The person who led the atmosphere of Klinsmann Lake was coach Cha Du-ri. The moment the players arrived, Coach Cha Du-ri made contact with them with a bright smile, and now he has taken on a more important tactical role.
The Korean national soccer team, led by Coach Klinsmann, will play a friendly international match against Tunisia and Vietnam on October 13th and 17th. Klinsmann has played 6 games so far, recording 1 win, 3 draws, and 2 losses. They failed to win against South American and European countries such as Uruguay, Colombia, and Wales, and defeated Saudi Arabia 1-0.
Klinsmann summoned the players on the 9th ahead of the second international match (Tunisia, Vietnam) in October. For this first convocation, 17 players, including ‘Captain’ Son Heung-min, Lee Jae-seong, Lee Kang-in, Jung Woo-young, Seol Young-woo, and Hong Hyun-seok, entered the Paju National Team Training Center (NFC). Oh Hyun-gyu, Hwang Ui-jo, and Hwang Hee-chan, who are playing overseas, joined late on the afternoon of the 9th, while Cho Kyu-seong, Kim Min-jae, Park Yong-woo, and Hwang In-beom will join on the 10th due to their team’s schedule.
The atmosphere was bright. In particular, Coach Cha Du-ri hugged and talked to each of the players entering Paju for the first time in a long time, brightening the atmosphere. Here, Coach Klinsmann also smiled brightly as he asked Seol Young-woo, who won the gold medal at the Asian Games, to show him his medal. However, Seol Young-woo embarrassed Director Klinsmann by saying, “I left it at home.”메이저사이트
The first day’s training focused on recovery. In particular, Son Heung-min, who suffered from a groin injury, focused on recovery and improved his condition by cycling alone. Except for Son Heung-min, the 17 players all ran together after lightly stretching. Afterwards, we continued training with a ball and light games.
Coach Cha Du-ri’s role was very important at the training ground as well. This is because head coach Andreas Herzog is likely to be absent from this convocation due to family issues. An official from the Korea Football Association explained, “Coach Hairchalk’s mother is in critical condition. He decided to join when he gets better, but it is not an easy situation. Coincidentally, his father also has a broken leg.”
Training was centered around coach Cha Du-ri. Since not all players were called up, they focused on recovery, but coach Cha Du-ri talked with coach Klinsmann and prepared for the two-game international match in October. These are two games where you can see Coach Cha Du-ri’s tactical ability. So far, offensive tactics were in charge of Herzog, and defensive tactics were in charge of Coach Cha Du-ri, but with Herzog unable to join, Coach Cha Du-ri’s importance grew.
In the meantime, Coach Cha Du-ri acted as an advisor in the early days of Klinsmann, mainly watching the K-League and giving advice to Coach Klinsmann. However, ahead of the international trip to Europe in September, he changed his position to coach and coached the players from the bench.
Now his importance has increased. In the absence of Herzog, it has become important to lead the national team’s mood and demonstrate tactical capabilities.
