The topic of the game that day was the appointment of national team leftback Lee Ki-je as right wingback. At the post-game press conference, Acting Assistant Choi Seong-yong said, “The reason Lee Ki-je’s position changed several times during the game was because I was preparing tactically and trying to have a lot of midfielders depending on the opponent with the back 3.” I tried to do it, so I moved Lee Ki-je forward like a back 4 throughout the game.”
He added, “As the goal was released, the situation went wrong and the players were embarrassed. I tried to put Lee Ki-je at the center of the team for a longer time, and as a result, I lowered Lee Ki-je again.”
When asked if he had any conversations with former coach Lee Byung-geun, who left the team, Choi said, “The words coach Lee said while leaving the team were, ‘The result is important to the fans who support Suwon, but the atmosphere where they can do their best without giving up until the end.

Regarding the opinion that the team’s lack of confidence needs to be addressed, he said, “The players have a lot of pressure from the current results and the bad stories they see and hear, and the players feel heavy because they can’t escape their responsibility.”

The evaluation continued that the power difference between Seoul and Suwon was clearly revealed. After thinking about it for a while, Acting Choi said, “There are parts that I have to admit. The reason why the strong team and the weak team were divided is because of the results and performance. I think you saw it that way today too. I think soccer is a clash of bodies and there are tactical strategies, but the players are the best I did my best. The lack of me and the parts that had not produced results before that were harmonized, and it was seen through the eyes of the strong team and the weak team.”
He continued, “I hope there are many good players on the team, and it would be nice if there were many representative players and foreign players, but you know the number of people we can currently use. The players do not give up and are working hard until the end. I will never give up, but the coaching staff will think hard and try harder to keep the players’ spirit alive and not give up.”
Lastly, Acting Choi said, “It may have been an unpleasant performance after showing poor results to those who support us. The players did their best during the time they prepared and the time they spent together. I will try to move forward. I’m sorry to the fans and I’m sorry that I gave you disappointment and more worries in my first game as an acting coach. I’ll try my best with the players until the end as much as the time given to find out what way there is a way,” he concluded. did.
