 ‘Containment?’ Director Nam Gi-il, “Everyone has a difficult face, but only director Cho Seong-hwan…”

 Jeju United coach Ki-il Nam was keeping an eye on Incheon United coach Cho Sung-hwan.

‘Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023’ Opening Media Day was held at The-K Hotel in Yangjae-dong, Seoul at 1:00 pm on the 20th. While the event was hosted by caster So Joon-il, 12 teams participating in this season’s K-League 1 shone.

Managers and players of Gwangju FC, Daejeon Hana Citizen, who will play in the K League 1 this season, as well as Ulsan Hyundai, Jeonbuk Hyundai, Pohang Steelers, Incheon United, Jeju United, Gangwon FC, Suwon FC, Daegu FC, FC Seoul, and Suwon Samsung. They expressed their determination.

The battle for fourth place last season was between Incheon and Jeju. As each round passed, the rankings fluctuated, adding to the tension. The team that finally laughed was Incheon. With 54 points, they took 4th place, 2 points ahead of Jeju (52 points), and secured the right to advance to the AFC Champions League.

Director Ki-il Nam must have been very disappointed. When asked to choose the 2023 season’s ‘Quarterfinals’, Jeonbuk, Ulsan, and Jeju were selected in turn. After that, he carefully discussed the next team. Coach Nam Ki-il said, “It’s Incheon. We’ve recruited so many players. Looking at the faces of the coaches here, most of them are struggling. Incheon wasn’t the only one. Manager Cho Seong-hwan’s hairstyle has changed, and his face looks very good. Comfortable. I think he did it,” he said with a humorous evaluation. 스포츠토토

On this day, director Cho Seong-hwan was full of sophistication with a neat suit and a sharp parting. He even went to the barber shop he visits on special days and gave a soft impression. Director Ki-il Nam did not miss this and dug into it.

Managers of other clubs also evaluated Jeju and Incheon as ‘four-final power’. Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo, Jeonbuk coach Kim Sang-sik, Pohang coach Kim Ki-dong, Gangwon coach Choi Yong-soo, and Suwon FC coach Kim Do-gyun all mentioned Jeju and Incheon at the same time.

Jeju and Incheon warmly spent the winter transfer market. First, Jeju recruited Yuri, Hayes, Yeon Je-woon, Kim Seung-seop, Lee Gi-hyeok, Kim Hyung-geun, Kim Geun-bae, Jeon Seong-jin, and Lim Chae-min, while Incheon recruited Shin Jin-ho, Jerso, Mpoku, Cheon Seong-hun, Kwon Jin-jin, and Kim Yeon-su. I came to form a more upgraded power than last season.

In the 2023 season, Jeju and Incheon’s TOP4 competition is expected to be even hotter.
