The core of Klins Manho is the ‘central hand’. It is a tactic that places ‘captain’ and ‘ace’ Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) in the ‘center’ rather than the left flank. Of course, former coach Paulo Bento (from Portugal) also used the ‘central hand’ card. However, there is a difference from the Klinsmann method of use. While Bento’s former coach used Son Heung-min as a ‘midfielder’ focused on passing or linking, manager Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany) used him as a ‘strike’ aiming for goals.
To maximize Son Heung-min’s ability as a goalscorer, Klinsman’s solution had a great effect. Son Heung-min scored multiple goals in a friendly match against Colombia held at Ulsan World Cup Stadium on the 24th. Of course, his first goal was an opponent’s mistake and the second goal was a free kick, but Son Heung-min showed a very active movement that day. Son Heung-min went back and forth between the second line and the front line, aiming for a goal. He was aggressive at the same time. Son Heung-min had 4 of the 9 shots recorded by the Colombian national team. a figure close to half. He was not the Son Heung-min of the past, who was said to have saved his shooting somewhat in the national team. 먹튀검증
Detailed tactics were also tailored to Son Heung-min. On this day, coach Klinsman borrowed a lot of Bento style football, but made changes in the attack. In order to make the most of Son Heung-min’s speed, there were many long passes to the opponent’s goal. Cho Gyu-seong (Jeonbuk Hyundai), who was positioned at the forefront, showed a move to save Son Heung-min’s speed, and placed the left and right midfielders as ‘opposite wingers’ to focus on speedy attacks and central linkages. Right-footed Jung Woo-yeong (Freiburg) on the left assisted Son Heung-min by digging into the center during a counterattack, and left-footed Lee Jae-seong (Mainz) on the right moved to the center and led the back fight and pass play.
This form of tactics looked powerful, and director Klinsman also expressed satisfaction. Coach Klinsman nailed it at a press conference after the game, saying, “I will continue to use Son Heung-min as a free role.”
