Pohang Steelers coach Kim Ki-dong, who won three consecutive victories over Jeonbuk, said, “I was good at digging into the opponent’s weaknesses.”

With this victory, Pohang added 3 points to maintain second place (11 wins, 9 draws, 4 losses, 42 points), and also kept the gap with leader Ulsan (18 wins, 2 draws, 4 losses, 56 points).
At the post-game press conference, coach Kim said, “One game is a very important point. I am happy to see a victory over a strong team called Jeonbuk in front of many fans. I ordered the players to squeeze because there was a break, but it was nice to see them show their fighting spirit and persevere until the end. We scored a lot of goals in the second half and were strong.
As mentioned before the game, Pohang won all three coaches of Jeonbuk.
Regarding the reason why he was so strong against Jeonbuk, coach Kim said, “I will do various analyzes while preparing for the Jeonbuk match, but what I was worried about was that the opponent has one shot in the offensive line and there are many players with power.
When asked how he tried to catch it well when the initiative passed to Jeonbuk, coach Kim said, “The first half went well and the flow was good, but we waited for our replacement timing. We tried putting in Kim Jun-ho and Kim In-seong. Han Chan-hee was struggling in the second half and couldn’t get a good position between Baek Seung-ho and Park Jin-seop. said
At the same time, he said, “It was worth waiting for. I wanted to change the second half to the middle of the second half, but I think waiting worked.”
Regarding Lee Ho-jae’s growth, he laughed, “Didn’t you say you were scolded?” He said, “I jokingly asked if I had lost my original intention, but he said he would work hard. I want to do well only if I get scolded. Still, when the good news was important from the first round, I gained confidence by scoring goals and bringing victory points. I think I wanted to show that my playing time increased and improved as time passed. So I ordered simple movements. That was good.”
When asked if he wasn’t relieved because of the two-game difference while catching Jeonbuk, coach Kim said, “It’s a break, so I think I’ll prepare for the next game. In fact, I can’t concentrate on one game and feel complacent in the process of preparing. It’s hard to raise the mood. 바카라사이트
He said, “First of all, I plan to give the players a break as I start the break, and I plan to start training again from the 25th. It’s raining a lot, but I’m thinking of spending time with my family at home rather than going somewhere to play.”
