Korean national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann welcomed Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart), who came with a gold medal around his neck.
Jung Woo-young scored eight goals and led Hwang Seon-hong to the gold medal at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which ended last week. Jung Woo-young, who played as a left-sided striker, scored a valuable equalizer in the final against Korea and Japan, laying the foundation for a comeback victory.
Jung Woo-young, who made a remarkable contribution to winning the men’s soccer title for the third time in a row at the Asian Games, will immediately join Klinsmann and prepare for the A match in October. Even after joining the Paju National Team Training Center (NFC), he is pampered enough to keep his Asian Games gold medal in his pocket.
Jung Woo-young’s gold medal is not only a hot topic in Korea. In Europe, where comprehensive sporting events are awkward, it is not easy to understand our situation, which includes military service benefits. Nevertheless, I watched with interest as Jung Woo-young won the gold medal.
When Jung Woo-young was in full swing at the Asian Games, ‘Sky Sports Germany’ said, “If Jung Woo-young wins the gold medal, his former team, Freiburg, will benefit greatly,” and “Under the transfer fee clause signed with Stuttgart, he will receive 1 million euros (about 1.4 billion won). ),” he said.
This is the part that explains the deal between Stuttgart and Freiburg that takes into account when Jung Woo-young receives military exemption. It was a clause in the deal that was agreed upon so that if Jung Woo-young receives military service benefits, there will be no obstacles to his life in Stuttgart.
In addition, they seemed curious about the military issues of Korean players. This could also be confirmed from Director Klinsmann’s words. When the story about Jung Woo-young came up at the press conference about the Tunisia game held at Paju NFC on the 12th, Coach Klinsmann said, “It was also mentioned in the headlines in the German media,” and “Many people in Germany also learned about Korea’s military culture and what the Asian Games mean.” “Jung Woo-young played a big role,” he praised.
Jung Woo-young also jumped into the race for the A national team starting spot thanks to his outstanding performance in Hwang Seon-hong. Just as Hwang Seon-hong benefited from using Jung Woo-young as a scorer, Coach Klinsmann also needs to find his stride.
Coach Klinsmann said, “Jung Woo-young’s scoring performance in the Asian Games was impressive. He can play multiple positions, so we need to think about how to use him. Like Son Heung-min, he can play both center and side. We need to think a little more.” We started looking for ways to utilize it.먹튀검증
Klinsmann must continue the good atmosphere of Hwang Seon-hong’s gold medal. Coach Klinsmann has had 1 win, 3 draws, and 2 losses in the 6 games since he took office. Their only win was in a European away game against Saudi Arabia last month, so there has been no win in front of domestic soccer fans.
Coach Klinsmann mobilized all European players, including Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), and Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), for the October international match between Tunisia and Vietnam (16th, Suwon).
Tunisia, who will be faced first, is ranked 29th in the FIFA rankings, which is not much different from the national team (26th). At last year’s World Cup in Qatar, they failed to advance to the round of 16, but showed great power by defeating France.
Korea is inferior to Tunisia in their previous record with 1 draw and 1 loss. They drew 0-0 in their first match in 2002, but lost 0-1 in the match held in Seoul in 2014.
Coach Klinsmann said, “This is the last warm-up game before the second round of qualifying for the 2026 North and Central America World Cup begins. I want to give good results in both games and give a gift to the fans,” adding, “It will be an opportunity for us to grow further ahead of the Asian Cup, and the players will also want to show us their support.” “I understand how they work and what needs to be completed,” he said.
