Coach Choi Yong-soo of Gangwon FC, who is having a difficult early season due to a severe slump, emphasized the importance of scoring to the players once again.
Gangwon drew 0-0 in the 8th round of the Hanawon Q K League 1 2023 against Gwangju FC held at the Gwangju Soccer Stadium on the 23rd.
With this, Gangwon has been in 11th place since the opening of this season, ending with a winless streak of 8 games (4 draws and 4 losses).
After the game, coach Choi Yong-soo said, “I was desperate to win the first game, but the result was disappointing. My head is quite complicated.” I had several chances to score, but I missed them. I will recover well until the match against FC Seoul on the 26th and achieve my first goal.”먹튀검증
On this day, Gangwon only attempted 2 effective shots in 90 minutes. One of these was a direct shot by Yoon Seok-young from a free kick situation, and the remaining one was Yang Hyun-joon’s attempt in extra time in the second half.
In the extra time of the second half, Yang Hyeon-jun received a pass from Kim Dae-won and faced the goalkeeper one-on-one, but his shot was blocked by the goalkeeper and failed to score.
Coach Choi Yong-soo said, “I am a player who is attracting attention in the K-League, and I am looking forward to it, but depending on whether I make a good opportunity or not, I can remain an ordinary player.” If he had put in, he and the team would have been able to survive, but it’s a pity.
Due to the frustrating attack, coach Choi Yong-soo could not laugh at the first goalless game this season. Coach Choi said, “The players were very focused on defense. Also, goalkeeper Lee Gwang-yeon, who played for the first time in about a year, made a good save. But to get the points he wanted, he needed goals,” he said. It’s not good,” he said, emphasizing improving his attack power.
Although Gangwon did not achieve the desired results, players such as Kim Dae-woo, Lee Woong-hee, and Park Sang-hyuk, who had not been given many opportunities, struggled and saw hope.
Manager Choi Yong-soo also said, “Kevin has to leave for a long time due to a stress fracture. Lee Jeong-hyeop also has to watch for four more weeks, and Kim Jin-ho has a muscle injury. The internal situation is not very good, but the new players have done better than expected. They showed a particularly active appearance. The growth will have a positive effect on the team,” applauded the new faces.
