“If the injured players return, I think we will be able to utilize our offense in different ways.”
Daegu FC drew 2-2 with Suwon FC in the 33rd round of the Hana OneQ K League 2023 at DGB Daegu Bank Park on Aug. 8. With 49 points, Daegu enters the final round in fifth place.
After the game, Choi said, “We went into the game with a proud heart because we secured Final A and welcomed our home fans. However, I’m sorry that we didn’t win. The players had a lot of injuries and were tired, but they didn’t give up. Finishing the game without losing will give us strength for the remaining matches. I would like to thank them for their hard work.”
Ko Jae-hyun has found the back of the net for two games in a row. After being left out of the final roster for the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games, Choi had a tough time psychologically, but he is gradually bouncing back. “I don’t want to think about it (the Asian Games gold medal), but I think it helped me,” Choi said. I’m proud to be here (in Daegu) when my teammates are playing well. I was worried because I didn’t score many goals this year, but I’m glad I did.”
Beltola also scored his debut goal in the K League. It took him just six games to find the back of the net after signing for Daegu in the summer transfer window. “It was an unexpected right foot,” Choi said. If it was his left foot, it would have been blocked,” Choi laughed, adding, “He is a very sincere friend. He must have been very upset about the sending off. He joined the team late in the summer, so he didn’t play much, but he can be a key resource.”
Having clinched Final A in the previous match, Daegu will now enter the final round. “I think we proved our competitiveness,” said Choi. We showed the strength to get back up even when we were missing our main players. If Sejingya-Vassellus comes back from injury, we can have a sharp offense. Final A teams have good offense. The first thing is to 먹튀검증 be solid. The second thing is that if the injured players come back, we will be able to show our offense in various ways.”
Daegu recorded its eighth sellout of the season. Choi said, “I can’t express my gratitude with words. Are there any more words?” “As much as I’m grateful, my shoulders are heavy. We have to prepare well. In the Final A, we will prepare thoroughly so that the fans can go home happy.”
