Andreas Herzog (55, Austria), head coach of ‘Klins Manho’, expressed his impressions of facing the Korean national soccer team.
On the 21st (Korean time), head coach Hairchoke posted on his social media account, “My first impression was really good. He uploaded several photos taken at the National Training Center (NFC) in Paju with the caption, “Goodbye from Seoul.”
He stepped on Korean soil on the 16th. This is to assist coach Jürgen Klinsmann (59, Germany). In addition, on the same day, coach Paolo Stringara (Italy), goalkeeper coach Andreas Köpke, and physical coach Werner Leutard (aged 61, Germany) also entered the country through Incheon Airport, and the ‘Klinsmann Division’ formed a complete team.
Head coach Hairchoke is the right-hand man of Klinsman, who is rumored to be head coach. From 2011 to 2016, Klinsman served as the head coach of the US national team, and the head coach who helped him at this time was Hairchoke. He jointly led the United States to the round of 16 at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The two held hands again through the Korean national team after 7 years, and on the 20th, they exchanged greetings with the team for the first time in the NFC. 스포츠토토
