“He doesn’t look like a new player” Coach Kim Eun-joong admires Son’s class

“I’m preparing to coexist with Yoon Beom-garam”

Head coach Kim Eun-joong is looking forward to the synergy of Son Jun-ho (32) and Yoon Bit-garam (34).

Suwon FC defeated Gwangju FC 1-0 in the 19th round of the Hana Bank K League 1 2024 at the Suwon Sports Complex at 7:30 p.m. on May 25.

With the win, Suwon FC snapped a two-game losing streak and remained in fifth place with nine wins, three draws and seven losses and 30 points. Just one point separates them from fourth-place Gangwon (31), who have played one game less. Gwangju, on the other hand, suffered back-to-back defeats to remain in sixth place with seven wins, one draw and 11 losses and 22 points.

A single goal separated the two sides. In the 30th minute of the second half, Jung Seung-won’s powerful right-footed shot deflected off a defender and found the back of the net. Gwangju created several shots in the second half, but lacked the finishing touch. Suwon FC tried to lock down the game by bringing on Jackson, a tall defender, and thanks to some good saves from goalkeeper Ahn Jun-soo, the match ended goalless.

After the match, head coach Kim Eun-joong said, “The home crowd’s support gave the players a lot of strength and I think it went well. I’m grateful to the players for being patient as we prepared. Today could have been a dangerous moment, but I think the players found their form. We went into the match thinking about the basics in terms of preparation and attitude, and that’s why we were able to get the result we wanted,” said Kim after the victory.

Kim Eun-joong called up Seung-woo Lee, the nation’s top scorer (9 goals), in the second half when the score was 0-0. “Seung-woo is a player who is usually injury-free. However, he complained of pain today, so we had to take him off to protect him.”

He also expressed his concerns about the lack of strikers. “It’s actually very difficult,” Kim said. ‘How long can we go on without a striker’ is the hardest part as a coach. In a situation where offensive resources are severely lacking, midfielders who are not traditional strikers are scoring goals for us. It’s hard to know how long we can keep going,” he said.

Luckily, Jung Seung-won is doing his part with four league goals. It’s a far cry from his two years at Suwon, where he was in a slump. “It’s true that his 토토사이트 form dropped a lot when he was at Suwon. When I tried to sign him, there were many concerns around him. They said he’s a broken player and can’t be saved, but I was confident, and I knew Seung-won’s strengths,” he said encouragingly.

He continued, “Seung-won came to our team with a relaxed mindset in that regard, and he’s been doing so well. I think he has found more than 90% of his old form. He’s a player who can get better in the future. He’s also a player who works hard for the team, so I was confident in saving him. I think Seung-won is proving it now,” he added.

Son Junho came on as a substitute in the 10th minute of the second half and played about 40 minutes, including extra time. Coach Kim Eun-joong said, “I want to use him in the starting lineup because he’s so ready. As you can see today, he doesn’t look like a new player. He helps the players a lot in terms of game management and coordination. In fact, we played a lot without substitutions. It was tough, but we kept playing through it, and I think it’s a chance to ease the pressure on Yoon.”

Coach Kim Eun-joong is thinking about the coexistence of Son Jun-ho and Yoon Bit-garam. He said, “It depends on the situation, but we are preparing to coexist if 토토사이트 추천 possible. Also, we have to change the game plan depending on the team, so I think the midfield will be better if we go for coexistence if their physical condition improves.”

With the win, Suwon FC extended its home winning streak to four games. “I think the players have more confidence at home,” said Kim Eun-joong. In fact, even against Seoul, we were nervous because we played in front of a large crowd, so we need to overcome that. We are determined not to lose at home, so it was difficult today, but I think we managed to hold on to the 1-0 victory,” said Kim.
