The one who enjoys is first-class! The secret of the blast from Gimpo is ‘Carpe Diem’

Carpe Diem. There is a soccer team that fits this Latin term meaning ‘enjoy the present moment’ best. Gimpo FC, which is leading the K-League 2 this season.

When Gimpo, who was expected to be weak, took a surprise lead at the beginning of the season, congratulations and worried eyes followed. However, Gimpo enjoys this moment more than anyone else and is faithful to the work in front of him.

Gimpo drew 0-0 in the home game against Seongnam FC in the 11th round of Hana 1 Q K League 2 2023 held at Salter Soccer Field in Gimpo, Gyeonggi-do at 7:30 pm on the 3rd. Adding 1 point, they maintained 1st place in the undefeated K League 2 with 6 wins and 4 draws (22 points).

Although they ended their 4-game winning streak with a draw that day, Gimpo, who is leading the K-League 2 at the beginning of this season, is having a blast. Gimpo coach Go Jeong-woon was not lying when he promised to punish strong teams on Media Day ahead of the opening game. They defeated all the strong teams in the K League 2, such as FC Anyang, Busan I-Park, and Gimcheon Sangmu, and kept the ‘undefeated 1st place’ with 6 wins and 4 draws in 10 matches. It is the only undefeated team throughout K-League 1 and 2 this season.

Considering that in the second year since Gimpo was founded as a professional team, it was the lowest in total player salary expenditure (about 1.8 billion won) among the 23 teams in the K-League last season, this is a great performance. It wasn’t that there weren’t any outstanding signings this season.

Based on the amount of activity that Gimpo has been doing since last season, the local defense practiced throughout the winter took root in pressure football, and it took first place with the least conceded 4 runs in 10 games. The defense has become more solid, and the newly recruited “South American striker trio,” Luis, Juninho, and Pablo, also faithfully join ㅋㅋㅋ벳 the defense as if they had previously played together. In Gimpo football, where players score goals with quick attacks after active defense, Lewis is leading the K League 2 scoring team with 6 goals in 10 games. Coach Go Jeong-woon also expressed satisfaction before the match, saying, “Last season, there were limits to defending because no goals were scored, but this season, the coordination of offense and defense is well done.”
