“A solo system? The hurdle will come, you have to predict and prepare for it.”
Hong Myung-bo, coach of Ulsan Hyundai, who won the 1st and 2nd place war with FC Seoul, regarded carelessness as the greatest enemy.
Coach Hong secured 34 points with a 3-2 win in the home game against Seoul in the 13th round of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ held at Ulsan Munsu Stadium on the 14th, widening the gap with 2nd place Seoul (23 points) to 11 points.
After Martin Adam’s opening goal in the first half, Ulsan allowed Seoul Kim Shin-jin to equalize in the first minute of the second half, but Bakko scored multiple goals to lead the victory. Park Su-il allowed a chase goal at the end of the second half, but kept the lead by one goal.
Coach Hong said, “It is true that we do not have many crosses. In the meantime, Seol Young-woo (right-footed) stood on the left, so if he crosses (scoring), the chances of scoring dropped, so he played inside, but today (left-footed) Lee Myung-jae was there. Keeping such a cross coming up can put a burden on the opponent’s defense. The scoring scene was good, but before that, I prepared for Lee Myung-jae to fall in (behind the defense), and it’s good that he showed up well.”
Regarding the evaluation that he was “loose at the end of the second half,” he said, “There have been a few recent times when I played complacently in a winning situation and changed the flow of the opponent. However, I don’t know if I made a mistake in my solo play today, but I was loose overall. I think the second half played better than the first half.”
Ulsan is leading the uptrend with Bakko’s recent goal storm. Also, Adam, who started instead of Joo Min-gyu, made a field goal using his foot for the first time since joining Ulsan. Coach Hong said, “Of course, our team’s competitive structure is that when a player plays, he has to be on the bench. It’s a reality. There is also a sense of crisis that if you do not go out at the given time and do your best, you can always sit on the bench for the next game.” “There is also a sense of competition among the players. However, if the competition is too fierce, jealousy may arise, but we have positive things to celebrate and harmonize with each other.” 먹튀검증
Coach Hong, who has won 5 consecutive wins, said, “I think I can go a little further when asked about the ‘solo system’. The important thing is that there are many more matches to come. It is clear that the gobi will come to us. The best way is to predict and prepare.”
