Klinsmann, who was appointed as the new coach of the national soccer team, entered Incheon International Airport Terminal 1 early on the 8th.
There were many reporters and fans at the airport. After entering the arrival hall, Klinsmann posed after receiving a bouquet of flowers and a Korean muffler from Michael Mueller, chairman of the technical committee.
Klinsmann said, “First of all, thank you for coming here early and welcoming me. I am proud and honored to be here. “It’s an honor to be the coach of the Korean national team and I’ll be able to continue Korea’s achievements at the Qatar World Cup,” he said.
As for the reason why he chose Korea as a coach, he said, “First of all, I have visited Korea several times before. I visited the 1988 Seoul Olympics, the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup, and the 2020 U-20 World Cup when I had a chance, and I was happy. Also, I think Korea is a good team. “I and the players will learn a lot,” he said. 토토사이트
