Jeju United head coach Nam Ki-il spoke of regret and survival at the same time in the world of competition.
Jeju will play the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 8th round home game against Jeonbuk Hyundai at 4:30 pm on the 23rd at the Jeju World Cup Stadium.
Recently, Jeju is on a winning streak overcoming the sluggishness in the early stages. After the opening, they suffered from 5 consecutive draws (2 draws, 3 losses), but succeeded in changing the atmosphere with 2 consecutive wins. Including the FA Cup, they are on a three-game winning streak.
Before the game, coach Nam laughed at Jeonbuk’s general offensive notice, saying, “The cheek was hit elsewhere,” and “Just one more hit and go.”
On this day, Jeju’s Yuri, Ji Sang-wook, Kim Dae-hwan, Lee Ju-yong, Koo Ja-cheol, Lee Chang-min, Ahn Hyun-beom, Kim Bong-soo, Kim Joo-won, Kim Oh-kyu, and Kim Dong-jun (GK) go first. Most of the protagonists of the three consecutive wins are used as they are.
Director Nam revealed the background of the line-up composition, saying, “I continue to show good capabilities,” and “I will continue to maintain the parts that I can bring like confidence.” He looked back, saying, “I think the atmosphere has risen more as he did well in a difficult game,” and “The players, centered on Koo Ja-cheol, followed very well.”
Regarding Jeong-woon, who returned from injury and was on the substitute list, he said, “He said that he was in better shape than expected,” and “He was the player we needed and he had the will to play on his own.”
Jeju defeated Suwon Samsung in the last round. As a result of this day, Suwon Samsung sacked manager Lee Byeong-geun. This opponent also faces Jeonbuk coach Kim Sang-sik, whose position has greatly narrowed.
Director Nam said, “The situation in Jeonbuk is of course burdensome,” but “It seems like a very sad reality from the same manager’s point of view.” Then, he conveyed words of consolation, saying, “I hope director Kim Sang-sik will gain strength.”토토사이트
He also recalled the Suwon Samsung Exhibition, saying, “If I think the opposite, I could go out.” In addition, he said, “It’s unfortunate and this seems to be reality.”
Lastly, coach Nam emphasized winning the home game rather than focusing on winning streaks. Jeju has not won a home game since last summer. Coach Nam expressed his will to win, saying, “I am more concerned because there is no victory that fans expect.”
