Jeonbuk Hyundai, which has maintained its top spot since winning its first league championship in 2009, is having the worst start of the year. With 3 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses, 11 points, they are in 10th place in the promotion playoffs. On the 4th, former manager Kim Sang-sik resigned, and it is necessary to find a new manager.
It is difficult for the players as well. He had been faithful to his training in Marbella, Spain, but his start was a mess. Since last year, the fans’ cry for resignation accompanied by director Kim Sang-shik and CEO Heo Byung-gil did not stop, and even cheered in silence.
Even if it is a home game, the atmosphere that feels like an away game is a loss to the players. It is not easy to concentrate and play under a banner with criticism in the stands. In order not to create this atmosphere, the secretariat needed coordination and persuasion skills, but as a result, coach Kim left and grades plummeted, returning to failure.
At least, it was meaningful that the fans cheered for the players in the 11th round against FC Seoul held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 5th. Jeonbuk fans’ motivation became more certain as Gustavo’s record-tying goal in the shortest time ever was scored in the 11th second of the first half.
In the 10th round against Gangwon FC, Ang Hyun-jun gave a theater goal just before the end of the game and lost 0-1. First of all, with the acting coach Kim Doo-hyun, the team tied 1-1 and laid the groundwork to build their pride again.
Baek Seung-ho, who was devoted to the role of the link between offense and defense, said, “It is the players who run in the stadium. Coach Sang-sik Kim always thought of the players and fans first. It seems that the team is responsible for not producing results. I wanted to show it,” he said, explaining why he ran with all his might.
Former manager Kim played from Seongnam Ilhwa in 2009, when he was active, until his retirement after moving to Jeonbuk, leaving a record of winning both as a coach and manager. Baek Seung-ho looked back, saying, “I’ve been in Jeonbuk for a long time. I know how much you loved and cared for the club. The result was unfortunately like that. (After conducting the morning training the day before the game), I said goodbye briefly and it seems like it was a sad day.”
This is Baek Seung-ho, who ran with the power of support from the fans. On this day, Jeonbuk fans occupied the first floor of the South spectator stand. Baek Seung-ho said, “If you come a lot, I really get strength. It seems that the players also work as such a force to run more. They always came a lot, but there was a regrettable part because not many came because of this year’s performance. This is the responsibility of the players who run. I think it’s big. I think it’s important to show a better image from now on so that more fans can come.”
Jeonbuk’s game style was ‘shut up and attack (Dak Gong)’ built during former coach Choi Kang-hee, so fans also wanted a hot attack, and this was passed on to former coach Jose Morais and coach Kim. In the process of changing the team, some modifications are necessary according to the leader’s philosophy, but the fans did not accept that kind of composure. 크크크벳
Baek Seung-ho also predicted a gradual change, saying, “It’s such a time when players change a lot and are now in line, so I don’t think it’s urgent. did.
Jeonbuk suffered a lot while coming to the game. Baek Seung-ho said, “I think it’s all about the situation where luck doesn’t follow and results don’t come out.” I think we should do it,” he explained, explaining that the departures of Hong Jeong-ho and Kim Moon-hwan actually served as an opportunity for the team to become more attached.
Baek Seung-ho, who says that he grows up in trials, does not want to forget the present time. He said, “There were so many losses in 11 games. I will try to reduce those losses in the future. Personally, I will win by playing more attack points or games that help the team. I will show improvement.”
