Gyeongnam FC head coach Seol Ki-hyun rated his protégé Seol Hyun-jin’s wonder goal as better than his own.
The Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 Round 25 match between Seoul Eland FC and Gyeongnam FC kicked off at 7 p.m. on June 6 at Mokdong Sports Complex in Seoul. The result was 2-0 in favor of the away club, Gyeongnam. Gyeongnam defeated Seoul Eland with back-to-back goals from Won Ki-jong in the 21st minute and Seol Hyun-jin in the 26th minute.
Head coach Seol Ki-hyun entered the press conference with a bright expression on his face. First, he said, “We have not been able to accumulate points and score goals in the last four games. We got a good result at a very important time. We didn’t get down despite the difficult atmosphere. We did our best,” and praised the players.
The atmosphere at Mokdong Sports Complex was electric as a group of English scouts watched the match. Coach Seol said, “There was a lot of cheering. I think it was good because K League 2 doesn’t have many spectators.”
He also said, “We didn’t do well when we made changes, but I want to give them credit for coping with the constant changes in play. We need to play a little more situationally. Whether it’s man-to-man or zone to try to stop us from doing what we do well, when we’re ready to deal with that, we can create results like we did today. We’ve won five in a row before, so I think our players are capable,” he said with confidence. 꽁머니지급
Finally, the coach spoke about the player who scored the wonder goal, Seol Hyun-jin: “I saw him play at Gwangju University and brought him here. He’s good at scoring unique goals, and he has a good left and right foot. He hasn’t had much playing time as he’s been adjusting and gaining experience, but he’s been feeling really good lately. He’s been playing a lot because he’s gaining fitness, and the goal itself shows his form.” “It reminded me a little bit (of his goal against Reading), but it was better. It was a desperate goal,” he said, rating his pupil’s goal higher than his own wonder goal.
