 Q. Is there anything you can disclose
 about the guide: First of all, we heard the requirements from the Korea Football Association. We made five guidelines. The first is professionalism, and the second is the director’s experience. The third is how motivating this manager is, and the fourth is teamwork ability. Lastly, personally, I would like to name it as an environmental factor. We plan to take into account how well I, the Korea Football Association, and the coach can satisfy each other, and how well I can adapt to Korea, not just soccer, but outside of soccer issues, for example. However, all of this has to be looked at from an individual point of view, so I will be reviewing my resume. This can be seen as a general guideline.

 Q. Are you planning to disclose the process of appointing a director?
 : First of all, I would like to say that we are proceeding with such a logical and comprehensive selection process. To some extent, I will make a list and conduct interviews. We will narrow down the list by evaluating the interviews. He plans to report to the association and even sign an autograph after the final negotiations. The head coach is important as a leader, so we will also look at leading the coaching staff.

 : Of course I am German, but I have to think internationally. As I said before, I am thinking with all directions open. The process for the seniority process was explained, and the criteria were also discussed. In the future, we will proceed with this work step by step and continue to provide information as possible.

 : I have changed many systems while working for the Football Association for 4 and a half years. We need to think about how to develop this in the future. Other national teams must develop, but we will also develop individual players and coaches. You cannot open the windows on the basement floor when you are outside. So I will act as a communicator to ensure that leaders and teams communicate smoothly.

 Q. You said you would inherit the football philosophy of your former coach, what do you see as your strengths, and what are the world football trends?

 As for the second question, I watched all the matches at the Qatar World Cup with KFA TSG. I don’t think there are any weak or strong teams anymore. In particular, it seems that the three teams that advanced to the semifinals or higher had a strong fighting spirit. It seems that the dynamic part has increased. He did not just run fast, but showed dynamic parts in the decision-making process. Second, diversity has increased. Teams varied in tactics between games. The individual development was also amazing, and the teamwork was the same. And he had psyche.

 Q. I know that the deadline for appointing a director is in February, but could it be delayed further if the process is left blank?
 : There is always a difficult part in the soccer business to predict a specific date. More important than that is going in the right direction. Rather than unconditionally quickly, I am confident that I can be appointed as a manager according to our procedures. 온라인카지노
