“Half of the power.”
Daegu FC brought Gwangju FC home in the 7th round of the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 held at DGB Daegu Bank Park on the 16th and lost 3-4.
He showed off his ability to turn 0-3 into 3-3. At the start of the second half, the effect of Sedga (Sezingya + Edgar) was put to good use and the balance of the game was set at the starting point, but at the end of the second half, they gave up one more goal and bowed their heads bitterly.
After the game, Daegu coach Choi Won-kwon said, “I feel bad because I couldn’t win. It’s the same with the last point. He prepared to not concede in the first half, but he had to change his plan as he did. Oh Seung-hoon was injured and made an unwanted substitution. In the second half, we played the game we wanted, and the players showed their fighting spirit until the last minute. I don’t feel good because I lost, but the content of the game in the second half is positive.”
3 goals in the first half are disappointing. Coach Choi said, “One of our team’s weaknesses is the build-up in the defensive camp. Even if it’s not a quality pass, the basic build-up needs to be improved a little more. You have to build your players accordingly. Gwangju also had a good defensive organization, so I didn’t think it would be easy to score, but I conceded. I should have endured and went to the second half.”
After the first half, we wanted to awaken the ‘mental power’ of the players. “I emphasized the mental part. It is possible to concede, but the aggressiveness in the attack was emphasized. In Gwangju, all 11 players dribble and do whatever they want, but our players showed a look of running away with their heads down, so we talked strongly. I quickly changed it to a four-back because the build-up didn’t work in a three-back. The number of attacks increased, so the opponent couldn’t prepare.”
Sejinya’s toes shone. After being substituted in the second half, he made several chances while walking around the front. For example, the 2nd and 3rd goals started from Cesinya. Director Choi said, “I think it is 50% of the power. He can lead other players not only in terms of performance, but also in form and leading ability. He is an indispensable player. Due to Sejingya’s arrival, Hwang Jae-won, Edgar, and Lee Geun-ho are less checked. From the next game, I will try to return to Daegu.”
Ko Jae-hyun scores multiple goals. Coach Choi said, “I want to hug and kiss every game. Professional players have to show up on the field. Jaehyun came up from the 2nd group and became the main axis. He feels proud to be one of the most needed players. I want to help more. He is a grateful player,” he said with a smile. 안전놀이터
7 goals were scored. Coach Choi said, “If there are a lot of goals, it is an interesting factor. At home, scoring goals and not conceding is the best. The football I want is one that wins 1-0, not 4-3. It is not easy to concede to Gwangju. However, the players seemed to stick to the end and not give up. It would be comforting to follow three goals. The result is my responsibility and I have to take the curse. I will prepare to return home with a smile in the game against Hana Citizen in Daejeon.”
