Meeting with reporters before the game, coach Choi said, “Ulsan will do like Ulsan. It is Ulsan soccer that you can not stop even if you know. We don’t have many cards to play. I think the weather will be the biggest variable. Except for Beltolan, it is positive that there are no injured players. I think the players will run with pride,” he said.
Coach Choi also went to the Team K League as an assistant to coach Hong. Director Choi said, “It was very uncomfortable. The staff were all from Ulsan,” he laughed, “Director Hong gave me advice as a director. I learned a lot about why Ulsan can win. I tried to get as much as I could get. Still, winning is hard. I know very well that you are a cold-hearted person. position of the challenger. I hope I can smile today,” he repeatedly emphasized.
On the YouTube channel of the Professional Football Federation, there was a scene in which coaches Hong and Choi discussed a player replacement during a team K-League game. Manager Choi did not give a definite answer to coach Hong’s proposal to replace Young-woo Seol, and Young-woo Seol was the only player in the team to play full-time. Coach Choi said, “It was meaningless because there was a lot of time left until the league, and he saw how much the coach wanted to win. In my judgment, Youngwoo did the best. He struggled because he didn’t have Timo,” he said. “The meetings lasted two hours. It took so long to meet at the All-Star game. He made his point clear as a coach. He had no other interests at all. He genuinely wanted to win,” he laughs.
Daegu only scored 4 goals in 5 games in July. There are 2 scoring matches. Coach Choi said, “I hated the players for the first time in several years because of the lack of scoring recently. His scoring ability was poor in July,” he said. On this day, Lee Jong-hoon, a rookie born in 2002, will start for the first time in place of Ko Jae-hyun, who cannot play due to accumulated warnings.
Director Choi said, “I looked like I deserved a chance. Because Edgar is old, he cannot be removed in the second half. He rotates in the first half and tries to give young players a chance. (Lee Jong-hoon) is a sincere friend, from Daegu youth, and has skills. In the beginning, he plans to put pressure on the defense by aiming for space behind the defense through speed. I hope it lasts as long as 45 minutes.”
However, midfielder Beltolan, who was brought in from the summer transfer market, was not on the list that day. Director Choi said, “I was on vacation when I came to Korea. After that, he was slow to raise himself. As the rehabilitation trainer said, positively digest training. From next week, he will start training for the team,” he said. It will take some time for him to participate if he saves himself because he is on loan. To have a headache. There is a shortage of midfielders. (The late) Jae-hyeon was used as a midfielder, but I couldn’t enjoy it much.”
