“It’s the whole team in the moments leading up to the goal. The players have not been showing responsibility and cohesion lately. Their individual abilities are good, but they don’t work as a team.”
Ulsan Hyundai head coach Hong Myung-bo has some stinging advice for his players.
Ulsan lost 0-2 to Gwangju in the 29th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at the Ulsan Munsu Football Stadium at 4:30 p.m. on March 3. Despite rebounding with a win over rivals Jeonbuk Hyundai, the team hasn’t won in two matches, losing at FC Seoul (2-2 draw) and at home to Gwangju FC.
“We lost against Gwangju,” said Hong Myung-bo. The most regrettable part of the loss was conceding the first goal. It’s a problem with the whole team right before the goal. We haven’t shown responsibility and cohesion lately. We have good individual abilities, but we are not moving as a team.”
“Last year, we won the title because we were committed to the team. I don’t see that at all now. The players are doing their best, but it feels like something is missing. Before the goal, we were fine, but after the goal, we got busy and urgent. 바카라사이트 We need to figure out where the problem is. We need to prepare well for this break.”
On what he said to his players at halftime, Hong said, “We made some changes in the first half. I told them not to be in a hurry because we have another 45 minutes,” he said, adding, “In the past, we used to play well in the half-space, but lately we’ve been slipping a bit. The first movement is working, but the second and third movements are not smooth.”
As for Seol’s injury, he said, “I don’t think there’s any problem. We’ll have to check him today. I don’t think it’s a big injury.”
