Korean legend Lam, who criticized Klinsmann for his lack of tactics, actively supports Ban Hal as the next coach of the national team.

German soccer legend Philipp Lahm (40) recommended Louis van Gaal to coach the German national team.

Germany’s Bild reported on the 14th (Korean time), “Philip Lahm supported Louis van Gaal as Hansi Flick’s successor. He highly praised coach Van Gaal’s leadership.”

The German Football Federation (DFB) officially announced the dismissal of coach Hansi Flick on its official website on the 10th. The German national soccer team, led by coach Flick, lost 1-4 in a friendly match against Japan held at the Volkswagen Arena in Wolfsburg, Germany on the 10th.

Previously, in the group stage of the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup, Germany failed to advance to the round of 16 after losing 1-2 to Japan. On the other hand, Japan survived the ‘Group of Death’ as ​​first place and advanced to the round of 16.

Germany, which is about to host the Euros, performed poorly in the Nations League following the World Cup. With a desperate mindset, they attempted to make a leap forward by inviting Japan, who had humiliated them in the last World Cup, to their home, but instead they were completely defeated and could not escape the shock.메이저놀이터

Previously, Bild began searching for candidates for the next head coach and posted a list of candidates for Flick’s successor. Oliver Glasner, Miroslav Klose, Rudi Voehler, Matthias Sammer, Louis van Gaal, Lothar Matheus, Zinedine Zidane, and Julian Nagelsmann were among the names, and Jurgen Klinsmann, coach of the South Korean national soccer team, was also included.

Among these candidates, Lahm actively recommended director Van Gaal.

Coach Van Gaal has led AFC Ajax since 1991, and later led the Netherlands national team, FC Barcelona, ​​AZ Alkmaar, and Bayern Munich.

Although Van Gaal left a ‘dark history’ by failing to succeed at Manchester United, where he took charge relatively recently in 2014, he is one of the best managers in Europe who has lifted trophies for each club he has been in charge of.

The media reported, “Lahm, the director of Euro 2024, recommended coach Van Gaal to be appointed as the new German national team coach.”

According to the report, Lahm gave the reason for the recommendation, saying, “As a coach, Van Gaal emphasizes discipline, order and structure in his team’s play. He conveys this to the players in very clear words.”

In the past, when he was playing for the German national team and Bayern Munich, Lahm was famous for having a strict look at coach Jurgen Klinsmann, criticizing him in his autobiography by saying, “There wasn’t much tactical training. I focused on physical training.”

Lahm, who was coached by coach Van Gaal in Munich from 2009 to 2011, added the reason for his recommendation by saying, “I have Van Gaal’s strong personality and also have a wealth of experience in club soccer.”

Meanwhile, Coach Van Gaal said, “It is an honor to be nominated as one of the candidates. However, there is no history of entrusting the German national team to a foreign coach.”
