As if focusing on the South Korean national team wasn’t enough, he also serves as a broadcast panelist and commentator. This is his current address, where he is in charge of the Korean national team at the highest level. Fans have even mocked Jürgen Klinsmann by calling him a “streamer”.
The Korean Football Association appointed Klinsmann after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Klinsmann, who was criticized for his lack of tactical skills during his time with the German national team, was replaced by Andreas Harelchuk, who did quite well with the US national team.카지노
But things got off to a rocky start. It wasn’t like when Paulo Bento was appointed, where he handed over the baton after thinking about what kind of soccer to play and what kind of process to use to prepare for the next four years. The appointment process was fraught with question marks, and Michael Muller, who took over as chairman of the Power Enhancement Committee in a hurry, was consistent with alumni answers.
Despite the question marks, Klinsmann’s eloquent interview put the public opinion to rest. In March, he showed off his “central hand” against South American powerhouses Uruguay and Colombia. However, in June, they created a jagged atmosphere with their colorless appearance against Peru and El Salvador.

After not winning until June, Coach Klinsmann held a press conference and stood in front of the media. In short, he wanted to hear the roadmap for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in January and the 2026 North American World Cup, but he only introduced the coaching staff and listed his impressions of the Korean national team so far. When asked what colors he plans to bring to the team, he was noncommittal, saying, “We’ll have to wait and see.”
It makes sense. Revealing all of your future ideas and plans in public can be a bit of a poison pill. We’re not even in the World Cup qualifying phase yet, and the honeymoon effect is still going on, so it makes sense to wait.
However, his recent behavior raises questions about his authenticity as the head coach of the Korean national team. Instead of staying in South Korea to build and think about the team, as most foreign coaches do, he has been flying to the United States to spend time.

Recently, I spent quite a bit of time as a panelist on the global sports media ‘ESPN’. He mentioned Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae, but he also listed overseas soccer issues such as Lionel Messi and Harry Kane. He even went so far as to predict a win, draw, or loss between Tottenham and Manchester United in the second round of the Premier League.
The same goes for the head coach. Herzog joined ESPN Austria’s commentary team for the 2023-24 season. The idea is to get a first-hand look at the European game, but it also means he’ll have to spend more time preparing commentary for each week’s games.
Currently, Klinsmann’s division is split. Coach Michael Kim and Advisor Chadoori are in charge of Korea and the K League, while the rest of the team watches players in Europe. However, it is questionable whether it is necessary to travel to Europe to watch talented players such as Kim Min-jae, Son Heung-min, and Lee Kang-in. Moreover, Chaduri’s advisors do not accompany him to the World Cup after the Asian Cup.

At a time when Korea needs to think about promising domestic combinations based on the existing foundation of the overseas team, the head coach and assistant coach are broadcasting. Some fans have even mocked them as ‘streamer-type managers’. It’s understandable since they haven’t shown any clear performance or tactical colors. If the lack of focus on the national team continues, it will be difficult for the players to trust Klinsmann.
“We will win the Asian Cup,” Klinsmann said confidently, always with a smile. It’s hard to believe that confidence is unfounded when you have a golden generation that is performing at the highest level in Europe.
