The first two matches of the Korean national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann (59) ended unfortunately. Coach Klinsman said, “The attacking team was outstanding and it was unfortunate that the concentration dropped at the moment, but the contents of both games were not bad.” As coach Klinsman evaluated, Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca), and Hwang In-beom (27, Olympiacos) were outstanding, but they lost their concentration in defense. Defensive reinforcement has emerged as the top priority for Klinsmann. Bad news overlapped with this national team. ‘Monster defender’ Kim Min-jae (27, Naples, photo) collapsed mentally and physically. Coach Klinsman’s first task was to familiarize himself with Kim Min-jae.
After the evaluation match with Uruguay held at Sangam World Cup Stadium in Seoul on the 28th, Kim Min-jae met with reporters and said, “I think I have collapsed a lot mentally,” and “I want to focus on my team rather than the national team.” “I want to do my best in my team rather than the national team because it is difficult both soccer and physically,” he said. “I also talked a little with the Korea Football Association.”
It is a remark that can be interpreted as a retirement from the national team. The football world is concerned that Kim Min-jae is in a state of exhaustion. After finishing the World Cup, he went back and forth at home and abroad and digested the Serie A and European Football Federation Champions League (UCL) schedules, so he is said to be physically exhausted. He also analyzed that he was also mixed with self-blame. In an interview with the sponsor earlier, Kim Min-jae said, “The goalless goal is better than the goal scored, and I feel proud when I finish the game with a goalless goal.” Even before the game against Uruguay, he said, “I won’t give up any points” and made up his mind. However, the national team’s defense centered on Kim Min-jae has conceded 8 goals in the last 3 games, including 4 goals to Brazil in the World Cup round of 16.
An official from the Korea Football Association said,메이저놀이터 “In January, Min-jae Kim and the association talked about the mental part, and after coach Klinsman took over, individual interviews were held.” I know that,” he said. Kim Min-jae left the country to return to his team that day. Coach Klinsman plans to go on a business trip to Europe next month to check the skills and physical condition of overseas players.
On the other hand, as the controversy grew, Kim Min-jae posted on the social network service (SNS), saying, “The meaning of being difficult is misrepresented and posted. As a representative player, there has never been a game where I did not do my best or did not work hard because my body was tired.” I apologize several times,” he said.
