Each player will receive 50 million won in incentives if the Klinsmanns win their first Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup title in 64 years.
The Korea Football Association said Thursday that it held a board meeting at the Jongno Football Hall in Jongno-gu, Seoul, to finalize the amount of incentive payments for major international tournaments, including the Asian Cup in Qatar next January-February.
The men’s national soccer team, led by coach Jürgen Klinsmann, is aiming to win the Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years since the second edition in Seoul in 1960.
In the event of a victory, Klinsmann and the national team’s coaching staff will receive separate incentive payments according to the terms of the contract they signed when they were appointed.
Meanwhile, the 22 players who helped Korea win the men’s soccer title at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games in September and October will each receive 20 million won in incentives.
Kim Hak-beom-ho, who won gold at the last Asian Games in Jakarta-Palembang 2018, will receive 15 million won each.
The incentives for the women’s national team players who competed at the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in July and August were also confirmed today at 30,000 U.S. dollars (about $39 million) per player, in line with FIFA’s pledge to distribute the prize money. 먹튀검증
