that we can try to win the title again for the first time in 64 years.”

Korea has not won a championship since 1956 or 1960. The last time Korea was close to winning a championship was in 2015 in Australia. The team fought hard for extra time and lost the title to Australia. He is an “Asian tiger,” but without winning, he is nothing but a paper tiger.

Coach Jurgen Klinsmann said, “Korea can definitely win the championship. The reporters will also go to the finals, so please book the accommodation until the end.”

Chung introduced an anecdote that shows Klinsmann’s confidence. “I heard it from Klinsmann,” Chung said. “I heard it from captain Son Heung-min. No matter how famous he is, it’s useless if he doesn’t have a trophy,” he said, adding that he instilled in Son, who is far from winning the title at Tottenham Hotspur and the national team, what his goal consciousness is.

Everyone around him wants to win the championship, but Chung is cautious about talking about it. However, he said he trusts Klinsmann and the players, adding, “After all, the players make it. Klinsmann also trusts the players. I hope they produce good results because they all perform well.”

At the awards ceremony, “Monster” Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich) and Cheon Garam (Hwacheon KSPO) were selected as the men’s and women’s best players this year by voting from the association’s technology development committee, national power enhancement committee, and media outlets.

After the event, the team will fly to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, where it will train for. It will have an exhibition game with Iraq on June 6 and arrive in Doha, Qatar on June 10.
