클린스만, 최고의 상사잖아?”…K직장인의 웃픈 글 - 국민일보

Asian Cup Klinsmann: “If I Don’t Make it to the Quarterfinals, It’s not too late to Cancel my Accommodation at that time”

“If the game results are bad, it won’t be too late to cancel it then, said Korean national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann at the tournament’s main media center in Doha, Qatar, on the 29th, a day before the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup round of 16 match against Saudi Arabia.


At the press conference held at MMC, he did not hide his confidence in victory.


Even before the competition, he had been urging fans and reporters to reserve accommodations until the finals.


Even when public opinion was criticized for poor performance after the group stage, he was confident of winning and said, "Extend your stay."

However, the day before the Saudi War, the words changed slightly. 온라인카지노


When asked by a foreign reporter whether making such a 'hotel remark' would be a burden to him, he said that there would be no major problem if he canceled his hotel reservation belatedly, making the reporters laugh.


Still, he expressed confidence, saying, "It's not a burden.


I just need to produce good results," and "My goal is clear."


The Asian Cup round of 16 match between Korea and Saudi Arabia will kick off at Al Rayyan's Education City Stadium at 1 a.m. on the 31st, Korean time.


The following is a Q&A with Director Klinsmann.


- What are your plans for the round of 16?


This is a highly anticipated game.


I can’t wait to play my first match of the tournament.


We will show a good performance against a strong team called Saudi Arabia.


- Successfully avoided Japan in the round of 16 by drawing with Malaysia.


You laughed when we gave up a 3-3 equalizer to Malaysia. Why did you do that?


Saudi Arabia is a strong team that has won the championship three times.


I have never tried to avoid Japan.


There was no intention.


I've never thought about that before.


The goal was to advance to the round of 16 in first place.


Even though they had 85% ball possession and nearly 30 corner kicks, they were unable to finish the game, and the nervousness led to conceding goals, which is why they laughed.


Respect Saudi Arabia.


I have dealt with Saudi Coach Roberto Mancini a lot during his time as a player.


We are thirsty for victory.


- Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic) met with reporters the day before and answered that the reason Saudi Arabia has conceded so few goals is because they have not played against Korea yet.


What do the directors think?


Saudi Arabia is the opponent we faced last September.


Both teams know each other well.


Saudi Arabia has played about 10 games since Coach Mancini took office, and his colors are clearly visible.


Korea showed a lot of bad scenes in the last three games, but they are correcting them.


I will win and advance to the quarterfinals.


- How do you plan to use Kim Young-kwon, who appeared at the press conference together, tomorrow?


It is an honor to be able to work with Kim Young-kwon, who is a more professional player than anyone else.


I often say to him, ‘You don’t seem to age.’


What he is most thankful for is that Jeong Seung-hyun, a junior on his team, played as a starter for the national team and said, 'I will be here for the team' even when he could not appear in the game.


It is an honor as a coach to work with a player like this.


I want to come together as a team with these players and achieve good results.


- According to Korean media, you said, 'Extend the hotel until the finals'.


Doesn't saying this put a burden on you?


Whether or not to make a hotel reservation is a personal choice.


It's not a burden.


All you have to do is produce good results.


If the results of the game are bad, it will not be too late to cancel it.


It will be a difficult game tomorrow, but my goal is clear.


- In the Asian Cup, Saudi Arabia leads Korea with 1 win and 3 draws.


What part of Saudi Arabia are you afraid of?


I’m not scared, I just respect Saudi Arabia.


As Coach Mancini takes on new challenges, his efforts are gradually melting into the team, and this can be seen on the playground.


I hope that after the round of 16, Korea will smile and have more positive conversations.
