Jeonbuk Hyundai is making efforts in various ways to become the best club in Asia.
Jeonbuk, which has been steadily exchanging with excellent foreign clubs using the parent company, has established a new position, Technical Advisor (hereinafter referred to as technical advisor). 스포츠토토
On the 4th of last month, Jeonbuk appointed former manager Roberto Di Matteo to the position. Above all, he was appointed midway through the 2011/12 season as acting manager of Chelsea in the Premier League, and he is a person who leads the UEFA Champions League championship. He resembles the makeup that comedian Park Myung-soo did in the past, and is famous in Korea as ‘Boy Myung-soo’.
Of course, after his career at Chelsea, his career at Aston Villa and Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga was disappointing, but Jeonbuk felt a great charm in that Di Matteo was able to transplant his experience of continuing his leadership career in Europe to Jeonbuk, and he had a good relationship with technical director Ji-Sung Park. Recruitment was successful after rapport.
Di Mateo, technical advisor, said, “It is an honor to be able to join the best club in Asia,” and “I want to help coach Kim Sang-sik and the coaching staff to win many trophies for Jeonbuk fans.”
Di Mateo, Technical Advisor, started his career as a part-time employee. He plans to communicate with Jeonbuk coaching staff, including coach Kim Sang-sik, to deliver his know-how and European soccer trends, and to discuss technical aspects such as tactics and training programs.
The beginning was Jeonbuk’s field training in Spain in early February. Technical advisor Di Matteo had his first meeting with coach Ji-Sung Park and coach Sang-Sik Kim and other coaching staff in Spain.
What kind of conversation did director Kim Sang-sik have with Di Mateo, technical advisor who spent his coaching career in Europe?
In an interview before the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Opening Media Day held at The-K Hotel in Yangjae on the 20th, when asked about how the two shared, coach Kim said, “I talked while watching Di Matteo watch two games for a week and train together. We shared a lot,” he said. “DiMatteo also said, ‘There is no correct answer in football.’ He said it would help.”
He added, “At the same time, there were many parts that I could sympathize with. I didn’t say much tactically, but there was a point that gave details about the players’ posture and positioning.”
Fixing a player’s position or posture is mostly at the youth level, but it doesn’t happen often at the professional level.
However, watching Di Mateo, technical advisor, pay attention to details, Director Kim felt a different feeling.
Manager Kim said, “It’s a fact that we all know, but if we say it to the players, it’s like nagging. It’s something we’ve always taught.” He took care of me one by one with this tone. Watching it, I thought, ‘Sometimes I have to teach the players, didn’t I overlook the fact that even elementary school students know?'”
On the other hand, coach Kim said about the results of the training camp in Spain, “There are a lot of new players, so I think they competed fiercely with the existing players on the field.” It was a field training period where I studied.”
