“I think the players have done everything.”
Daejeon Hana Citizen defeated Ulsan Hyundai 2-1 in the 7th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium at 4:30 pm on the 16th. As a result, Daejeon ranked 3rd with 14 points (4 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss), while leader Ulsan suffered its first loss of the season and maintained 18 points (6 wins, 1 loss).
Daejeon drove hard from the beginning, as coach Lee Min-seong said before the game, “To stop Ulsan, we must attack first.” As a result, in the 9th minute of the first half, Lee Jin-hyun scored the first goal by inducing an opponent’s mistake, and Lee Hyun-shik’s winning goal just before the end of the first half won the game.
After the game, coach Lee Min-seong said, “I think we won by playing evil. The players were strong in their determination even in difficult situations. I am also grateful to Thiago and Leandro for running to the end despite injuries. I think the players did their best.”
▲ The following is a Q&A with director Lee Min-seong.
– Manager Hong Myung-bo said that Daejeon’s aggressive football would set a good precedent.
I tried defensively in the second division and tried everything. In a way, I think the saying ‘the best defense is the offense’ is correct. You have to be aggressive so you can prevent your opponent from doing well. Also, given the composition of the players, we do better when we play aggressively. This kind of soccer is the concept our team should continue to take.
– Blocked Ulsan with 1 goal. What did you order the players at halftime?
I didn’t say anything special. He ordered to press from the front instead of getting down. Even if you lose, you have to show a fighting spirit starting from going out aggressively at home. I thought it was undesirable to give up all the initiative without being able to do anything we could.
I said the same thing at halftime. He said he hoped to play higher. It seems that the effect was the same until the end. It would be regrettable if it was regrettable that Kim In-gyun and Shin Sang-eun were still injured and could not be more aggressive. 먹튀검증
– Goalkeeper Lee Chang-geun’s performance was dazzling.
You have to keep doing that. There are times when it’s too strange to lose points. After the game against Suwon FC, I asked if I was conceding too many points, but he said he would not score a goal against Ulsan. So I decided to believe it. For a player with that level of ability, it is right for the coach to wait. He himself is two years old, but he thinks he is still enlightening. He should be better at blocking.
– You overcame the aftermath of the reverse defeat against Suwon FC last time.
Advantages are advantages and disadvantages are disadvantages. Only on days when the players lose a game, they look a bit unfair and sad. After that, the tension rises as usual. So he wasn’t too worried. Especially since it was Ulsan, I don’t think there was any more pressure.
