“Every training session is important.”
It was exactly what Jurgen Klinsmann, the new coach of the Korean national soccer team, said. It was the first training, but the coaching staff did not waste time. Under the direction of strict physical coach Werner Leuthard, the players began training over the weekend, warming up their nerves from playing the league.
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Klinsman, convened at the Paju National Training Center (NFC) on the afternoon of the 20th. There are a total of 25 players in the ‘1st class of Cleansman’, and a total of 20 players, including Oh Hyeon-gyu, who joined the team late, entered the Paju NFC. Son Heung-min, who is about to enter the country, is scheduled to join in the late afternoon of the 20th. Lee Jae-seong, Jung Woo-young, Lee Kang-in, and Kim Min-jae will join the national team on the afternoon of the 21st.
In a pre-training interview, coach Klinsmann emphasized that every training session is important, no matter what kind of training. Most of the national teams that joined on the 20th are domestic players who played a K-League game a day or two ago.
There are many players who played the game just the day before. Ulsan Hyundai goalkeeper Cho Hyun-woo, Kim Yeong-kwon, Kim Tae-hwan, Jeonbuk Hyundai Kim Mun-hwan, Kim Jin-soo, Baek Seung-ho, Song Min-gyu, Cho Kyu-seong, Suwon Samsung Samsung Lee Ki-je, Daejeon Hana Citizen Cho Yu-min, and Gimcheon managing director Kwon Chang-hoon joined the national team after playing K-League games. Except for Kwon Chang-hoon, all of them participated as starters. 토토사이트
Considering their condition, coach Klinsman and the coaching staff focused on recovery at low intensity. The first order was a stretching session led by Coach Reutard. The players gathered in a circle on a yoga mat in the center of the stadium, in the center circle, began to stretch their bodies under the enthusiastic guidance of Coach Reutard.
Coach Reutard helped the players meticulously loosen their tight muscles. He showed off his own movements, and his hard body, which is hard to believe for a 60-year-old, caught the eye. He directly touched the bodies of the players who did not move well and allowed them to stretch ‘properly’. It was never at the level of lightly warming up before training. It was like a yoga master class was held.
After warming up for a long time, the players ran lightly and then moved on to passing training. The three goalkeepers also spent their first training with light exercises such as spinning the ball.
It was the first order of Klinsmanho’s first training, which gave a glimpse of the systematic training method and meticulousness of Reutard’s physical coach.
