“Germany needs an experienced coach Klinsmann.”
German Foosball announced on the 12th (hereinafter Korean time), “The German Football Association dismissed coach Hansi Flick for the first time in its 123-year history. And they are immediately looking for a new director. “Suggestions are coming from many quarters, but not all of them can be taken seriously,” he said. “Currently, a new group of managerial candidates is emerging, and legend Berti Vogz is showing support for Coach Klinsmann’s return as coach of the German national team.”
Earlier on the 10th, the German Football Federation announced the news of coach Flick’s farewell. The reason is the crushing defeat in the game against Japan. Germany, who lost 1-2 to Japan in the group stage of the 2022 Qatar World Cup last year, bowed again in a friendly match against Japan on the 9th. We lost by a score of 1-4. My pride was completely destroyed at home. Germany had a high market share, but Japan took over the substance.
Coach Flick, who was unable to lead Germany to the round of 16 due to the loss to Japan in the World Cup, ended up resigning as coach, inflicting yet another humiliation on Germany.
In particular, coach Flick suffered the disgrace of being dismissed for the first time in the 123-year history of German soccer. Germany, which has a vacant head coach, had Rudi Voehler, director of the German Football Association, take the helm in the friendly match against France held on the 13th, and defeated France, breaking away from a slump of three consecutive losses in international matches.
With the new coach of the German national team receiving attention, Vogts recommended Coach Klinsmann as the new coach through the German media RP Online. Vogtz has a special relationship with coach Klinsmann.
Vogtz, who played a key role in winning the 1974 Germany World Cup during his active career, coached the German national team and won the World Cup together with Klinsmann, who played as a striker, at the 1990 Italy World Cup.
He served as coach at Euro 96 and led Germany to victory. Vogtz led the German national team to the 1994 U.S. World Cup and 1998 France World Cup, and Coach Klinsmann played an active role as Germany’s main striker at the time. Vogtz also served as technical director during Coach Klinsmann’s tenure as head coach of the U.S. national team.
“We need a coach who can inspire the players,” said Vogts. “Most coaches who can inspire have a lot of experience. An experienced coach should lead the German national team rather than a young, new coach. Euro 2024 is an important tournament for us.” “This is an opportunity to right many of the things that have gone wrong in recent years.”
In particular, Pogtz recommended Coach Klinsmann in earnest.
토토사이트 Vogts mentioned the candidates, saying, “Coach Klopp and Coach Klinsmann have the passion and charisma to revitalize German football,” and expressed his opinion about Coach Klinsmann, “If the German Football Association requests it, I think he will accept it.”
In addition, Vogts emphasized that young former players should join as coaches, saying, “Ballack, Schweinsteiger and Lahm can definitely bring about change.”
Vogts emphasized again, “German soccer fans remember the 2006 World Cup in Germany, where Klinsmann was their savior. Klinsmann also showed passion as coach of the U.S. national team. That’s what we need right now.”
On the 11th, German media Bild included Coach Klinsmann when introducing 10 candidates for the next manager of the German national team. In Germany, Klopp, Sammer, Nagelsmann, etc. are being mentioned as suitable candidates for the next German national team coach.
Coach Klinsmann began his career as a leader by taking charge of the German national team in 2004. The German national team, which was on a downward trend at the time, ranked third in the 2006 Germany World Cup under the Klinsmann regime.
After the competition, Coach Klinsmann moved the stage to the club team. He conducted Munich. However, due to his poor performance, he resigned from his position without completing one year.
Coach Klinsmann also led the U.S. national soccer team. He took up his post in July 2011 and commanded it until November 2016. He led a team for the longest period in his career. In the process, he compiled notable achievements, including winning the Gold Cup in 2013 and advancing to the round of 16 of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
However, as a manager since then, he has not achieved any notable results. He was sent to Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga as a firefighter in November 2019, but left the club after two months and is now leading the national soccer team. Coach Klinsmann, who is at the center of the ‘home controversy’, has a contract with the Korea Football Association until the 2026 North and Central America World Cup.
Of course, Coach Klinsmann returns to Korea.
The Korea Football Association said on the 13th, “Coach Klinsmann originally planned to watch Bayern Munich’s game in the German Bundesliga this week in person, visit a European club, hold a meeting with officials, and conduct an on-site analysis with the European coaching staff ahead of the international match in October before returning home. “However, we changed the schedule at today’s coaching staff meeting to begin the process of checking K-League players before announcing the list in October.”
As a result, Coach Klinsmann and the domestic players will return to Korea via Incheon International Airport at 3:55 pm on the 14th.
After his return, Coach Klinsmann is expected to respond to the two-game series away to Europe in September and the recent controversy over remote working.
Initially, Coach Klinsmann planned to travel from England to Munich on the 16th to watch the match between Munich, Kim Min-jae’s team, and Leverkusen.
Afterwards, he was likely to return to Korea at the end of the month after observing additional European players.
However, at a coaching staff meeting that day, he changed his plan to observe K-League players first instead of inspecting European players.
The exact reason is unknown, but it appears that he decided to return home as criticism grew stronger due to the recent controversy over foreign oil and sabotage.
Coach Klinsmann achieved his first win in six games since taking office, winning 1-0 in a friendly match against Saudi Arabia held at St. James Park in Newcastle, England on the 13th.
However, public opinion is still negative due to his poor performance and various noises.
