Jeonbuk Hyundai, which is aiming to rise to the top of the K-League 1, accepted the homework of filling the void left by national striker Cho Gyu-seong (25, Mittwillan), who had been sent to the European stage.
Jeonbuk won 1 win and 1 draw in the two matches played without Cho Kyu-sung. The grades weren’t bad, but the content was bad. In the away game against Hana Citizen in Daejeon on the 13th, they were dragged all the way and scored a 2-2 draw with a goal in extra time in the second half.
In particular, the match against Suwon FC looked like it would be easy to solve the game by scoring the opening goal in the 12th minute of the first half, but in the second half, the opponent allowed more shots and played a difficult game. It would have been a game that could have allowed a draw had it not been for the performances of defensive midfielder Nana Boateng, who made her K-League debut that day, and Park Jin-seop, who was selected as a wild card for the Asian Games team.
The main reason for the difficult game was that the frontline resources failed to score a decisive opportunity. Head coach Dan Petrescu sat down with his head covered when striker Gustavo, who started the game against Suwon FC, was unable to score a goal in the 37th minute of the second half because the goalkeeper did not handle it properly.메이저토토사이트
If this goal had been scored, it would have been easy to finish the game and arrange the stamina of the main players, so it seemed to be a big disappointment. At the press conference after the game, manager Petrescu said, “I couldn’t see what kind of play he was trying to play. He was so tired that I wondered if he was mistaking the penalty box to attack,” he said, pointing out his lack of determination. In fact, Gustavo clearly showed signs of exhaustion in the second half, and lacked movement to find an empty space when developing an attack. Gustavo is only scoring 2 points in the league, including the goal that day.
Even for the normal operation of the game, it is necessary to recruit a reliable solver. Midfielder Baek Seung-ho served as a shadow striker under Gustavo in the match. Baek Seung-ho, whom we met in the Mixed Zone after the game, said, “I think I made a mistake because I was just trying to jump forward,” and revealed that his performance was not satisfactory. Regarding the point that Cho Kyu-sung’s lack of destructive power in the front line is lacking, he said, “It’s unfortunate, but I think it’s important for the remaining players to fill the void as much as possible so they don’t miss it.”
In addition to Gustavo, Jeonbuk has a frontline resource called Hafa Silva, but their goal-making ability is poor. He has only scored 3 points this season. It is urgent to reinforce high-quality strikers, but with the recent recruitment of Boateng, all foreign quotas have been exhausted except for Southeast Asian players. Manager Petrescu said, “We have requested the club to recruit a Korean striker similar to Kyu-Sung Cho,” and “We are currently monitoring two players and hope to complete the recruitment process within a week.”
