10th place in salary → 1st place in grades… ‘Kim Ki-dong-ho’ Pohang, ‘two consecutive wins’ with a reason

The Pohang Steelers are once again bringing the wind to the K-League following last season.

Pohang won a 2-1 victory in the Hanawon Q K League 1 2023 2nd round away match against Suwon FC held at Suwon Sports Complex on the 4th.

Pohang took the lead in the 19th minute with Go Young-Jun’s opening goal, but in the 32nd minute, Jeong Jae-Hee’s additional goal took the lead. In the 2nd minute of the second half, Suwon striker Murillo scored a comeback goal, but the score was not equalized and the team scored 3 points.

Pohang, which had a thrilling 3-2 come-from-behind victory in the K-League 1 opening game against Daegu FC on the 26th of last month, also won the away game in Suwon and ran for two consecutive victories.

In K-League 1, if the number of points is the same, the ranking is based on the number of points. Pohang recorded two consecutive victories with Seoul and Ulsan, but became the first with five goals in the most points.

Pohang had a successful season last year, finishing the 2022 season in third place in the league. However, after the season, it received more attention as the ranking of the total annual salary of the K-League 1 teams in the 2022 season was released. 토토사이트

According to data released by the Korea Professional Football Federation, Pohang’s total annual salary expenditure last year was 7,737,277,000 won, and excluding the military team Kim Cheon, it was ranked 10th, second from behind among 11 K-League 1 teams.

The average annual salary per player was 272.49 million won, ranking ninth, and the average foreign player salary was only 666 million won, falling short of the average annual salary of non-K League 1 players (862.685 million won).

Compared to last year’s champion Ulsan Hyundai’s total annual salary of about 17.7 billion won and runner-up Jeonbuk Hyundai spending more than 19.7 billion won, the amount spent is less than half, but Pohang took third place in the league and even secured a ticket to the Asian Champions League (ACL). .

In addition to this, Pohang suffered from measles, which unavoidably led to a reorganization of the squad ahead of this season.

Captain Shin Jin-ho, who scored 4 goals and 10 assists last season and was nominated for K-League 1 MVP, transferred to Incheon United. In addition, one player who was supposed to be recruited could not sign a contract due to personal circumstances.
