Kicker, a leading German magazine, reported that “former US national team coach Klinsmann is negotiating with the Korea Football Association as a candidate for the new Korean soccer team.”
During the World Cup in Qatar, he was a member of FIFA’s technical research group, and he said, “It must have been through Cha Du-ri, whom I worked with.”
At the same time, he also mentioned the relationship that the Müller Power Enhancement Committee, who is in charge of the current team coach selection process, was a member of the German Football Association.

“(I am) German. I am trying to find a new coach by making full use of my personal network.”
Klinsmann is a legend of German soccer who gave us a painful defeat in the group stage of the 1994 World Cup in the USA. 안전놀이터
As his coach, he led the German national team to third place in the 2006 World Cup held in his home country, and reached the round of 16 at the World Cup in Brazil while coaching the US national team.
However, when leading the German national team in the past, he mainly lived in the United States and did ‘remote command’, and when he took the baton of Hertha Berlin in 2019, he was hardened after two months due to a conflict with the club, and then left the field for about three years. There is a prospect that it will become an obstacle to negotiations.
In addition, Spain’s Asji made mixed predictions that former Spanish national team coach Moreno was a likely candidate for the Korean national team’s command tower.
The Korea Football Association said that the negotiation process is all private, and that it would appoint the next manager by the end of this month, which is the originally expected deadline, or at the latest by the middle of next month when the March A-match list is announced.
