“We need to be more calm and have more detailed play as we need to get a result now.”
Yoon Jeong-hwan, head coach of Gangwon FC, said this to reporters at the official press conference immediately after the team’s 1-1 home draw against Pohang Steelers in the 28th round of the Hana One Q K League 2023 at Gangneung Sports Complex at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
On the day, Gangwon fell behind in the 16th minute when they conceded a goal to Hong Yun-sang. However, they fought back and equalized shortly afterward. Alibayev’s wonder goal in the 33rd minute of the first half kept the balance tense. However, they were unable to pull off the upset and had to settle for a point.
With the draw, Gangwon failed to win for the second game in a row (1-1) and fell back into a winless streak. The team remained in 12th place on the table (3 wins, 12 draws, 13 losses – 21 points) and failed to ‘break through’. Gangwon will travel to Daegu FC on the first of next month to try and break out of the winless streak.
In the post-match press conference, Yoon said, “We changed our system at the beginning of the first half, and I could see that Pohang was getting overwhelmed. We conceded a goal and struggled, but we quickly made a substitution and returned to our original system. Alibayev then equalized with a good mid-range shot.” “It was a back-and-forth game. “We got in front of their goal, but our players were indecisive in front of it, and we didn’t have any combination play. I don’t think we had enough time,” he concluded.
메이저사이트 “I want to thank the players for their hard work until the end, but now we need to get a result. We need to play more calmly and with more details. “I’m disappointed that we didn’t win, but we’ll take the points we got today. We’ve got a lot of games coming up and we’re going into them with a lot of nerves.”
Alibayev came on as a substitute and rattled the net with a fantastic mid-range shot. “It was my first time playing in that position,” said Yoon. It was a good shot at a good time. I think it was my will that made it happen,” he said.
On this day, Yoon was often seen getting angry with his players in the technical area. “I wasn’t angry,” he said, “but the players showed a lot of lack of focus on the opponent’s pressure. It was a situation where I had to talk to them quickly, so my voice became louder in that regard.” “Even if I talked to them from the bench with a raised voice, it didn’t get through to the players,” he explained.
