Lee Min-seong, head coach of Daejeon Hana Citizen, emphasized the need to bet on the odds to advance to the Final A.
Coach Lee said, “I don’t know how the week went after the loss in the last round,” ahead of the 26th round match of the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 against FC Seoul held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 13th. can’t get in the mood It seems that persistence is also lacking.”스포츠토토
There is nowhere to retreat. Currently, a fierce fight is going on in the K-League 1 mid-table. Right now, the difference between Gwangju (37 points) in 5th place and Incheon United (33 points) in 9th place is only 4 points. 8th place Daejeon is also tied with Incheon on points. In order to finish the regular round with Final A, we need to manage the points better from now on.
“There are eight games left. In order to go to Final A, you have to decide to live and die game by game,” he said. “You have to experience and endure these things to develop into a strong team. You have to grit your teeth,” he said.
Coach Lee came out with an aggressive 4-3-3 formation. He said, “In the last game, there were three center backs, but we scored three goals. I don’t know if I need to do a three-back. I’m going to try to attack,” he said, professing that he would operate aggressively against Seoul.
Daejeon met Seoul twice this season and recorded 1 win and 1 draw. There is also a good memory of winning the first home game we met. Coach Lee said, “The performance of the past match does not guarantee today’s result,” and said that he forgot the opponent’s record and prepared for a new match.
Meanwhile, Seoul coach Ahn Ik-soo, who was sent off with accumulated warnings in the last round, cannot sit on the bench. Instead, head coach Kim Jin-gyu leads the team.
Coach Kim said, “The coach and the coaching staff communicated and prepared. I don’t think there will be any big problems. “The coach told me to do it comfortably,” he said. “Today’s game will be enough motivation for the players. Against Daejeon, they only scored one point this year. Today, the result and the three points are more important than the content of the game. The players are also aware of it,” he said, revealing his will to win.
