“I won’t make my interpretation difficult.” Klinsman learning Korean, a hot topic in Germany
Director Jürgen Klinsmann’s (59) Korean language lecture has begun.
The national soccer team led by head coach Klinsman drew with Colombia 2-2 with Son Heung-min scoring two goals in a friendly match held at Ulsan Munsu Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 24th, but conceding two runs. Coach Klinsman delayed his first victory in his debut against Uruguay on the 28th.
Coach Klinsmann was a leading striker for Germany during his active career. He led the German national team to victory in the World Cup in Germany in 2006. The German people are also very interested in Klinsmann’s every move.
In order to see Klinsman’s debut match, he came from far away from Germany to report. A German reporter asked Klinsmann in German at a press conference, “Is there any difficulty in speaking the language in Korea?”
Klinsman laughed and said, “There is no one who can speak German right now, so our interpreter will be very difficult.” Me too,” he smiled.스포츠토토
Klinsmann looked at the interpreter next to him and said, “I don’t want to burden the interpreter or embarrass him. So he decided to learn Korean and has already started taking classes. He likes to learn other languages,” he said with a sense of humor.
Coach Klinsman usually communicates with the team in English. Advisor Dan Cha Du-ri and Son Heung-min speak freely with Klinsman in German.
German media ‘Luteer’ said, “Unlike Bento’s predecessor, who had no intention of learning Korean, Klinsmann actively wants to learn. I’ll see how his experience plays out on the playground and in a new language,” he said, sending a positive signal.
