South Korea Fires Klinsmann After Brawl Between Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in

Captain Son Heung-min engaged in a physical altercation with teammate Lee Kang-in before the team exited the Asian Cup. As a result, South Korea fires Klinsmann as the team’s head coach. Also, the Korean Football Association said that Klinsmann failed to show his competence in managing the National Football Team.

In the wake of South Korea’s Asian Cup failure and the revelation of the fight between Son, the country’s most famous player, and Lee, a promising young player, anger has been building up toward Klinsmann’s national team leadership.

According to the latest sports news reports, an official from the Korean Football Association (KFA) confirmed earlier this week that Son, the star and captain of Tottenham Hotspur, and Lee, a member of the French Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain, argued table tennis before South Korea’s 2-0 semifinal loss to Jordan on February 6.

South Korea Fires Klinsmann After Brawl Between Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-inAccording to pay per head bookie reports, the KFA cannot confirm more information. The humiliating setback against Jordan—ranked No. 87 in FIFA’s world rankings—was felt by the 23rd-ranked South Korean team.

Images and footage captured on the day of the Jordan match reveal Son wearing a white bandage that connects two fingers on his right hand. According to a statement released by Lee’s attorney, Kim Ga-ram, the athlete “truly regrets and reflects on his wrongdoings.”

Kim issued a statement denying rumors that Lee “threw a fist in Son Heung-min’s face after he gripped the back of Lee Kang-in’s neck. Also, he added that the South Korean squad often plays table tennis. According to pay per head sources, Lee apologized to his South Korean supporters in a story on Instagram.

The KFA advisory group recommended Klinsmann’s dismissal from his position on Thursday, citing his ineffective leadership, insufficient player discovery efforts, and insufficient time spent in South Korea as grounds for dismissal. After commenting that their opponents “wanted it more,” Klinsmann doubted his team’s determination following the Jordan setback.
