Pohang Steelers captain Kim Seung-dae (32) aimed to win the upcoming season.
Kim Seung-dae participated in the press conference of the 2023 K-League Winter Field Training Media Camp held in Jeju on the 6th, revealing his feelings and determination to take over as captain ahead of the new season.
Pohang’Local Boy’ Kim Seung-dae, who returned to his former team ahead of the 2022 season, was given the captain’s armband ahead of the new season.
Kim Seung-dae, who is preparing to welcome the 2023 season with great responsibility, expressed his ambition, saying, “I want to present the championship to coach Kim Ki-dong.”
The following is Kim Seung-dae’s Q&A.
-I am curious about how you felt when you received the captain’s offer from director Kim Ki-dong.
When the coach talked to me (claim), I honestly said that it was burdensome. Since there is an image that Pohang players, not captains, think of me, I said that I was burdened thinking that even with this image (even without claiming) I could be a source of strength to the players, but I still had to do it, so I said, “I will do it.”
When everything changes, people are burdened to compare with the past, but the goal is to lead the players well with my own strengths and make a good team. Because the players are doing well, I have been enjoying it without any complaints or burdens. 바카라
– I want to know what kind of image it is to the players.
I’m a bit comfortable and feel like a neighborhood brother. There’s no such thing as an age difference, so I play around a lot, but the coach pursues and has a style, so I want to create an atmosphere that is strict during training and jokes around the rest.
-After becoming captain, is there anything special you did or message you conveyed to the players?
I haven’t done that yet, but I’m thinking that a big role I’ll have to play will come when the season starts or the team is performing well. Also, with regards to that, I also have the idea of trying to show the players or teammates a little bit ahead of others by taking the lead in whatever is really good for them.
-You said it was burdensome compared to before, but please tell me in detail.
First of all, I think that Pohang could face such a comparison after starting this season because they had such good results. Of course, I think it was because the whole team did well rather than (Shin) Jin-ho hyung doing so well before, but I said that because when everything is compared, it always compares.
-Lee Myung-joo and Shin Jin-ho, who played together, all went to Incheon United.
I think it would be nice if all the seniors who were good went to Incheon and in some way they did better. Also, I want to show that we can’t go to Pohang even if we catch (Incheon) once.
