“I want to win 1-0.”
Lee Min-seong, head coach of Daejeon Hana Citizen, carefully revealed the goal of the match. It was a promise to pay back the defeat (3-5) suffered by Suwon FC a month ago with a clean sheet victory.
Daejeon will play the 12th round home game of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ against Suwon FC at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 10th. Currently, Daejeon is doing quite well. Although it is a promoted team this season, it is currently marking 4th place in the league (5 wins, 3 draws, 3 losses, 18 points) with solid performance. If you beat Suwon FC on this day and add 3 points, you will rise to 3rd place at once.
However, coach Lee calmly emphasized, “(Currently) the ranking is not important.” It was a word that was concerned that the early propaganda might loosen the concentration. Coach Lee cautioned against inattention, saying, “There is a big difference in game management between players who have played in K-League 1 for several years and players who have just come up from K-League 2.” As a good example, I mentioned the case of Gwangju FC, which lost 1-3 to FC Seoul the day before. Gwangju is a team that has been promoted to the K-League 1 this season along with Daejeon. As expected, they showed good performance in the early stages, but are currently somewhat behind in 7th place.
Coach Lee said, “I don’t think Gwangju didn’t play well. Looking at the tough game from the second round, I think (promoted team) has homework to overcome,” he said, expressing his position that he would make a good decision. In the same vein, he emphasized that he would not be greedy against Suwon FC and would achieve a ‘1-0’ victory. 안전놀이터
