Jürgen Klinsmann hopes to bring Heung-min Son back to South Korea
Jürgen Klinsmann did not make many mysteries this Thursday during his induction as new South Korea manager. The German technician (58) has every intention of relaunching Heung-min Son. The Tottenham striker (30 years old, 110 caps) has only scored five goals this season with Spurs.
“I’m a huge Sonny fan, said the former United States coach (2011-2016) about the former Premier League scorer last season, tied with Mohamed Salah (23 goals). He had a difficult World Cup because he was not in good health. […] All players go through ups and downs. The situation also at Tottenham is not so easy. I hope I will see him in two weeks, with a smile and a spirit of appetite for the national team. »
Herzog and Kopke in the staff
“I will get to know him much, much better and I can encourage and motivate him to have fun in any role and however he plays on the pitch,” added Klinsmann, who will be supported on the Taeguk Warriors staff by Austrian Andreas Herzog and Andreas Kopke as goalkeeping coach.
