From Tottenham seniors and juniors, they now meet as teachers and disciples of the national team. The relationship between coach Jürgen Klinsmann (59) and Son Heung-min, who was nominated as the 74th head coach of the Korean national soccer team, is attracting attention.
On the 28th, ‘Spurs Web’, which conveys the news of Tottenham, said, “The former Tottenham star is now with Son Heung-min as the coach of the new Korean national soccer team.” Coach Klinsman was appointed as the head coach of the Korean national soccer team on the 27th. His contract period is about 3 years and 5 months from March to the 2026 World Cup finals in North and Central America.
In the UK, attention was paid to the meeting between coach Klinsman and Son Heung-min, who had a good performance at Tottenham메이저사이트. Spurs Webb explained, “Son Heung-min will play with Klinsman, who is familiar to Tottenham fans.”
In fact, coach Klinsmann went through Stuttgart (Germany), Inter Milan (Italy), AS Monaco (France) and played for Tottenham in the 1994-95 season. At that time, he scored 29 goals in 50 matches for the season, including 20 goals in 41 league matches, and won the Tottenham Club’s Player of the Year award.
After that, Klinsmann went through Bayern Munich (Germany) and Sampdoria (Italy) and was loaned to Tottenham in the 1997-98 season, scoring 9 goals in 15 league games. The attack points achieved wearing the Tottenham uniform are 38 goals and 15 assists in a total of 68 games.
Spursweb said, “Coach Klinsman is now taking on a new challenge through the Korean national team coach,” and “You will see him connect with another Tottenham legend (Son Heung-min). Son Heung-min is also preparing to accompany the new coach.”
Son Heung-min, who will face manager Klinsman, has no choice but to be special. Son Heung-min started his career in the big leagues in Hamburg SV in the German Bundesliga in 2010, starting with the youth team in 2008. Although he did not play at the same time, he wore Tottenham’s crest, and now he is in a position to look at the World Cup with the same gaze in the national team.
The media also said, “The meeting between Klinsman and Son Heung-min can be a good opportunity for both,” and “Director Klinsman plays a better role when expectations are a little lower. It will be interesting if he leads Korea to the next World Cup.” Coach Klinsman will return to Korea next week and begin his full-fledged activities as the coach of the Korean national team. His debut match is a friendly match against Colombia to be held in Ulsan on the 24th of next month.
