Jürgen Klinsmann is headed to the United States after the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar.
A soccer source said on Tuesday, “Klinsmann has left for the United States, where he has family. He is currently back in Korea after the Asian Cup in Qatar to finalize things with the squad and has left for the United States for a short time. The exact timeline of his return has not been determined, but it will not be a long journey.”
South Korea lost 0-2 to Jordan in the quarterfinals of the Qatar Asian Cup 2023 at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar, on July 7 (KST). The loss eliminated South Korea from the tournament.
Klinsmann’s side failed to win the Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years. Klinsmann has been loudly proclaiming his goal since his arrival in March last year, but he failed to fulfill his dream.
When Klinsmann stepped foot on South Korean soil again through Incheon International Airport, he walked through the gate with his usual smile.
It was a close game that will go down in Korean soccer history – and Asian soccer history. Despite missing Kim Min-Jae due to accumulated cautions, South Korea’s defense and performance were abysmal.
Klinsmann walked through the gates at Incheon Airport with his usual smile on his face.
The fans who had traveled to the airport to watch the team enter the country were not amused. And the reaction to Klinsmann was even worse, as he was met with a barrage of insults.
The first question asked of Klinsmann was whether he would ever resign. “Nice question,” he replied, “I’m very happy to be leading this team, and I’m very happy to be leading this team. I want to win as much as you do,” he said.
“I don’t think we achieved what we wanted to achieve with the loss to Jordan. Until we met Jordan, we were bringing results and rewarding them with good performances, but when we met them in the semifinals, they were a much better team. I thought they deserved to be in the final,” he said.
Notably, Klinsmann said, “First of all, I’m leaving the country next week,” adding, “My way of working is not going to change. I respect your thoughts, I respect your criticisms, but I’m not going to change the way I work, the way I think a national team coach should work,” he said.
Klinsmann has already announced his departure. However, the move 바카라사이트 was too quick, and while he still needs time to prepare for a comprehensive evaluation of the Asian Cup, Klinsmann has left for the United States.
According to the KFA, he will evaluate the Asian Cup and review the national team’s management going forward. “After the Lunar New Year holiday, we will hold a strengthening committee. Chairman Michael Mueller and others will attend to analyze the national team and conduct a review of the overall operation. There will also be a meeting centered around Hwang Bo-kwan, the head of the competition technical department.”
“Will coach Klinsmann be part of the meeting?” was the question. The KFA official replied, “The coach will be meeting with the officials. The Power Enhancement Committee is in contact with the members. The time, place, timing, and manner will be decided soon.” “Currently, there are discussions about whether Klinsmann will be part of the power strengthening committee,” the source explained. For now, Klinsmann is headed to the United States at the most critical time for Korean soccer.
