The risk of losing the ‘build-up soccer’ that has been accumulated for 4 years… Chairman Müller “Simple and fast”

“I’m looking forward to a simpler and quicker way to score through counterattacks.”

Michael Müller (58, Germany), head of the National Team Strengthening Committee, was asked at a press conference held at the Soccer Hall located in Sinmun-ro on the 28th of last month whether he would continue the philosophy and tactics of former coach Paulo Bento (53, Portugal). .

The Korean national soccer team completed ‘build-up soccer’ with former coach Bento, who took office in August 2018, commanding based on a clear philosophy and unshakable conviction. In particular, some experts argued that it would not work against teams with an advantage in objective power, and that it should be changed to a ‘first defense and then counterattack’ tactic, but they did not give up. As a result, he advanced to the round of 16 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

However, he was put in a situation where he might have to watch the collapse of the ‘build-up football’ that Bento had worked so hard for four years. Furthermore, he was in danger of ‘regressing’ as the Korean national football team could not find a direction to move forward. If you look at the background of the appointment of Jurgen Klinsmann (58, Germany) by the Müller National Team Strengthening Committee, it is because it is far from ‘leading football’.

“I kept thinking about the future after Bento’s former coach left,” said Müller, head of the National Team Power Enhancement Committee. I look forward to scoring simple, fast and easy goals through this.” In fact, it means that there is no plan to continue ‘build-up soccer’ or ‘leading soccer’.

However, there is a ‘contradiction’ in the words of Müller, the chairman of the National Team Strengthening Committee. When asked at the press conference in January if he would appoint a coach who would continue the philosophy accumulated over the past 4 years, he said, “Of course. It’s important to know what you’ve been doing,” he said. He changed his words within a month, causing even greater controversy. 토토사이트

‘Build-up soccer’ was not created overnight. It was completed after four years of experimentation and trial and error. In particular, the process was even more difficult due to the nature of the national team, where there was extremely limited time to match organizational skills, and variables could occur at each call.

Based on the ‘build-up soccer’ that was created through everyone’s efforts, it proved its competitiveness worldwide and was able to proudly open its shoulders in international competitions. The Taegeuk Warriors also smiled, delighted with the noticeably different tactical system compared to before. But I can’t imagine losing it overnight. It is necessary to reconsider the promise that Müller, the chairman of the National Team Power Enhancement Committee, made at the time of his appointment, ‘we will give top priority to the Korean national soccer team going in the right direction’.
