“More pressure! Move! Don’t stand still!”
It wasn’t coach Jürgen Klinsmann or captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham) who had the strongest presence at the South Korean national soccer team’s training session at the Paju National Training Center (NFC) on Tuesday. It was coach Chaduri.
The 24 players called up for the October A-match spent about an hour on the pitch under the guidance of Klinsmann and Cha.
Cha had to fill in for Head Coach Andreas Herzog for the day. Herzog had to return home after his mother’s health deteriorated.
Despite the fact that it was an “open practice” in front of 300 fans, Cha was able to guide the players through the drills with a bullhorn.
Of the players who warmed up together, Son Heung-min, Cho Kyu-sung (Meatwillan) and Park Yong-woo (Al Ain) did not participate in the main training session due to their physical condition.
Cho Hyun-woo (Ulsan) worked up a sweat with the goalkeeping coach separately, while the rest of the 20 players played a 10-on-10 mini-game with half the field. During this drill, Cha and Klinsmann “clicked,” especially since Cha is fluent in a foreign language and immediately translated Klinsmann’s instructions into Korean.
When Klinsmann would give instructions, Cha would shout them out loud so that the players across the field could understand. If he didn’t like the way the players in front of him were playing, he would speak up and encourage them. He would also give detailed movement instructions to the players to ensure that his “philosophy” permeated their movements.
When the team was pressing forward, Cha would run around the field with them, loudly reminding them, “Don’t just take the ball, take the ball and then possess it!” It was a scene that showed off his player coaching skills, which he honed while serving as the head coach of the K League 1 FC Seoul U-18 team, Osango.
Cha originally joined Klinsmann as an “advisor” to the national team, not a coach. He served as a technical advisor when Klinsmann was hired to help the South Korean team get off the ground, but when the team parted ways with Michael Kim (Korean name Kim Young-min) last month, he was named “coach”.
Son, who focused on stretching away from the main squad, did not join the team until after the mini-game. Earlier, Klinsmann said at a press conference on Sept. 9 that he would manage the physical condition of overseas players, including Son Heung-min, by adjusting their training volume.토토사이트
Meanwhile, unlike Son Heung-min and Cho Kyu-sung, Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), who joined the team after playing his club’s early morning game on the 9th, trained normally.
Fans who attended the team’s training session cheered the players on with witty chants. “Congratulations to Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), who won gold at the Hangzhou Asian Games and received the benefit of serving as an artistic and athletic staff member,” they chanted.
Cho Kyu-sung, who wears his hair long, drew laughs with chants of “Shave Cho Kyu-sung’s hair. Hwang Hee-chan, who met with the media before training and said, “I’m looking forward to new chants from the fans,” was made to laugh by shouting, “Why is she playing soccer!” in reference to actress Yeo Jin-gu, who is considered a lookalike celebrity.
