[골닷컴, 상암] Reporter Kim Hyung-joong = FC Seoul drew with Kim Cheon-sang-moo and could not confirm their stay.
Seoul did not score 1-1 in the home match against Gimcheon in the 35th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2022 held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 7:30 pm on the 12th. At the beginning of the game, Shin-Jin Kim took the lead, but in the second half, Young-Jae Lee gave the equalizer. At the same time, Daegu FC defeated Suwon Samsung, and Seoul could confirm their stay if they won, but it was postponed to the next game.
After the game, coach Ahn Ik-soo, who attended the press conference, said, “I’m sorry to the fans. I’m sorry that I can’t keep up with you always supporting me. There is a message left that requires all the members to work harder to overcome difficulties together.” .
Kim Shin-jin, the lead goalkeeper, played only the first half and was replaced at the start of the second half with Palosevic. Regarding this, coach Ahn Ik-soo explained the reason, “If you look at the team’s tactics, it requires a suitable role, but there was something lacking. Palosevich showed a lot of activity in a row until the midweek game, so it was difficult. Because of that, we replaced it.” He then urged Kim Shin-jin to work hard, saying, “It is encouraging to score a goal, but other situations require more effort.”
Even with Cage, who was put in at the beginning of the second half, he tried to be replaced in the middle of the second half, but Kim Jin-ya was injured and stayed at the stadium until the end. In terms of his performance, he did not live up to the expectations of Ahn Ik-soo. Against this, he cautioned against broad interpretation, saying, “As I said before, the role of team management was not suitable, so a change was necessary. There is nothing special because it happens all the time in the game situation.”
Seoul did well in the first half, but struggled a bit with Gimcheon’s offensive in the second half. Coach Ahn Ik-soo said, “Actually, the current FA Cup was very exhausting. But that cannot be the reason for our situation. It is something that all members should reflect on.”
