Reporter Kim Do-yong = Jo Min-gyu (33), who returned to Ulsan Hyundai after 3 years, was successful. Although he did not have offensive points such as scoring and assisting, he led the opening game victory by constantly harassing the opposing defense and goalkeeper. With Joo Min-kyu joining, the spear tip of the ‘defending champion’ Ulsan became even sharper.
Ulsan won a 2-1 come-from-behind victory in the opening game of the 2023 Hana One Q K League 1 against Jeonbuk Hyundai held at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium on the 25th.
On this day, Ulsan gave up the opening goal despite the fact that last season’s captain and K-League’s best player (MVP) Lee Cheong-yong was absent.
Eom Won-sang, who scored the equalizer, Rubikson, who scored a come-from-behind goal by stealing the ball through strong pressure, and Ataru Esaka, the new Japanese midfielder, showed impressive performances in the attack.
Joo Min-kyu, who was at the forefront, also contributed to the victory with outstanding performance. Joo Min-gyu, who scored the most goals (39 goals) in the K-League for the past two seasons in a row, was not greedy for goals in Jeonbuk’s intensive check, and focused on playing with his teammates to shake the opponent’s defense.
Joo Min-gyu did not hesitate to shoot when he had a chance, and he did not lose out to Jeonbuk’s defense even in the aerial competition. In particular, he shook Jeonbuk’s defense through link play with his teammates.
After the match, coach Hong Myung-bo applauded, saying, “Ju Min-gyu missed a good chance, but I’m satisfied with the overall performance.” Eom Won-sang also explained that Joo Min-gyu’s addition greatly helped the attack, saying, “2 or 3 Jeonbuk defenders closely defended Min-gyu-hyung, leaving space open. did. 메이저사이트
Joo Min-gyu said, “I made a lot of effort to hear that the team became stronger after I joined Ulsan.” I focused on the game to play a game that suits the team,” he said before returning.
Joo Min-gyu, who scored the most goals in the K-League for the past two years, put down a lot by moving to Ulsan. Joo Min-gyu put the team ahead of himself, saying, “I think I definitely have a role to play in Ulsan. I want to contribute a lot to the team, whether it’s a goal or an assist.”
Joo Min-gyu plans to actively help his new teammates Um Won-sang and Martin Adam to help Ulsan win the championship for the second year in a row. Joo Min-gyu only helped 1 when he scored 22 goals in 2021, but he also opened his eyes to the role of helper, scoring 17 goals last year and recording 7 assists.
Joo Min-gyu said, “Last year (Eom) Won-sang did not get much attention even though he played well. This year, I hope to score more goals.”
He continued, “I also trained on the two-top tactic with Adam. When I play with Adam, I, who has experience as a midfielder, comes down to the midfield and takes on the role of linking up. There will be,” he added.
With Joo Min-gyu, who put down the burden and greed for scoring, Ulsan added sharpness to the attack through various attack patterns and tactics. Ulsan’s tip is expected to be more threatening to the opponent.
