FC Seoul Kim Jin-gyu, who started the super match as the head coach, said, “I brought a fighter.”
Suwon coach Kim Byeong-su said, “Players need to recognize that they can play when they are pushed back.”
“The Suwon fans were booing today. Do you feel at ease?”
Acting Seoul coach Kim Jin-gyu said this while sitting in front of reporters ahead of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 29th round match
between Suwon Samsung and FC Seoul held at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 2nd.
Acting Director Kim is a person whose name has been mentioned many times in the history of Super Match.
He has been active as a center back for Seoul with a strong fighting spirit for a long time and is revered as a ‘legend’ by the club’s fans, but fans of Suwon, a rival club, also really like him. 온라인카지노
This is because during his active years, whenever he faced Suwon,
he often showed poor performance, such as scoring an own goal or missing an easy shot.
Even in the 2005 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) group stage match against Suwon,
where Jubilo Iwata (Japan) played instead of Seoul, he contributed a penalty kick, leading to a 0-1 loss.
That’s why Suwon fans tease Kim, calling him ‘Suwon’s 13th player.’
Assistant Manager Kim said, “My name is mentioned in the Super Match.
Seoul fans and Suwon fans also like me.
“I liked it so much that they even applauded me when I came to Big Bird Suwon World Cup Stadium,
but today they booed me when they saw me,” he said with a laugh.
“I think the Suwon fans are very at ease.”
“I will bite the bullet and prepare well,” he said.
In super matches, the winner was often decided by the players’ mental strength and fighting spirit rather than their skills.
Acting Director Kim said, “I emphasized to the players that the super match has nothing to do with rankings,” and added, “We brought calm fighters.
Among them, there should be three ‘Kim Jin-gyu’ (rough players).
Then we will dominate them.” said.
Suwon coach Kim Byung-soo, who was in a bad mood after losing 0-4 in the previous game against Gwangju FC,
smiled and said, “In games like this, we have no choice but to emphasize mental strength as a courtesy.”
He continued, “Our players must acknowledge that we may be playing a little behind, it is important to continue to maintain our mentality.”
