Who would want to buy taiyaki to feed? Directors gave witty answers.
Commanders of 13 K League 2 teams and players representing the clubs gathered at The-K Hotel in Yangjae-dong, Seocho-gu, Seoul at 2:00 pm on the 21st to attend the 2023 K League 2 Media Day.
After the full-fledged event started, each team coach was asked the first question, “Which of our team players would you like to buy delicious Taiyaki?”
Chungnam Asan coach Park Dong-hyuk said, “Suddenly, I thought of several players. I won’t mention them because I think other coaches will take them away if I mention them. I seem to keep falling in. I want to make him a player who wants to keep an eye on and take him by talking about this and that while eating Taiyaki.”
Cheonan City coach Park Nam-yeol chose Mota, a striker from Brazil. He continued, “I want to buy a lot for striker Motta. He wants to give the team and us a gift of sweetness,” he explained the reason.
Gyeongnam coach Seol Gi-hyeon replied, “Thiago left and Glayson came in. I want to buy Glayson to eat a lot and score a lot.”
Jeonnam Minister Lee said, “Japanese player Hei Ryu doesn’t eat well because he has a short mouth. I want to give him strength by feeding him Taiyaki. He doesn’t eat Korean food well. I want to buy him a lot of meat.”
Coach Kim Chun Sangmu and Seong Han-soo said, “I want to buy new player Kim Hyeon-wook. He has a small physique and can run a lot. Seeing him competing with players taller than 180cm, I want to buy him something.”
Anyang coach Lee Woo-hyung said, “I want to buy second-year striker Park Jae-yong. He is the player who has improved the most through training this winter. During that time, he has grown enough to erase our team’s main striker Jonathan. We can achieve it,” he said, looking forward to Park Ji-woong’s performance.
Gimpo coach Go Jeong-woon chose Uruguayan midfielder Pablo. Director Ko said, “If you do InBody, you will lose weight. I use my strong physical strength to attack and defend hard. Taiyaki is a carbohydrate, so I can grow my body.”
Busan coach Park Jin-seop chose Lee Han-do, who was with the captain. 스포츠토토 Director Park replied, “I want to buy Lee Han-do. He seems to be stressed while playing the role of captain. It would be nice to relieve some stress while eating sweet taiyaki.” In response, Lee Han-do added, “I like Taiyaki. I eat it from the head.”
E-Land coach Park Choong-kyun also chose Han Yong-soo, who sat next to him. Coach Park joked, “If I pick just one person to talk about, I think it will have a big impact on the team. If I had to pick one person, it would be Han Yong-soo next to me. I’ve been in a coma for 18 weeks due to a muscle injury last October.” Later, he said, “I want to heal my injuries by feeding them even beef.”
In response, Han Yong-soo explained, “I don’t eat because I want to manage my body fat. If the director gives it to me, I’ll eat it. I give my wife and children, and I eat the remaining parts at the end.”
