Yeom Ki-hoon, the mental support of the Suwon Samsung team, lowered his head, saying that it was harder than last year when he played the relegation playoffs (PO).
On the 30th at 4:30 pm at the Suwon World Cup Stadium, Suwon, who had the 10th round of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023, lost 0-1 to Daegu FC. With 8,468 spectators in attendance, Suwon again failed to win their first match. Suwon, which is at the bottom of the league’s 12 teams, recorded 2 draws and 8 losses in 10 matches.
Yeom Ki-hoon’s name was included in the starting list announced by Suwon about an hour before the game. It was an unprecedented feat. This is because he was the first starter in the league this year. At the press conference before the match, Acting Head Coach Seong-yong Choi said, “Ki-hoon has never taken a break since winter training. At the beginning of the season, he didn’t give him a chance because he thought he needed energy. I hope you will receive a good influence from us,” he explained the reason.
But the results were not good. Yeom Ki-hoon was substituted out after digesting until the 29th minute of the second half without showing much in terms of performance.
Yeom Ki-hoon, who met in the joint coverage area (Mixed Zone) after the game, confessed, “Honestly, I thought last year would be the hardest.” Last season, Suwon managed to survive after a relegation PO for the first time in the club’s history. Yeom Ki-hoon said, “There is a more difficult part than last year. The juniors who play the game more than me will have a harder time. I talk to them to give them strength, but it is not easy. You have to win the first time to change the atmosphere. It would have been better if it was today. It’s hard not to,” he said.메이저사이트
He also expressed his apologies to his fans. Yeom Ki-hun said, “I have nothing to say even if I have ten mouths. I’m sorry. Anger is natural. Players have to overcome it. It’s true that we shrink when we see the criticism. When we see fans who are angry even before the start, we shrink. We have to overcome it.” .The fans will come back then. One win is more important than anything else,” he emphasized.
Yeom Ki-hoon continued, “Honestly, I didn’t expect to come to the stadium today. As soon as I came out of the locker room and entered the stadium, I was surprised. It was because there were more people than I expected. That gave me strength. If the cheers of the fans grow, we can play more. Come to the stadium and I want you to be scolded,” he added.
