Korean Keeper is Dick’s Biggest Advocaat
You can call Lee Woon-jae a lot of things but foolish isn’t one of them.
The Korean keeper has published a collection of essays comparing the various national team coaches for whom he has played. In what must come as a surprise to no one, he has positive things to say about his current coach Dick Advocaat, you know, the guy who Lee wants to play for and would be absolutely foolish to criticize. Says Lee of his Dutch coach:
“He is not as hard as iron as we first thought he would be. He is professional enough to know how to separate official and personal affairs.”
Also not surprising is the veteran keepers comments about former Korean national team coach Humberto Coelho, you know, the guy nobody in the country liked and therefore is easy to criticize. He apparently separated official and personal affairs a wee bit too much for Lee’s tastes.
“The principle of laissez faire was the tactic Coelho used to coach us, but it didn’t work well and he had to face loneliness,” Lee said.
There is nothing worse than a coach who faces loneliness.
