Han Joon-hee, vice chairman of the Korea Football Association (KFA), strongly criticized the attitude of South Korea’s national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who returned home through Incheon International Airport after the Asian Cup on the 8th.
Appearing on SBS radio “Kim Tae-hyun’s Political Show” on the 9th, Han said, “Personally, I felt (Klinsman) lacked empathy and work ethics.”
Asked by a reporter about his future career at a press conference in Korea, Klinsmann replied, “I will leave the country (to the United States) around next week. I will go and take a short break, then move on to Europe to see the schedule of Lee Kang-in, Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae and other players and watch the game.”
“I respect your thoughts and criticisms, but I want to tell you that there will be no change in the way I work and the way I think the national team coach works,” he added. In other words, he has confirmed that he will continue working from home in the U.S., which has been controversial.
“Among the coaches who have played for the Korean national team, Bonfrere and Stielike also had a desire to succeed in the Korean national team and continue their leadership careers,” Vice Chairman Han said. “However, it is a question mark whether Klinsmann has aspirations and ambitions for a leadership career, regardless of his tactics.”
Asked if he should replace Klinsmann, vice chairman Han replied, “I am judging that the risk is greater if the judgment on Klinsmann, which I have so far, continues.” Currently, Klinsmann’s contract period is until July 2026, when the North Korea-China-U.S. World Cup ends.
