Can this not be solved? When one comes back, someone else goes out. It is a situation where Jeonbuk Hyundai, which has been injured one after another from the beginning of the season, overlaps with unnecessary disciplinary deviation. It is only a long way from normal power operation.
The 10th round of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ between Gangwon FC and Jeonju World Cup Stadium on April 29th was a match in which Jeonbuk’s uncomfortable situation was once again confirmed. Jeonbuk, who lost 0-1 after being hit by Yang Hyeon-jun in extra time in the second half of Gangwon Province, lost all of their 2 home games and dropped to the relegation zone (10th place) with 3 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses, with 10 points.
Jeonbuk even took on another power minus factor. National team side defender Kim Moon-hwan returned from a muscle injury that day and hoped to give him a glimmer of hope, but striker Song Min-gyu tripped over the opponent’s tackle in the 22nd minute of the first half. Song Min-gyu, who hurriedly signaled that he couldn’t run, tried to stand on the pitch after receiving treatment, but after drawing an ‘X’ with both arms, he sat down again.
The bench, teammates, and even the home fans who refused to cheer were crying. It was worth it. Song Min-gyu was one of the few strikers who did his part in Jeonbuk, which was pushed into the worst crisis ever. He was recording the most attack points in the team with Jun Amano (1 goal, 2 assists) with 2 goals and 1 assist until the 9th round.
Fortunately, the situation was not serious enough to be immediately transported to the hospital, but now Jeonbuk is in a position where even the slightest injury cannot be taken lightly. National team left fullback Kim Jin-soo suffered a lumbar spine injury, and World Cup hero Cho Kyu-seong has to watch the progress of his calf injury. Even injured returnees are coming out again. Side striker Lee Dong-jun, who returned from a hamstring injury, was injured again in the away game against Jeju United in the 8th round.
Jeonbuk seems to be struggling to control its emotions as the long-time pride of ‘Seungri DNA’ has been erased and even the rehabilitation plant has stopped operating. In the Jeju expedition, manager Kim Sang-shik was sent off due to a decision protest and was unable to lead the 2 home games. Moon-hwan Kim, who played the return match against Gangwon that day, received a red card for abusive language, and captain Jeong-ho Hong received 2 warnings. 크크크벳
Head coach Kim Doo-hyun, who led the two home games in place of the disciplined command tower, hoped, “The more we do this, the more we want to unite,” but the veterans, who should first comfort the excited juniors, lost their composure. Jeonbuk, which is struggling to continue the race at the beginning of the 2023 season, which is close to the ‘era of loss’, is ahead of an away game in the 11th round against FC Seoul on the 5th, but the dominant view is that a reversal will be impossible without major changes.
