“Lee Yong and Lee Kwang-hyeok are the key players on the team, but (leaving) the damage to the team is great.”
Suwon FC head coach Kim Do-kyun expressed his regret over the departure of key players due to injuries.
Suwon FC meets Jeju United in the 13th round of the Hanawon Q K League 1 2023 at Suwon Sports Complex on the 14th.
The first meeting between the two teams this season was a 0-0 draw. In the last 5 matches, they have 3 draws and 2 losses. There were many times when Jeju couldn’t open the goal.
Coach Kim said, “The match against Jeju was always difficult. They drew in the last expedition, but were pushed back in terms of content. But I think the team situation back then and now is better. I think we should control Ahn Hyun-beom, Lee Chang-min, and Koo Ja-cheol well, but Koo Ja-cheol was missing. I think the result will be different depending on how to control the midfield fight and Ahn Hyun-beom on the right side. I don’t think I’m too far behind in midfield fights. He said, “I think the result will be different depending on how I do in that part.”
Lee Seung-woo has yet to score his first goal of the season. “We create chances, but no goals are being scored. I, the players, and the team shouldn’t be impatient. The player himself is frustrated, but I think he needs to concentrate on the chance. If we keep creating chances, I think we will score goals.”안전놀이터
Lee Kwang-hyeok was excluded from the list for two consecutive matches. Director Kim said, “My adductor muscle was torn. Lee Yong and Lee Kwang-hyeok are the key players in the team, but (leaving) is a big damage to the team. I don’t want the injury to get worse after one or two games, so I’m taking a break from this game and preparing for the next game.”
He meets Lee Ki-hyeok, who was with him until the previous season, as an opponent. Manager Kim said, “I think I sent it because I thought I knew Suwon FC well. We also know Lee Ki-hyeok well. He must be properly controlled. He laughed, saying, “I will have to watch today’s game to see how much his skills have improved after going to Jeju.”
Foreigner Luan was on the substitute list for three consecutive matches. Director Kim said, “(Condition) is not perfect. This is the stage of getting used to the K-League while playing games. It shows a good scene once or twice. I signed a contract because I wanted that. It’s not a long time, but I think he can make an impact for 20 to 30 minutes. It is positive to see such a figure even though it is not in perfect physical condition.”
In-N-Out due to injured players is frequent. Coach Kim said, “There is a difference in skill between players who play and players who don’t. When the main players are missing, the results and performance also make a difference. As a director, I am worried and regretful. The most important thing is to manage injuries well and not let the main players hit. In the summer transfer market, I think we should consider those aspects and reinforce them.”
