Flexible coping with concerns and ‘hit’ by choice… Jeonbuk turned crisis into opportunity

Jeonbuk Hyundai’s flexible response and choice fit perfectly.

Jeonbuk Hyundai won 3-0 against Suwon Samsung in the 12th round of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ held at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 7:30 pm on the 10th. With this victory, Jeonbuk moved up to 7th place in the league and won in 4 games.

Jeonbuk’s starting list announced prior to the game did not have a single professional fullback. Jeonbuk’s defense, which came out with a 4-1-4-1 formation, was in charge of Maeng Seong-woong, Kim Gun-woong, Jung Tae-wook, and Koo Ja-ryong. Maeng Seong-woong, who played as left fullback, is a midfielder, and Koo Ja-ryong, who has been named as right fullback, is center back.

Regarding this, acting manager Kim Doo-hyun said, “Everyone is injured, so there is no professional fullback except for Choi Chul-soon. Kim Jin-soo (injury) and Kim Moon-hwan (discipline) are unable to participate,” he said, explaining the reason for not including a professional fullback in the starting list.

Regarding the problems that can arise when playing without a professional fullback, “It is good to have a professional fullback like Kim Jin-soo or Kim Moon-hwan. But this time, I gave the players roles and presented options. If the players choose those options well, I think another color of soccer will come out,” he said, adding that depending on the players’ choices, they can expect different games.

Jeonbuk’s tactics were operated in a hybrid form. Midfielder Maeng Seong-woong became a so-called ‘inverted fullback’ with a center-oriented movement and participated in midfield fights and build-ups. Jeonbuk attacked from the rear in various ways, such as Maeng Seong-woong standing next to defensive midfielder Park Jin-seop in the third line, Park Jin-seop going down between Kim Gun-woong and Jeong Tae-wook, and Kim Gun-woong, Jeong Tae-wook, and Koo Ja-ryong making the back three.

In particular, Maeng Seong-woong showed his presence by helping Moon Seon-min score the first goal in 21 seconds of the first half. Also, thanks to Maeng Sung-woong paying attention to the rear build-up, Baek Seung-ho was able to rise to a high position and actively participate in the attack. On this day, Baek Seung-ho scored two goals. 안전놀이터

After the game, acting manager Kim Doo-hyun explained the advantages of Maeng Seong-woong and Koo Ja-ryong, who were deployed as fullbacks, and said, “In soccer, the ball circulates well when the players are in the position they need to be. I think it depends on how you spread the ball forward when the opponent presses. I made a difference in that part,” he said, looking back at the game.
