Guus Hiddink (77, Netherlands), former coach of the Korean national soccer team, who achieved the ‘four-final legend’ at the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup, is still loved by domestic fans. He visits Korea whenever the opportunity arises and maintains a deep relationship.
Director Hiddink, who is now in his 80s바카라사이트, danced happily recently.
He moved his right and left feet alternately, taking small steps, and later waved his hand and smiled brightly. The person who received this video via KakaoTalk was Song Joon-seop, the representative director of Gangnam JS Hospital. Director Song Joon-seop, who has served in the 2010 South Africa World Cup, the 2012 London Olympics, and the 2014 Brazil World Cup as the national soccer team’s doctor, is like a benefactor to Coach Hiddink.
In 2014, Director Hiddink received cord blood stem cell knee surgery from Director Song. Unable to play golf, which he usually likes, due to his right knee discomfort, he underwent surgery and was able to live a vigorous life again, such as hitting powerful drive shots.
And eight years later, in October of last year, coach Hiddink entrusted his left knee to director Song Joon-seop this time. Director Song performed stem cell surgery along with reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Six months later, Hiddink showed off his quick recovery by sending his ‘dance video’ to Director Song. He boasted, “I can walk for a long time without pain and go up and down hills without problems.”
Coach Hiddink visited Korea last June to mark the 20th anniversary of the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup.
In an interview with this magazine at the time, he said that among the many teams he led, the Korean national team was the most memorable and said, “Korea surprised soccer fans around the world in 2002. Even now, many people ask me, ‘What the hell happened at that time?
