“We are in close talks with Bayern Munich…”
Coach Kim Eun-joong, who leads the Korean national under-20 (U-20) national team, delivered his thoughts ahead of the U-20 World Cup at the Paju National Football Team Training Center (NFC) on the 1st. Director Kim Eun-joong will announce the final 21 players after conducting final training until the 5th. This five-day training session is the last boulder.
Director Kim Eun-joong said, “The roster is about 80% complete. There are still a few concerns about the midfield and wing forwards.” warned. Coach Kim Eun-joong emphasized that, as a basic condition for going to Argentina, “we will make up players with a clear sense of purpose.”
Head coach Kim Eun-joong, who is spurring player confirmation until the end, personally checked overseas players on a business trip to Europe at the end of March and talked with the club for selection. Thanks to this, we were able to call three players: Kim Yong-hak (Protimonense), Cho Jin-ho (Fenerbahce), and Lee Ji-han (Freiburg).
Head coach Kim Eun-joong said, “I tried several times to call overseas players before, but I couldn’t call them.” 메이저놀이터
However, Lee Hyun-joo, who plays in Bayern Munich’s 2nd team, gives me a headache. Lee Hyeon-joo, an attacking midfielder who went through Pocheol Middle School and Pocheol High School, recorded 9 goals and 2 assists while playing on loan in the second team in Munich this season. The future is bright enough to skip to the Olympic team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong.
It is a resource that can be a solution for manager Kim Eun-joong, who is worried about the second line of attack. However, there is a big mountain left to convince Bayern Munich. Bayern Munich also opposed the selection of Jung Woo-young to the end in 2019, when Korea won the highest ever runner-up in the U-20 World Cup.
