Jeju United’s (hereinafter referred to as Jeju) ‘captain’ Choi Young-jun (31) celebrated his 300th appearance in the K League with a great performance and even delivered the thrilling victory that fans had been waiting for.
Jeju won 2-0 in the Hana One Q K League 1 round 34 home game against Suwon held at Jeju World Cup Stadium on Sunday, October 22nd at 2 p.m. with consecutive goals from Kim Geon-woong in the 3rd minute of the first half and Yuri Jonatan in the 25th minute of the first half. . With the win on this day, 9th place Jeju (38 points) escaped from a winless streak of 7 consecutive games (1 draw, 6 losses) and widened the gap with 10th place Suwon FC (32 points), which is at risk of relegation, to 6 points. . In addition, they succeeded in completely turning around the atmosphere by achieving their first win under the acting manager Jeong Jo-guk system.
After the game, Acting Coach Jeong Jo-guk cited ‘one team’ as the driving force behind the victory, saying, “When courage is needed, we come together with faith. We trusted each other. Today’s victory is the result of all members of Jeju coming together as one.” And the person who held the shaky center of Jeju was none other than captain Choi Young-jun. Choi Young-jun rallied the players ahead of the game, saying, “If we gather all our capabilities and focus, we can overcome the current crisis. Let’s do our best with the determination to go into battle with Jeju’s pride.”
On the pitch, he spoke with his skills. In a game where the first goal was the most important, in the 4th minute of the first half, at a corner kick opportunity, he caught Kim Gun-woong’s score with a heel pass that caught the opponent off guard, giving them an invitation to victory. He also led a strong team atmosphere. Even when his colleagues made mistakes, he sometimes approached them first and gave them high fives to ensure that they did not lose confidence. When the game was not going well, he even took on the role of ‘voice leader’, encouraging his teammates with a loud voice on the pitch.
Choi Young-jun, who literally gave his all, played until the end as the 12th player along with the fans, continuing to applaud and cheer even after being replaced by Kim Seung-seop in the 28th minute of the second half. Choi Young-jun said, “It was a game that both teams were desperate for. And for Jeju fans, it was more than earnest. However, in order for earnestness to end in a happy ending, you must have confidence. Today, they were not afraid of making mistakes and showed Jeju’s confidence, so they gave the fans a win. “I was able to present it to you. I’m really happy,” he said.
It was an important game for me as well. By starting this day’s game, Choi Young-Jun achieved the milestone of playing in 300 K-League games. Unseong Hero Choi Young-jun, the K-League representative who is serving as a great example to his juniors with his skills and sincerity, said, “The team’s victory always comes first. It’s okay if I don’t shine. What I can do best is beat the opponent so that my team and colleagues can shine even more. “It’s about running one step further. No star shines alone. Only when my team and colleagues shine can I shine,” he said, showing his unchanging side.토스카지노 도메인
