Suwon FC coach Kim Do-gyun ahead of the ‘Suwon Derby’ was ‘change’.
Suwon FC did not win in 8 matches until the ‘Suwon Derby’. With 2 draws and 6 losses, they fell into the relegation zone. Suwon Samsung and Gangwon FC came up against each other, and in the soccer world, there was even talk that ‘Suwon FC could go down to the bottom’. Director Kim also felt a sense of crisis. The All-Star break was the last chance. Director Kim made a major change.
He first changed his argument. The captain’s armband worn by Yun Bit-garam was given to Lee Young-jae. The vice-captain was also changed to Jeong Dong-ho and Shinsegae. Coach Kim found a new captain by accepting the will of Yoon Bit-garam, who had difficulties in carrying out the captaincy. He picked Lee Young-jae to bridge the gap between seniors and newcomers. Lee Young-jae also said at first that it was burdensome because he had many older brothers, but after coach Kim’s persuasion, he put on the captain’s armband.
Coaches have also been strengthened. Coach Lee Jung-soo, who had been with him until last season, was reinstated. Coach Lee received good reviews as the head coach. He did a good job bridging the team. It was this coach who was in charge of the defense organization. As the number of runs increased, the coaching staff’s need for defensive experts grew, and the problem was solved with the comeback of coach Lee, who knows the team well.
Tactics also worked. Director Kim has an autonomous style. He devises tactics so that players can run and play to their heart’s content. The advantage of the players was maximized with the flexible mercenary technique of going back and forth between one-top and two-top, three-back and four-back. Lee Seung-woo, Lars, Murillo, and Lee Kwang-hyeok were the biggest driving force behind Suwon FC’s revival. It worked well until last season. Suwon FC achieved promotion and Final A in the clear color of attack soccer.
However, the movement of the players this season did not come out as expected. Until last season, he made up for the lack of defense with offense, but this season has not been able to do that. The strength of the attacking team was not as good as in previous years, and the number of goals decreased and the number of conceded points increased. Coach Kim changed his tone. He pivoted to more tactically structured football.
A tangible result has emerged. Suwon FC, which suffered a complete 2-7 defeat against FC Seoul, showed improvement little by little defensively by conceding only one goal each in the matches against Jeonbuk Hyundai and Gwangju FC (0-1 loss). During the break, the organization of the four-back was further refined, and the offense was also touched upon. The ‘Lee Seung-woo shift’ was the key. Lee Seung-woo, who usually played as a left wing or shadow striker, was appointed as a central midfielder. Although Yun Bit-garam struggled, Jun Jin-seong tried to change by putting the ‘Lee Seung-woo card’ in midfield, which was somewhat disappointing.
It was successful. Suwon FC, who chose a big change, got a big performance as much as it was. In the Suwon Derby against Suwon Samsung held on the 5th, they won 2-0. As a result of the change of captain, the team was more united as one, and with the addition of this coach, a sense of weight was created on the bench. ‘Lee Seung-woo Shift’ was a hit. Lee Seung-woo played well enough to think that central midfielder would be the most suitable position. He displayed his creativity to the fullest, and also made an impressive performance defensively by tying down the opponent’s key midfielder Kazuki. The unique aggressive color has faded somewhat, but Suwon FC, which has added a new color of stability, won the ‘Suwon Derby’.토토사이트
Director Kim’s winning numbers fit nicely, and Suwon FC set the starting point for a rebound.
However, Lars splashed cold water on him. Lars was charged with drunk driving on the 7th and was investigated. The police were dispatched after receiving a report of “suspected drunk driving” and caught Lars on a road in Sinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul. At the time of detection, the blood alcohol concentration was measured at 0.08% or more, which is equivalent to license revocation. Choi Soon-ho, general manager of Suwon FC, said, “After investigating the situation through the story of the player himself, we will deal with it according to the established manual.” Contract cancellation is likely. In the summer transfer market, after shaking the team with rumors of a transfer to FC Seoul, Lars, who seemed to come back to life by scoring a comeback goal against Suwon, harmed the team by doing something he shouldn’t have done. Director Kim also sighed at the sudden departure of Lars.
