“I hope a coach who plays sticky soccer that doesn’t lose will come.”
Jeonbuk Hyundai defender Choi Chul-soon (36) is a veteran who has gone through all sorts of battles. The ‘dynasty’ that Jeonbuk walked along with. But now Jeonbuk is different. He has already suffered 6 losses (3 wins, 2 draws) in 10 matches. On the 4th, coach Kim Sang-shik decided to resign voluntarily. Choi Cheol-soon played full-time as a right-sided defender in the match against FC Seoul in the 11th round of the ‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 5th. In the 10th round against Gangwon FC, he filled the vacancy of Moon-Han Kim, who was absent after being sent off.
After the game, Choi Chul-soon calmly looked at the reality. He said, “I don’t seek to win, but I have to think about what kind of football I will give my fans a message in the future. “We have to play football where winning comes along,” he said. It’s a pity that football like that hasn’t come out yet. Players need to be motivated. We have to work hard to continue playing football that belongs to Jeonbuk,” he said calmly.
Regarding Jeonbuk’s sluggish performance, he said that the players were largely responsible. Choi Cheol-soon said, “Isn’t it because the players couldn’t gather in one place?” “Jeonbuk is a team that always competes. Even as a senior, I should have shown exemplary behavior, but that part is also regrettable. You have to work hard to set an example for the team and be recognized.” You can’t be number 1 in your life. He urged the players to wake up, saying, “We have to quickly accept our current position and prepare by repairing the mental part first.” 메이저놀이터
Jeonbuk had its own style of ‘shut up and attack’ (dak-gong). Recently, the color has faded. Choi Chul-soon said, “‘Dak-gong’ is good. However, to win the game, the defense must be as stable as possible. That way, the attackers can score goals without feeling the pressure,” he said. I think I will have to work hard to score more goals in the future. We have to show a performance that can satisfy the fans,” he emphasized.
Jeonbuk is looking for a new coach. Foreign directors are also included. Choi Cheol-soon said, “I hope that a new coach will come who can play sticky, unbeaten soccer that we can win. Also, I think I have to play soccer according to what the coach wants and pursues.”
On this day, Jeonbuk fans filled the away cheering seats. They sang a cheering song, and when a goal was scored, they also shouted ‘Orele’. Choi Chul-soon said, “It was difficult to experience (not cheering). Listening to the cheering song gave me strength. I think we have to work hard so that the fans can continue to support us.”
