It is ‘Jeonju Castle’, but it was not like Jeonju Castle. Naturally, the players were not excited, and the result was defeat. Extreme confrontation with fans, Jeonbuk Hyundai is standing on the edge of a cliff.
Jeonbuk lost 1-2 in the 5th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ against Pohang Steelers held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 1st. Jeonbuk, who suffered a 0-2 shock loss to Daegu FC in the previous round, was cornered by losing even against Pohang, which came out after hitting Bae Su-jin after the A-match break. Only 1 win (1 draw and 3 losses) in 5 games, Jeonbuk’s current address.
A difficult game was expected even before kickoff. Fans turned their heads at the continued slump. Official supporters MGB launched an unprecedented boycott of cheering. The place where ‘Orele’ should have been resounding was full of placards and shouts criticizing director Kim Sang-sik and CEO Heo Byung-gil. To make matters worse, even the players were not 100%. The aftermath of the match A was great. Kim Jin-soo, Baek Seung-ho, and Cho Kyu-seong, who were selected for the A national team, all failed to play. Kim Jin-soo injured his lumbar spine, Baek Seung-ho injured his hamstring, and Cho Kyu-seong injured his calf. Amano Jun, Park Jin-seop, and Lee Dong-jun returned, but changes were inevitable. 메이저사이트
Jeonbuk, which started an all-out war, repeated the same problem that day. He showed good performance in the first half, but showed lethargy in the second half. Jeonbuk took the lead with a lucky goal in the 16th minute when Ryu Jae-moon’s shot deflected after receiving a pass from Song Min-gyu. Even with the home team scoring, the stadium was quiet. The first half of the game wasn’t bad. The pressure intensity was good, and I created opportunities. We pushed Pohang from start to finish, but it was regrettable that Hafa Silva’s decisive shot was canceled in the chance for an additional goal.
But in the second half, another picture unfolded. When Pohang coach Kim Ki-dong changed the flow with various changes, Jeonbuk was shaken as well. In the 12th minute of the second half, Baek Seong-dong scored the equalizer. Jeonbuk, which failed to respond properly, led to a difficult game. The bad luck overlapped. Park Jin-seop collided with the Pohang goalkeeper and collapsed. Jeonbuk, which had already made three substitutions earlier, could no longer change players even though they had one replacement card left. Jeonbuk, who faced Pohang with one player missing, eventually got the winning goal from Jeka in extra time in the second half. The result was a shocking come-from-behind defeat.
After the game, coach Kim lowered his head, saying, “3 losses out of 5 games is an unacceptable result for Jeonbuk. Fans blocked the squad’s bus from leaving the stadium. An impromptu situation ensued. Even the police came. The situation was settled only after Director Kim stood in front of the fans. But the fire is still there. Fans continue to rage.
The reason why Jeonbuk is in the worst crisis right now is that fans have doubts about the team, not expectations. Considering Jeonbuk’s power and potential, they can hit and run once they change the flow. It is important to unravel the twisted thread. However, now that the fans have turned their backs, it is not easy to rebound. Director Kim Ki-dong also said, “It was comfortable because there was no support from Jeonbuk fans.” It seems far away to turn the hearts of fans now. The cheering boycott is expected to continue for the time being. Both the players and the front seem to be in a deep pit. Immediately, the next game (9th) will be held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium. The opponent is Incheon United. Indeed, ‘Spring’ in Jeonjuseong
