Manager Kim Sang-sik, who faced reporters before the media day of the 2023 season K-League 1 opening held at The-K Hotel in Yangjae-dong, Seoul on the 20th, said, “It is really reassuring that Kyu-seong Cho remains. Directors such as Gustavo and Andre Luis have more options to use. Raphael also thought of a one-stop or two-stop. He laughed, saying, “I can use tactics to suit the opponent.”
After attending the 2022 World Cup in Qatar last year, Cho Kyu-sung promoted his trip to Europe. He talked to Mainz (Germany) and Celtic (Scotland), but eventually chose to stay. He plans to make a summer transfer after playing an active part in Jeonbuk for six months.
Coach Kim Sang-shik said, “After the World Cup, it was very difficult (physically). He showed good form during his battery training, and he has a strong will to do it. He learned while dealing with European stoppers, and he must have felt how to develop to be successful when advancin
Coach Kim Sang-sik, who picked Lee Dong-jun and Song Min-gyu as expected players, shouted ‘Treble’ again this year. He said, “I have never been able to achieve this, but I have to challenge myself with the goal of winning three competitions without stopping. He has to come back for the trophies he missed last year too. He emphasized that it will be a year where he does not lose as much as at home.”
This season, too, it is a will to give weight to the front. Coach Kim Sang-sik said, “This year, I want to raise the line and play soccer that challenges me from the front. A lot of young players have been recruited, so I think we can do enough. Rather than stealing the ball through an opponent’s mistake, we want to take the ball by challenging ourselves.”
From the opening game, they will clash with the ‘opponent’ Ulsan Hyundai. This Hyundai derby is called the ‘Amano derby’ because of the transfer of Jun Amano, who played an active role in Ulsan last year.
Manager Kim Sang-sik said, “There was an unfortunate incident, but players have to show it on the field. He did well in Ulsan, and now he is a Jeonbuk player. I am looking forward to how good he will show in Jeonbuk,” he said. He is not a shrinking player, but I think he will show a good figure.”
