Klinsmann and Hwang Seon-hong Sortie Side by Side, Will Only Anger Remain After this Night?
Hwang Seon-hong, who showed below-expected performance against a weak team,
will face Myanmar today, and Klinsmann-ho, who is facing controversy over foreign oil and sabotage,
will challenge for a debut win in only 6 games against Saudi Arabia
Even after this night, will only anger still remain in the hearts of Korean soccer fans?
Klinsmann-ho and Hwang Seon-hong, who raised the fans’ ‘anger gauge’ to the maximum with breathtaking performances, will play one after another on the 12th.
First, the U-22 (under 22) national team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong will play the third round of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 (under 23) Asian Cup qualifier against Myanmar at the Changwon Football Center in Gyeongnam at 8 pm on this day.
This competition is like the first qualifying round for the 2024 Paris Olympics.
Next, the A national team led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann will face Saudi Arabia at St. James Park in Newcastle, England.
It kicks off at 1:30 a.m. on the 13th, Korean time. 바카라사이트
Coach Hwang, who was revered as a legendary goal scorer, became a ‘worry’ for Korean soccer after taking command of the Hangzhou Asian Games national team and the U-22 national team that will participate in the 2024 Paris Olympics.
Hwang Seon-hong‘s performance, which did not improve even after game after game,
reached its lowest point in the match against Qatar on the 6th,
the first game of the three-game preliminary round.
They only ‘sparkled’ in the first half of the first half, but after that,
they failed to show smooth passing play in the midfield and their defense was unstable,
resulting in a complete loss of 0-2.
In the second game, they won 1-0 over Kyrgyzstan,
but considering the objective power difference between the two teams,
it was a score that could never be satisfied.
Myanmar is a team considered ‘weak’ in Asia.
Korea has never lost to Myanmar since the 1970s across all age groups, including the A national team.
If Hwang Seon-hong fails to post a refreshing multiple-goal victory this time,
fan sentiment is expected to worsen further.
Regarding Director Klinsmann, beyond the ‘worsening public opinion’,
the ‘removal theory’ is emerging within half a year of his appointment.
Since taking office, his performance has been so poor that he has only drawn 5 games (3 draws, 2 losses),
there are constant criticisms that there is a problem with his attitude towards the position of ‘Korean soccer’s best coach’.
He caused controversy over his frequent ‘outside work’ and ‘vacation’, and this time he caused a ‘controversy over sabotage’.
During the A-match period, he was included in the list of players for the legendary match between Chelsea (England) and Bayern Munich (Germany), turning the Korean soccer world upside down.
It is difficult to find a precedent for a manager to attend to his personal schedule during an away international match.
Fortunately, Coach Klinsmann did not attend the event,
but just being on the roster when his performance was the worst was enough to infuriate the fans.
There are growing voices criticizing whether the Korea Football Association is properly controlling Coach Klinsmann, an ’employee’.
The only thing that can resolve all this noise is a ‘victory against Saudi Arabia’.
However, as the team has recently lost 5 times in a row and the head coach has been replaced by world-renowned coach Roberto Mancini,
the Saudi players are not expected to back down easily in this game against Korea.
