As the opening of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is imminent, tensions are rising in the Korean national football team led by coach Paulo Bento.
In particular, coach Bento reacted sensitively to the disclosure of the training content of players recovering from injuries, including ace Son Heung-min (Tottenham), and started a conflict.
On this day, as usual, only 15 minutes of the national team’s training was revealed to the reporters.
Except for the 14th, the first day of Qatar’s arrival, the reporters could only watch the training of the national team for 15 minutes at all times.
Even on the 17th, when they trained twice a day, in the morning and in the afternoon, the open time was 15 minutes each.
After the training on the 17th, a media representative for the national team said, “Son Heung-min, Hwang Hee-chan, and Kim Jin-soo did not complete tactical training with other players, but they trained with a clearer intensity than before. .” I increased the intensity by turning the ball and shooting.”
However, the media briefing after training was not held on this day. This seems to be because coach Bento is reluctant to reveal the training content of injured players such as Son Heung-min, who is preparing for the World Cup after undergoing surgery for an orbital fracture, through the media.
The Korean national team will play its first match against Uruguay on the 24th.
