[골닷컴, 전주] Reporter Kim Hyung-joong = Gangwon FC lost to Jeonbuk Hyundai, putting the brakes on the challenge to advance to the AFC Asian Champions League. Coach Choi Yong-su felt sorry for the forward strikers’ finish.
Gangwon lost 0-1 in the away match against Jeonbuk in the 35th round of Hanawon Q K League 1 held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium at 7:30 pm on the 11th. Gangwon, who had not scored in two matches in a row, suffered their first defeat in the final round.
Coach Choi Yong-soo, who attended the press conference after the match, said, “I tried to get results against a good team, but it was disappointing. The absence of a forward striker was disappointing. I asked for a variety of patterns, but it was difficult because it did not go smoothly from the first half. I lost concentration in the set pieces. I had a chance, but it’s a pity that I couldn’t save it. I will recover quickly and prepare well for the Ulsan match.”
In this game, Gom Yeol came in as a substitute in the second half and started the game after a long time. There was a lot of taping on his left knee, where he had been injured.

The next opponent is Ulsan Hyundai. I haven’t won in 10 years. He said, “Ulsan is a team that is close to winning and has confidence. Our performance in the last game and today, such as tempo and finish, is declining. I want to give,” he said. He continued, “It’s my last home game in Chuncheon, so I want to give my fans a good present.”
As it was on this day, it was disappointing to finish the last match as Gangwon decided the chance from the front. Regarding this, he said, “The players seem to have a lot of energy. When they enter the stadium with concentration and fighting spirit without burden, they make good judgments and score goals, but recently, it seems that a slightly loose scene has emerged. A good team that needs to be improved is at the beginning of the season. and the end is consistent.”
He continued, “It’s a pity that we can’t do our thing regardless of the opponent’s situation. A good situation came when the players played with speed, such as a more bold and confident judgment, but recently, forward strikers seem to have a problem.” did.
