‘Know Korea’ coach Klinsmann has high hopes for ‘Stuttgart junior’ Jung Woo-young

Head coach Jürgen Klinsmann (59) talks about VfB Stuttgart junior Jung Woo-young (24).

Klinsmann’s men’s national team will face Tunisia at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on Nov. 13. On the 17th, they will play Vietnam at the Suwon World Cup Stadium.

One of the main topics of interest will be whether Klinsmann will utilize Jung Woo-young. Jung, who plays for VfB Stuttgart in the German Bundesliga, had a breakout season at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games. He was the tournament’s top scorer with eight goals. Klinsmann congratulated him and called him “my Stuttgart junior”.

Klinsmann was a prominent striker during his playing days and also played for Stuttgart. He shared this history and praised Jung Woo-young.

Klinsmann also spoke about Jung at the official press conference before the match against Tunisia on December 12. He said, “I mentioned Jung Woo-young in the headlines in Germany. Stuttgart and the Germans have gotten to know him and what he means in terms of Korea’s military issues and so on,” he laughed. 메이저사이트

Klinsmann also took a positive view of Jung’s increased playing time after struggling last season.

“In the previous season at SC Freiburg, he didn’t get much playing time,” Klinsmann said. But this season, he got a lot of playing time at Stuttgart and at the Asian Games under coach Hwang Sun-hong. He also scored a lot of goals at the Asian Games, which was impressive.”

Finally, Klinsmann said that he will continue to think about how to utilize Jung Woo-young. “He is a resource that can play in the center, on the flanks, and all over the field, so we will think more about how to use him,” he said, referring to Hwang’s use of him as a wing forward and a striker.
