Standing in front of the reporters ahead of training, Kim Young-kwon said, “Coach Klinsman was very famous as a player, and the players are looking forward to it because he has a lot of experience in other countries’ national teams. I joined with such anticipation of what kind of football he will show in the future.” 메이저사이트
