Klinsmann leads the South Korea national team

The South Korean Football Association announced, on Monday, the appointment of former Germany coach Jurgen Klinsmann as coach of the Korean national team.
This is the third time that Klinsmann has coached a national team, having previously coached both the German and American national teams.
Paulo Bento had left the coaching of the South Korean national team after leading it to the round of sixteen in the 2022 World Cup, which was held in Qatar.
Klinsmann’s last training stop was with the Hertha Berlin team, and he continued with him until February 2020, when he left the position after only ten weeks.
Klinsmann, the former Tottenham striker, will coach the national team that includes Son Heung-min, the current Tottenham striker, and he will start his career in the position by leading the Korean national team in the match scheduled for his Colombian counterpart on March 24, followed by the match against Uruguay on the 28th of the same month.
British news agency BA Media reported that the 58-year-old Klinsmann signed a contract that runs until after the end of the 2026 World Cup.
“I am very happy and proud to assume the position of coach of the Korean national team,” Klinsmann said.
He continued, “I feel proud of the succession of great coaches who took charge of the South Korean national team, from Guus Hiddink to Paulo Bento. I will do everything in my power to achieve success in the upcoming Asian Cup and the 2026 World Cup.”
