Suwon FC head coach Kim Do-gyun (46) is determined to put his life on the line in every remaining match.
Suwon FC lost 0-1 to Gwangju FC in the 24th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 at 7 p.m. on Feb. 22 at Suwon Sports Complex. This is Suwon’s third loss in three matches against Gwangju this season. Gwangju’s Doo Hyun-seok scored a fantastic volley in the 43rd minute of the match.
With the loss, Suwon FC went winless in eight matches and remained in 10th place with 20 points (D5, W5, L14). They are now just two points behind 11th-place Suwon Samsung (18).
After the game, head coach Kim Do-gyun said, “We lost without winning at home. I feel very sorry for the fans. The players feel the same way. The players played their best in the game. I was very disappointed that we conceded in the first half. We wanted to create chances for ourselves in the second half without conceding, but it was difficult. It took a lot of players to create chances, and we had a lot of shots. But the finishing was a little disappointing. We played well in the second half, but in the end we lost, so I apologize to our fans.”
The 10th spot is now in jeopardy. The upcoming two-week break is more important than ever. “It’s true that we’ve been going through a very difficult period for a long time,” said Kim Do-gyun. Not only me, but all the members are working very hard to overcome it. We have two weeks to find out how we can improve and work harder to create an opportunity to turn things around.”
Bautersson, who came on as a second-half substitute, looked sharp. “Physically, we are lacking in some areas. He’s still not at 100 percent, but I think he showed his strengths today. I’m looking forward to the future. We have two weeks to improve our fitness, so I believe we will have a good attacking option.”
Lopez, who was substituted in the 10th minute of the first half, came on again in the second half. “It wasn’t very good in terms of movement, ball touch, ball management. I’m not sure. I don’t know if he had a fitness problem or if his movements weren’t sharp enough. I felt that his physical strength had dropped, so I substituted him.”
Kim added, “It’s a very difficult situation. The players are working hard. They are trying to win. We conceded goals, we didn’t score goals, and as a result, we are a little bit lacking. I think we need to improve our concentration. We will focus on the upcoming game rather than regretting the game that ended.” Kim added.
Suwon FC will now play the ‘Suwon Derby’ against Suwon Samsung, the team that escaped the bottom of the table, on the 5th of next month. Coach Kim Do-gyun said, “I can see Suwon’s performance improving after the summer transfer market. They are also getting results. The Suwon derby is really important. Every game can be a relegation game now. We have to take each game as it comes,” he said. 바카라사이트
