Klinsmann ‘away’ too often, is varsity remote management normal?

Someone once said that a bad leader is “uninformed,” “hierarchical,” and “always away.” Well, there’s a similar person in Korean soccer. It’s the national team coach, who unfortunately has the most important role after the president of the federation.

Jürgen Klinsmann (59, Germany) flew back to the United States today to be with his family. He was gone again as soon as he returned from his summer vacation on June 24. Three days after his arrival, he watched a friendly match between Team K-League and Atletico Madrid (Spain) at the Seoul World Cup Stadium and didn’t even bother with the K-League, which resumed at the weekend.

Of course, a national team coach needs a break. But Klinsmann’s breaks have been too frequent and too long. Since taking charge of the national team for the two March A matches against Colombia and Uruguay, he has spent most of his time abroad. He left for the U.S. on April 1, shortly after his debut, and returned to check on the European side; he stayed in Korea for a short time to participate in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup group stage draw, and then left again for the U.S. After two A matches against Peru and El Salvador in June, he left for a summer vacation.

The reason given by the Korean Football Association was always the same. “Coach Klinsmann is not only resting in the U.S., but also ‘working remotely,'” but there is no way to verify his attendance. It’s hard to imagine how productive a coaching staff meeting would be if it were held on a PC screen.

Instead of Klinsmann, the domestic coaching staff (Coach Michael Kim and Technical Advisor Chaduri) were in charge of checking the domestic squad. In this process, players unknown to the coach are sometimes selected for the national team. This was the case with Ahn Hyun-beom (Jeonbuk Hyundai), who made his A-match debut in June, and Klinsmann said at the time that he hadn’t seen him play.

Nevertheless, Klinsmann has no domestic schedule for the time being. From the U.S., he’ll head straight to Europe to check out the Europeans, including Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), and Lee Jae-sung (Mainz), before meeting the Taegeuk Warriors in September for their first A match against Wales. It is not unreasonable to say that “only Europeans are in the coach’s eyes”.카지노

The promise to live in Korea and integrate into the culture was hollow. The federation signed Klinsmann in a rash move that destroyed a sound coach selection process. It’s worth remembering the past. Van Marwijk (NED), who was once considered a candidate for the job, was unable to accompany Klinsmann because of a “request to work from home”. Klinsmann’s embarrassing failure to report a win in his first four games in charge is quickly turning public opinion against him.
