As the national soccer team failed to record any effective shots against Jordan, ranked 87th in the FIFA rankings, the Korea Football Association is calling for responsibility, and Chairman Chung Mong-kyu, the head of the association, remains silent, causing frustration.
In particular, German coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany), who should take responsibility, is smiling and fueling angry fans even after losing the game, while the apology was replaced by players who played with all their might on the ground.
First of all, captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham) left an apology message to fans on his personal SNS on the 8th.
“I wasn’t good enough as a captain, and I didn’t think I was good at leading the team,” Son said. “I was so proud of being a Korean soccer player because you gave me so much love and support despite this situation. Thank you and I’m sorry.”
Key defender Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), who missed the semifinal match against Jordan due to accumulated warnings, also bowed his head, saying, “We didn’t get the results that everyone wanted. I’m sorry that we couldn’t show you as good as our fans supported us.”
On the same day, Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) also bowed his head, saying, “I wanted to show a good performance as a result of the victory, but I feel sorry and sorry that I didn’t help much at the most important moment.”
Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), who showed the best performance among the national team players by scoring three goals and one assist in the tournament, also posted on his SNS on the 10th, “I wanted to repay you with good results, but I’m sorry I couldn’t.”
On the other hand, Klinsmann, who revealed that he had no intention of stepping down on his own in Qatar, responded to a flurry of demands for his resignation at a press conference in his return home with a big smile, drawing anger from soccer fans once again.
More than anything else, there are a flurry of demands that Klinsmann, who is under fire for his lack of communication and reaction at the Asian Cup, be replaced as soon as possible and prepare for the 2026 World Cup in North and Central America. Currently, there is even a national petition calling for Klinsmann’s dismissal.
The Korea Football Association can choose to dismiss Klinsmann first, but the problem is a considerable penalty. It is reported that a penalty of at least 6 billion won will be incurred to dismiss Klinsmann, rather than voluntarily resigning. Some soccer fans are even asking if they should start a campaign to raise money for the penalty. 헤라카지노주소
Some politicians argued that the penalty for Klinsmann’s dismissal should be paid at the expense of Chung Mong-gyu, president of the Korea Football Association.
Now the ball is passed to Chung Mong-gyu. Chung was the one who made the final decision for Klinsmann to take the helm of the national soccer team.
Players who are guilty of only playing hard first bowed their heads to fans, but those who are responsible for the incident remain silent, and fans’ anger is only growing.
