When will Jürgen Klinsmann get his first win?
The South Korean national soccer team, led by Klinsmann, will take on Saudi Arabia in a friendly at St. James’ Park in Newcastle, England, on March 13 at 1:30 a.m. ET.
Saudi Arabia has recently changed coaches. Roberto Mancini, who has been recognized for his leadership of the Italian national team, has taken the reins. They are under pressure after failing to capitalize on a 1-3 loss in their debut against Costa Rica and will be looking to get back on the winning track against South Korea.
South Korea are also in a hurry. They are winless in five matches since Klinsmann took over, with three draws and two losses.
With three draws and two losses, Klinsmann has gone five games without a win since taking over, setting a significant record for the longest winless streak by a foreign manager in South Korea.
Along with the results, he has been criticized for his lack of content. The lack of a clear philosophy and color scheme has been criticized.
Klinsmann was criticized for his frequent traveling and working from home during his time with the German and U.S. national teams, and the same thing is happening here.
Klinsmann’s promise to “stay in Korea” has not been fulfilled. He spent most of his time in the U.S., where he has family, except for March and June, when he was at the A-match.
His frequent travels have not escaped criticism. Klinsmann’s main focus was not on the Korean national team.
By focusing on interviews with foreign media about Harry Kane and Lionel Messi’s arrival in the U.S. and attending the UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage draw, Klinsmann has been criticized for being irresponsible as the head coach of the Korean national team 메이저사이트.
In addition, the press conference for the selection of the national team players was replaced by a press release, showing a lack of sincerity.
British media outlet ‘Sports Mall’ predicted a 0-0 draw, saying, “Neither South Korea nor Saudi Arabia have been at their best during this A-match. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the stalemate end,” and predicted that the game would not be easy.
“Especially when you consider that South Korea lacked skill against Wales,” he added.
Klinsmann is expected to make changes.
“Klinsmann may change his attacking approach to a 4-4-2 system by introducing Hwang Hee-chan in place of Cho Kyu-sung, given his lack of impressive performances against Wales,” said ‘Sports Mall’.
“Captain Son Heung-min, who recently scored a hat-trick against Burnley, is likely to be Hwang’s attacking partner.”
