Kim Hyung-beom, who was serious about ‘Benverge’ “Domestic directors do that too”￼
Reporter Kim Song-i = Football commentator Kim Hyung-beom, a former national team member, made a point, saying, “Korean fans suddenly changed their attitude towards coach Bento when they advanced to the round of 16.”
On the 14th, commentator Kim Hyung-beom (38) appeared on YouTube’s “Channel Success” and honestly expressed his thoughts on coach Bento while analyzing the semifinal match between Argentina and Croatia.
While acknowledging Bento’s achievements in the round of 16, Commissioner Kim drew the line that his build-up soccer did not change a huge part of Korean soccer.
Commissioner Kim pointed out the ‘pot spirit’ of soccer fans, saying, “In the process of preparing for the World Cup, coach Bento showed anxiety and there were many dissatisfied fans, but suddenly people were praising him too much.”
He said, “If the World Cup results were bad, the arrows of criticism would not have been a joke. But the fans all suddenly changed and called ‘Benverge’,” he said. .
He also said, “There are many expressions about the composition of the Qatar World Cup players, but I think it would have been this much even if it was a domestic coach.” I do,” he said firmly.

Vice-Chairman Kim said, “There were actually a lot of things I was worried about for Bentoho while preparing for the 4th year.”
