Coach Klinsman, who started leading his national team from last March, has yet to taste the joy of his first victory. After recording 1 draw and 1 loss in the two consecutive matches between Colombia and Uruguay held in March, Lee Jae-sung hoped to give coach Klinsman his first victory through the match against El Salvador.
The following is the Q&A of Lee Jae-sung.
– It seems that there was a story within the team because the result of the last match against Peru was not good.
As a result, there are some regrets about not being able to win, but there are always difficulties when starting under a new coach, so I am not too worried. Today, through a video meeting before training, the director and coaches talked about the parts we need to improve. I think we will get better because it is a process of preparing to show a good performance in the future match against El Salvador. The players also have expectations, so I am not worried.
-The first win after coach Klinsmann’s appointment to the Korean national team is being delayed.
The minds of the players are always the same. I tried to win from the first game (after Klinsman took over), and I also aimed to win the last game against Peru, but it’s just a little disappointing that the result didn’t follow. I think the process is more important now than focusing on the outcome. We are not thinking too much because it is a process for us to produce results in Qatar (Asian Cup). In the game against El Salvador, the fans expect to win, so we are preparing for victory.
– It seems that the opinion among the players that we couldn’t win the game against Peru because some players were left out came out and hurt their pride.
I think those words come out because we didn’t win as a team rather than pride. It seems that it is the players’ responsibility to come together better as a team rather than individual players, meet the coach’s demands, and show good performances through communication with each other so that such stories do not come out in the future.
-During the game against Peru, I used the 4-4-2 formation and stood in the midfield position on the left and right sides with Lee Kang-in. Is there any difference from when you played with Kwon Chang-hoon under coach Shin Tae-yong in the past?
It was the same with coach Shin Tae-yong, but now coach Klinsman always asks second-tier resources to freely switch plays, so I feel comfortable with the players because they can play in any position. It is the responsibility of the players to continue to work together and find the best position, and the coach is also trying to find it.메이저사이트
– Young players like Hong Hyun-seok joined the national team. As a member of the national team, I want to ask how it felt to run together.
In the last match against Peru, (Hong) Hyun-seok and many players made their debut or played (in the national team) for the first time in a long time. I think I definitely felt more myself. I hope that these parts will be an opportunity for our players to develop more personally in the future, and I hope that the national team will do better through this. Also, as a senior by the side, I try to help well.
-In that sense, Lee Kang-in became the main player of the national team, but the player himself seems to feel a lot of pressure.
I’m not a player who felt that kind of pressure or pressure, so I can’t understand it well, but I hope (Lee) Kang-in doesn’t feel too much pressure in the national team. He believes that it is the role of the seniors to help people around him so that he can enjoy his abilities on the field, and that it is a role that he must play as a senior, so I hope he will work with a comfortable mind.
