Asian Cup declared winner is the benchmark…Clemensman, now untouchable
Jürgen Klinsmann is now unable to walk back his comments.
Speaking to reporters on Thursday afternoon after returning home from Incheon International Airport, Klinsmann spoke about the upcoming Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in Qatar next January. When asked if his job would depend on the outcome of the Asian Cup, Klinsmann said that everyone on the team is preparing for the Asian Cup as a benchmark, and if the results are not favorable, it is the coach’s destiny to be tested.
The Asian Cup is a tournament that Klinsmann has been calling for since he took over as head coach. Klinsmann has been talking about winning the Asian Cup since he first arrived in South Korea, and in his press conference, he said, “Winning the Asian Cup is our short-term goal. The head coach is judged by results, and I will try to bring a good result (at the Asian Cup). There are about 10 months left until the Asian Cup, so we have to prepare quickly, and I am confident,” he said.
Winning the Asian Cup has become a mantra for Klinsmann. Klinsmann has been calling for an Asian Cup victory since his arrival. Speaking to the media at Incheon Airport, Klinsmann reiterated his desire to win the Asian Cup and admitted that the outcome of the Asian Cup could affect his future. He can’t hold his tongue now.
As Klinsmann said, it’s the results that will silence all the noise and negativity in the build-up to the Asian Cup. For Klinsmann, he needs to fulfill his promise of winning the Asian Cup in order to get rid of the negative publicity.바카라사이트
In the meantime, Klinsmann urged people to create a positive atmosphere. “Positive public opinion and a positive atmosphere energizes us and the players,” Klinsmann said. “The national team is the people’s team, it’s the team that represents the country, so that helps a lot. “I think it’s never too late to criticize, blame, and criticize when you’re not performing or you’re not getting the results you want,” he said, adding that he would rather have a positive atmosphere leading up to the tournament than criticize and blame himself after the fact.
Klinsmann said he would answer the criticism with results. Now he can’t bite his tongue. What Klinsmann needs to show is results.
