Michael Müller, head of the Korea Football Association’s National Team Strengthening Committee, announced that there was no Korean coach in the final candidates for the national soccer team coach.
Chairman Müller held a press conference at the Soccer Hall located in Sinmun-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 28th and explained the process of appointing coach Jürgen Klinsmann, a world-class striker born in Germany, as the next head coach of the Korean national team.
“The appointment of the head coach started from a blank slate. I prepared interviews for the candidates myself,” said Chairman Mueller.
He continued, “We first selected a total of 61 candidates by the 12th of last month. Then, by the 18th, we selected 23 candidates and made a contact plan. The process of selecting 5 candidates was conducted until January 26th, and from January 30th to February I had an online meeting with 5 people until the 1st.”
He said there was no Korean coach in the final five.
Chairman Mueller said, “There were no domestic coaches among the five. There were already many foreign coaches who met the five criteria set by the Korea Football Association. If there were not enough foreign coaches, there were plans to meet Korean coaches. The first 61 people Among the candidates, there was a Korean director,” he explained.메이저놀이터
“We didn’t exclude Koreans from the entire list of candidates,” he said. “We didn’t set a standard for distinguishing between Korean and foreign directors. We evaluated whether or not they were the directors we really needed. The final five candidates were very good people. Because of that, I didn’t meet people who were outside the rankings.”
Finally, he said, “It is difficult to say what Korean coaches lacked more than foreign coaches.”
