[골닷컴, 수원] Reporter Kang Dong-hoon = Even though Seongnam FC has been relegated to K-League 1, fans want to see victory. This is because the draw has increased to 7 matches. Acting coach Jeong Kyung-ho (42), who is well aware of this, said, “I will bring the results with earnestness for the rest of the game.”
Seongnam lost 1-2 at 7:30 pm on the 12th in the away match against Suwon FC in the Hana One Q K League 1 2022 Round 36 at Suwon Sports Complex. They conceded a goal at the start of the match, but Yoo In-soo (27) equalized the game. However, it collapsed after allowing a comeback in the 9th minute of the second half.
Seongnam, who lost that day, failed to add a win in their seventh game and stayed in 12th place on the leaderboard (6 wins, 8 draws, 22 losses, 26 points). The relegation was confirmed, but the goal of giving fans victory while achieving the beauty of Yujong was never achieved.
At the press conference after the match, Acting Jeong said, “It was a difficult game due to the early conceding. After putting in Kang Bin and Ma Sang-hoon, we switched to a four-back, and the game was run normally, and we even made a tie. I was shaken, and there were many chances after that, but it was a loss that I didn’t save.”
Seongnam’s motivation was very low, but, contrary to expectations, it showed good performance. Acting Jung said, “I liked the will and mindset to not give up and play until the end in a situation where the players were losing. It would have been nice to have gone beyond the equalizer, but it’s a pity.” will surely bring results with earnestness.”
