Deadline: ‘Asian Cup’…Klinsmann cites ‘fallen’ Germany as example

South Korea’s head coach Jürgen Klinsmann cites Germany as an example of a “paragon of decline” and calls for a positive atmosphere.

Head coach Jürgen Klinsmann, the coaching staff and players returned home on Thursday afternoon via Incheon International Airport Terminal 2 on flight KE908. In September, the team traveled to Europe for the A-Match, where they earned one win and one draw against Wales (0-0 draw) and Saudi Arabia (1-0 win).

Despite the victory, it was definitely a disappointing performance. We had a good lineup, with most of our international players back except for Lee Kang-in. However, the team struggled against Wales and only managed to score one goal against the ‘bad’ Saudis.

The accusations and criticism are bound to mount. Klinsmann has been at his worst since taking over. His time in South Korea has been short and he has been traveling back and forth between the United States and Europe. He chose not to hold a press conference to announce the national team roster and even planned to travel to the Legends Match during the A-Match in September. The decision was made after a meeting with the coaching staff, not because he wanted to. I don’t know if the performance or the result of the match would have been good, but it only made the Korean fans’ stomachs turn.

In this situation, Klinsmann continued to emphasize the Asian Cup in an interview with the press. South Korea will participate in the Asian Cup in Qatar from January next year. The last time they won the tournament was in 1960, so the desire for the trophy is great. Klinsmann is confident that they will prove it with results.

“November is important,” Klinsmann said. “I think the Asian Cup is going to be our benchmark at the end of the day,” said Klinsmann, “and I think our coaching staff is going to be looking at it as our benchmark. Our coaching staff and players are now preparing with the Asian Cup as our benchmark. Of course, if the results are not good, the fans, the media and of course me will criticize. That’s the fate of a coach,” he said emphatically.

He pointed to the German national team, which is in decline, as an example. “Once the big tournament is over and you’re preparing for the next one, I think the team needs positive publicity and reaction, and that’s the only way to be successful. “No matter how strong we are internally, no matter how positive we are externally, if there is a negative public opinion, the team will falter. The German national team is a prime example. They were criticized a lot before the World Cup, there was a lot of negativity, and they ended up going home out of the tournament.”

Germany, the “Chariots of Fire,” have had a storied history. They’ve won the FIFA World Cup four times and finished runner-up four times, and they’ve won the UEFA Euro three times and finished runner-up three times.

Not surprisingly, there has been a recent dark period. Joachim Loew’s long and successful tenure ended with a group stage exit at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and a UEFA Euro 2020 round of 16 exit. Hanzi Flick took over as the next head coach, with little change. The team crashed out of the group stage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and finished third in Group 3 of the UEFA Nations League League A in 2022-23.

Then came the firing squad. Flick’s men have one win, one draw, and four defeats in six A matches in 2023. The last three defeats were particularly disastrous, culminating in a humiliating 1-4 defeat against Japan on October 10. The DFB has since pulled the knife. “We have decided to dismiss coach Flick and two coaches from their duties with immediate effect,” the DFB announced on its official website.바카라사이트

Klinsmann said that in order to avoid going the way of Germany, a positive atmosphere must be created to bring good results. “I don’t think it’s too late to point fingers, to criticize, to blame, to criticize when the results don’t come or when we don’t get the results we want,” he said.

So there you have it. It’s hard to wait now, but Klinsmann said that the Asian Cup will be the benchmark, and if the team doesn’t prove it then, they’ll have to accept their fate.
