Jeonbuk Hyundai has taken a step closer to becoming a complete team. The ‘World Cup Hero’ is finally back.
Striker Cho Kyu-seong (25), who was called up to the national team during the A match in March, injured his thigh muscle and left the line for a while스포츠토토, and Jeonbuk fell sharply in the ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023’ in the absence of a key goalkeeper.
Cho Kyu-seong only scored 1 goal in 4 games after the season started, but his contribution cannot be evaluated only with attack points. Having gained world fame by scoring two goals in last year’s World Cup in Qatar, he puts a heavy burden on the opponent’s defense when he moves. You can get many opportunities around you.
While Cho Kyu-seong was gone, there were many changes in Jeonbuk. After repeated battles, coach Kim Sang-sik put down the baton. Head coach Kim Doo-hyun took over as acting coach and took a breather by recording three consecutive games undefeated (1 win, 2 draws), but it is still an ’emergency situation’.
Fortunately, with the return of Cho Kyu-sung, Jeonbuk’s attacking options increased. While relieving the burden of Gustavo and Happa Silva, who were in charge of the front, it was possible to provide another chance to Andre Luiz, who was disappointed with his lower-than-expected play.
Cho Kyu-seong will play in the 14th round of the K-League 1 against Suwon FC at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 21st. Initially, the 13th round away game (0-0 draw) against Incheon United was set as the point of return, but Acting Kim made the decision to “recover completely and play in the optimal environment.”
There is another good news. National team right fullback Kim Moon-hwan (28) is also ready to play. While he was out due to a penalty for sending off and a minor injury, Jeonbuk had to come up with an irregular strategy of turning the central midfielder (Maeng Seong-woong) and center back (Koo Ja-ryong) to the side.
In addition, ‘multipurpose striker’ Song Min-gyu (24), who is in the final stage of recovery, can also be used from the FA Cup match on the 24th at the latest. However, it will take more time for Amano Jun (32) and Maeng Seong-woong (25) to return.
Jeonbuk is about to promote a stable and reliable rebound by strengthening the team more thoroughly without rushing as the operation of normal power has already been delayed.
