“I’m sorry for the players and sorry for the fans”.
Gimpo FC lost 1-2 against Chungbuk Cheongju in the 16th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at Gimpo Solter Stadium on the 4th.
“We haven’t won at home lately, but the players did their best,” said Gimpo head coach Kim Jung-woon after the game. However, the coach was the problem.” “We have been playing differently in the last two games. I apologize to the players and I apologize to the fans.”
Goh continued, “They played with their feet down in the first half. We didn’t solve their pressing against our three-back defense properly. We prepared for the game with a Plan B, but it didn’t show on the pitch, and we conceded too easily. We need to work on our tactics in more detail. It’s not the players’ responsibility, but their conditioning and physicality. I’m disappointed with my own mistakes.”
Regarding the situation where they played more in the second half and fought harder, Choi Jung-woon said, “We couldn’t catch Jang Hyuk-jin and Peter of Chungbuk Cheongju perfectly. Our defense was shaky, which caused us difficulties. However, in the second half, we had a chance to catch up by deploying a three-top and changing to a four-back.” 메이저놀이터
“We are conceding goals because of our mistakes rather than because they played well,” said Choi Jung-woon. It’s difficult for the players because of the physical burden, but we need to prepare well. I think I overlooked something as a coach. I don’t want to blame the players for the defeat. We need to fix it through repeated training.”
Speaking about their next opponent, Busan, Ko said, “We just need to work on the areas where we conceded goals. It’s not a situation where we can perfect the rotation. I will think about it a lot and prepare with the players,” he emphasized.
