“Young Korean players, challenge Europe!”… Klinsman’s ‘sincere’

Korean national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann is now in Europe. He travels around Europe to check and communicate with the Korean national team players.

The first runner was Son Heung-min (Tottenham메이저놀이터). Heading to England, coach Klinsman saw Son Heung-min in person, who scored a goal against Bournemouth on the 15th. And the second runner is Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic). On the 16th, coach Klinsman stepped on Scottish soil.

Celtic won 4-1 against Kilmarnock in the 32nd round of the Scottish Premiership in the 2022-2023 season held at Kilmarnock Rugby Park in Scotland on the 16th. Oh Hyun-kyu was put in at the start of the second half. He didn’t score a goal, but he showed his characteristic lively appearance and made manager Klinsman not go in vain.

Ahead of this game, manager Klinsman had an interview with a local broadcaster. It was a situation where he did not know whether Oh Hyun-kyu would participate in the game.

It was an impressive interview. The core content was sincere advice to Korean players. In particular, he expressed his feelings towards young players. Since Oh Hyun-gyu is a 22-year-old young player, it seems that he emphasized this part. The key, like Oh Hyeon-gyu, was to ‘challenge Europe’ at a young age.

Scotland’s ‘The Scotsman’ published an interview with Klinsman.

Coach Klinsman said, “I came to Europe on a 10-day schedule to see the Korean national team players. Yesterday I was in Tottenham to see Sonny, and today I got a chance to see a very young striker playing for Celtic.”

He continued, “Even if Hyun-kyu Oh starts on the bench, I hope he can get even a few minutes from coach Enze Postecoglu. Hyun-kyu Oh has a very special talent. Two weeks ago, while preparing for the A match against Colombia and Uruguay, I was Hyun-kyu Oh. , and Oh Hyun-gyu left a very, very positive impression. So, I am curious about the appearance of Oh Hyun-gyu here.”

Lastly, coach Klinsman left advice for all young players in Korea, including Oh Hyun-kyu.

“It’s not easy for young players to play for a huge club like Celtic,” he said. I want to see where this goes. This is the learning process to learn football.”
