“The feeling was new.”

Ulsan Hyundai striker Ju Min-gyu scored three consecutive goals in an away game against Jeju United in the 5th round of the ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ held at Jeju World Cup Stadium on the 2nd. Ulsan also won 3-1, and ran a five-game winning streak.

Joo Min-gyu was Jeju’s key striker for three seasons until last season. However, he moved to Ulsan this season and visited Jeju home ground for the first time. Starting off, he received a pass from Eom Won-sang in the 17th minute of the first half and shook the Jeju net with a sensational right-footed shot. After scoring, Joo Min-gyu held a ceremony to Jeju fans by putting their hands together.

After the match, Joo Min-gyu said, “It was a new feeling to come to Jeju. He wanted to do better than other games, so he was nervous. It is a stadium with good memories. Still, I think it was a good day because I won. It is not easy for any team to win 5 games in a row. Even though there are good players, they fight as ‘one team’ while sacrificing. It seems that my confidence is gradually gaining and it becomes a driving force.”

Regarding the scene for the first goal, Um Won-sang, who assisted, was highly evaluated. Joo Min-gyu said, “I think (Um) Won-sang’s share is 99%. If you give a return (you can shoot), there was only one angle. I never imagined it would come like that,” he explained. 메이저사이트

Joo Min-gyu went to the cheering booth in Jeju after the game to say hello. He said, “I have memories of scoring a lot of goals and responding (in front of the cheering seats) while I was in Jeju for three years. He held a ceremony to express his apologies for meeting with the opposing team and scoring a goal. I think I did it instinctively,” he said. “Jeju fans called my name, and I was able to feel a lot of love once again over the past three years. I think Jeju is a team that will definitely rebound and rise to a good rank. I want Ulsan to do well and Jeju to do well,” he said.

Joo Min-gyu personally watched the match against Colombia in March at Munsu Stadium in Ulsan. As manager Jurgen Klinsmann took over the new helm, Ju Min-gyu’s boarding continued to be a matter of interest. He said, “I saw it for the first time in the Ulsan crowd. First of all, I think I can appeal more if I do well in the team. I will show a good image in the future.”
