Jurgen Klinsmann, head coach of the South Korean national soccer team, is drawing keen attention due to the “request for uniform” issue.
The German version of “Sky Sports” said on the 15th (Korean time), “Coach Klinsmann is criticized in Korea because of the “Uniform Gate.” The “uniform gate” expressed by the media took place on the 8th.
South Korea and Wales played a friendly A match at Cardiff City Stadium in England. The result was a 0-0 draw. South Korea played a poor game with only one effective shot in 90 minutes. Coach Klinsmann had no victory in his first five games, including this game, with three draws and two losses.
At the end of the game, manager Klinsmann entered the ground and spoke to Wales captain Aaron Ramsey. “I’m going to give it to my son. Can you give me your uniform?” Klinsman asked Ramsey, the captain of the opposing team, to give it to him.
For reference, Ramsey is a veteran midfielder who plays for Arsenal in the English Premier League (EPL), Juventus in Serie A in Italy, and Ligue 1 in France and plays for Cardiff City from this season. He is the top star of the Welsh national team and has a back number of 10.메이저놀이터
The uniform request was an inappropriate word and action. In friendly matches, players often exchange uniforms, but it is not common for coaches to ask their opponents for uniforms. If you want to get a uniform, you can also request it on the aisle to the locker room.
However, manager Klinsmann was severely criticized for asking Ramsey for a uniform on the ground where the crowd was watching and relay cameras were scattered.
Coach Klinsmann, who returned to Incheon International Airport on the 14th, said, “I actually didn’t know it would be such a big issue,” adding, “My son was criticized on social media (SNS) after media reports came out. It’s sad and unfortunate. “My son’s physical therapist (LA Galaxy) asked for Ramsey’s uniform and accepted it instead,” he replied.
Coach Clinton’s son Jonathan Klinsmann currently plays as a goalkeeper for the Los Angeles Galaxy in the U.S. Major League Soccer. In other words, a physical therapist from LA Galaxy, a Welsh national, asked Jonathan Klinsman for a “father chance.”
Sky Sports also reported by coach Klinsmann citing the remarks. Even after winning his first victory against Saudi Arabia, Klinsmann was criticized on his way back to Korea. I asked for Ramsey’s uniform in the name of giving it to my son’s acquaintance, and he said, “I’m sad that my son was cursed a lot on SNS.”
Another issue was also reported. The media said, “Coach Klinsmann initially stayed in Europe and tried to watch Kim Min-jae’s Bayern Munich match. However, he mentioned the controversy over home and abroad, saying, “I entered Korea after hearing from the Korea Football Association (KFA) that the coach should return home with the team.”
