Starting with the warm-up…”
Somehow, it is ‘certainly’ different. Coach Jürgen Klinsmann (Germany), who took over the helm from former coach Paulo Bento (Portugal), approaches the training method differently from the preparation process.
The previous day (21st), Kim Min-jae (Naples), Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), and Jung Woo-young (Freiburg) joined the Paju National Training Center (NFC), and the national team, which became complete, began training in earnest on the 22nd. Excluding Kwon Kyung-won (Gamba Osaka), who started training separately due to poor physical condition, 24 players gathered on the ground. The players, who gathered in a circle for five minutes and listened to coach Klinsman’s story, started training in warm weather.
On the 20th and 21st, recovery training focused on conditioning. On the first day of the call, I warmed up with stretching and running for about an hour, and I went to training freely for the remaining 30 minutes.
Hwang In-beom, who we met prior to training on the morning of the 22nd, said, “I trained lightly while the number of people was not filled. It’s probably going to start training in earnest from today. I look forward to what kind of training is being prepared. I will follow suit and play the football the coach wants.”
It was an atmosphere that paid special attention to the warm-up. Werner Leutard’s physical coach closely examined each player. For stretching movements that did not go well, he showed demonstrations, while holding on to the players and guiding detailed movements. On the first day of the convocation, I approached Cho Yu-min and Oh Hyun-gyu, and on this day, I approached Kim Min-jae, who joined the day before.
Hwang In-beom said, 안전놀이터“I did not systematically conduct detailed training, but it seems that the warm-up is different. Coach Reutard is different from Bentojo’s Pedro (Portugal) physical coach. He explained that learning the German way will help him prolong his playing career.”
After training in the morning, the national team will move to Ulsan in the afternoon on the 24th to play an A-match evaluation match against Colombia at Munsu Stadium in Ulsan.
