Klinsman, who finally had a relationship with Son Heung-min, almost went to Tottenham as ‘Mourinho’s successor’ two years ago
Coach Jürgen Klissmann, who was appointed as the head coach of the Korean national soccer team, finally came into contact with Son Heung-min.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 27th through a press release that ‘Director Klinsman has been appointed as the new head coach’토토사이트. The contract period is until the 2026 World Cup finals in North and Central America, and the salary is not disclosed. He also included the condition of living in Korea rather than working from home.
Klinsmann began his managerial career as head coach of his native Germany national team. He got off to a good start. He achieved third place at the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Afterwards, he coached Bayern Munich, his home team and the strongest team in the German Bundesliga, and from 2011 he led the US national team for five years. During his tenure with the U.S. national team, he won the 2013 North & Central America Gold Cup and advanced to the round of 16 at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. However, he resigned after playing just 10 matches for Hertha Berlin, his most recent job. He took a break from directing for six years after that.
He was also rumored to be appointed manager of Tottenham. After manager Jose Mourinho left in 2021, he was mentioned as one of the candidates for manager. Manager Klinsman also admitted the fact of the negotiations at the time, saying, “I had my first conversation with manager Daniel Levy.” However, Tottenham coach Nuno Espiritu took over, and coach Klinsman remained as an American ‘ESPN’ soccer expert.
The relationship with Son Heung-min was finally made. As head coach of the Korean national team, he will coach Son Heung-min, the captain and Tottenham star. The British ‘HITC’ also paid attention, saying, “Only Klins, who dreamed of becoming Tottenham coach, has now become Son Heung-min’s coach.”
Both players left a big footprint at Tottenham. Manager Klinsman scored 29 goals in the 1994-1995 season and was responsible for Tottenham’s goals. He also played for Tottenham on loan during the 1997-1998 season. Son Heung-min has been active at Tottenham since 2015 and has scored 140 goals in 357 matches.
